Daily Student Mission
Today at South Grove I choose to be
ready to learn
responsible for myself and my property
and respectful of others
I will make today a great day
for my classmates, my teachers, and myself.
Library Temporarily Closed - What can I read?
Where do I get books?
- Mrs. McKinney will be setting up a temporary library station outside the library and will do her best to provide a variety of books for students to check out during the renovation.
- The Beech Grove Library has a wonderful selection of books. Students can go online to verify that books are in the AR (Accelerated Reader) program and fit in their reading level.
- Mrs. Collinsworth will be adding the Kindle App and Nook App to the student tablets. Parents will be responsible for sharing the log in and passwords for students to use these programs.
How long will the library be closed?
The library's HVAC unit is scheduled to be replaced January 16 - January 27.
What if I have questions about this project?
Please email Mrs. Reid directly if you have questions about the renovation plans. We are very anxious to have these improvements made to our school!

Ten young ladies braved the cold weather and participated in the Arthritis Foundation's Annual Jingle Bell 5K. The coaches were extremely proud of these runners. We will make an announcement at school in February regarding our plans for a spring running club.
