Below is a friendly letter written by a third grader from Mrs. Johnson's class, Nathanael. It touched my heart and made me laugh. It reminded me of all the things that I am grateful for at the South Elementary School. The best part of my day is working with all students (such as Nathanael) who are respectful, caring and hardworking! I asked what he meant by describing me as "clean" : clean living, showering each day, making sure the cafe is clean? He replied, "Your office is so clean and neat!" Happy Thanksgiving to all! Enjoy family, friends and good food.

I think the best part is seeing all my friends on the bus!
At the South School we promote safety in all we do. That is why we practice fire drills, shelter in place drills, off site evacuations, and bus evacuations. Students are told the expectations, receive explanations about various situations and then we practice.
I am so proud to announce the winner of the first Great Ridership Award: Jayden, a kindergarten student.
He models perfect bus etiquette and rule following.
Mrs. Mulvey will keep the community connected to various news and events through blog postings.
