South welcomes back students and families to the 2016-17 school year!

South School Teacher Receives Outstanding Teacher Award – South Elementary School first grade teacher Martyna Michalak received the Outstanding Beginning Teacher Award by the Illinois Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and Loyola University's School of Education. This is her third year teaching at South Elementary School. “The most rewarding part of teaching is seeing just how much student learning and growth can take place during only one school year. It is immensely rewarding when students look at me with wide eyes and speak with enthusiasm and eagerness because they just realized something,” she said. Ms. Michalak was recognized for her honor at the May 18 Board of Education meeting.
