The South Spotlight

News and Updates from South Elementary - 06/14/22

Greetings South Families,

As the 21-22 school comes to a close today, I would like to thank the entire South community for your ongoing support and partnership - the last 2+ years have presented unprecedented challenges to our school programs and day-to-day routines. Through it all, your children have shown up every day and found ways to grow both academically and socially despite the circumstances they faced. I hope all of our students enjoy a well deserved summer break.

Preparations for the new school year are already underway - I will provide periodic updates throughout the summer months regarding the opening of ParentVUE in August, back-to-school information, and important fall dates to be aware of. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me in the weeks ahead.

Best of luck to our outgoing 5th grade students and families, you will be missed! To all - have a wonderful summer break!

Dave D'Andrea

Principal, South Elementary

The Annual Last Day Send Off! Have a Great Summer!
