Principal's Message

Dear South School Families,

Welcome to the 22016-2017 school year! I am excited for another school year and look forward to working with you and our dedicated staff in order to provide the best possible educational experience for your children.

We all play an important role in helping our children grow and develop so that they can be successful in a rapidly changing society. As educators, it is our responsibility to design engaging, relevant and rigorous learning opportunities that will help each student achieve his or her goals. These efforts go beyond just teaching academics. Our staff is also committed to educating the “whole child” by modeling what it means to be a safe, respectful, and responsible citizen.

Supportive families are also essential for our students to realize their potential as learners. You are their first and most important role model and their biggest champions. We welcome and encourage you to get involved in your child’s education here at South. With open communication and collaboration, we are confident that we can provide all students with a safe, caring, and supportive environment that encourages them to become lifelong learners and leaders.

If you have any questions or would like more information on how you can get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to another wonderful year together!
