The classroom Valentine Parties will take place today at the time set by each teacher. Thank you to our Room Parents for making this an exciting day for our students. If you are planning to volunteer to assist with a classroom Valentine Party, please be sure to sign in and obtain a visitor sticker from the office . As you know, your students’ safety is a top priority at South and it is important that staff be able to determine not only who is in the building, but where they can be found at all times. Further, due to classroom sizes, the number of party volunteers, the use of hallways for party games, along with the fact that parties will be taking place at different times (i.e. some students will be receiving educational instruction while other class parties are ongoing), it is important that volunteers remain with the class for which they have volunteered.
Today is “B” 6th Grade Music Day.
Penny Wars are scheduled for the end of this month. The PTC is still looking for daily Volunteers to count change. If you are available, please consider signing up. Penny Wars Counting Sign-up
