After a tough competition this past week, South Elementary placed second in the 1st Annual Orange Leaf Froyo Spirit Challenge.  First place Jenison Pinewood wins by just $8.35.  Due to your support, the South PTC will receive a check for $676.28.  In addition, Orange Leaf is providing a Froyo Party for ALL South students.  The PTC will work with Froyo to schedule this party in the spring.  Thank you again for all of your purchases AND please don’t be too hard on Principal Roberts when you see him walking the halls in a Jenison t-shirt.
