Mrs. White - Southview Primary School


Welcome back!

Hello Southview Families both virtual and traditional! I hope this newsletter finds you well as we all continue to navigate through these unforeseen times that we are walking through. The 2020-21 school year is officially here, and I am here to help! With that being said this newsletter will be filled with resources to guide you and your family with meeting some of the needs you may have or could share with someone else in need.


Ways to Get Organized for back to school!

  • Purchase supplies (pencils, paper etc.)
  • Get a planner/calendar
  • Create a daily schedule
  • Write out assignments (this will help virtual students tremendously)
  • Have a designated place where school work is completed each day (virtual)
  • Utilize sticky notes as reminders... put them on the fridge or somewhere you are sure to look.

Masks are required!
