    Kindness Week at South 

    brightly frosted donutsBreakfast with Buddies

    This spring, the South PTA is sponsoring a breakfast with buddies for each grade.  Grades K & 3 will have their special breakfast on Friday, February 10, 7:00am -7:25am. Students were given a blue form that needs to be filled out and returned by Monday, February 6, so we can make sure we have enough donuts and juice for everyone.  Make sure to fill out the form with the student's name, teacher and the name of their guest.  Due to space constraints, we must ask that only children in Grades K & 3 and one adult attend as we do not have room for extra family members.

    Below is the schedule for all Breakfast with Buddies: 

    Friday, February 10 - Grades K & 3

    Friday, March 10  - Grades 1 & 4

    Friday, April 14 - Grades 2 & 5

    Dress for the Weather Girl dressed in winter coat and hat

    Remind your child to bring their winter gear to school. We need all students to dress for going out in the cold weather. Students go outside for 20 minutes of recess every day.  We need students to be safe and warm by wearing a winter coat, snowpants, hat, gloves and boots.  If you are having trouble providing these items for your child, contact our counselor, Mrs. Brandi Krabbenhoft or call the school.  

    South Art Gallery

    Each week Mrs. Gieser will highlight student art work by displaying it in our South Art Gallery right outside the library.
