School-Wide Picture

On Friday, September 9th, our entire student body and staff gathered in the formation of our American Flag for our annual school-wide picture. You can see examples of pictures from previous years below. This tradition is tied to our Red Ribbon Week theme, which takes place the week of October 23rd. Our school picture and t-shirts will be for sale soon. Watch for more information to come home!

A special "thank you" to Hendricks Power for supplying the bucket truck needed to lift our photographer high above us. We also want to thank Amy Phipps Photography for donating her services for our annual photo!

School-Wide Field Trip

We are thrilled to share that Danville South Elementary will be making a trip to the Hendricks County Courthouse square to witness the Bicentennial Torch Ceremony as the torch passes through Hendricks County on Friday, September 23rd. Indiana's 2016 Bicentennial celebration will honor our state’s 200 years of history. South Elementary students are learning facts regarding Indiana's history as we lead up to the big event. On the morning of the 23rd, we will travel to the Courthouse square and visit the "Bicentennial Experience" trailer, as well as the Hendricks County Museum. Our students will then line the square to welcome the torch as it makes its way around to the stage. Students will hear from dignitaries and watch the "balloon release," which will contain historic facts that our students will have added to the balloons. We are looking forward to witnessing this big event. For more information go to www.VisitHendricksCounty.org/Bicentennial
