It went out at the beginning of the year but may have been lost or missed in the back to school shuffle.  We would love to have a BoxTops Coordinator and a Scripts gift card program coordinator. If you’re interested, reach out to our volunteer coordinator- Samantha Siegert either on facebook or call/text: 616-240-0678.

If you didn’t see the Facebook post yesterday- Huge congrats to South’s VEX IQ Teams!
“Congrats to South’s very own sixth grade Angry Animals VEX IQ Team for making it to state today! These boys also won the Teamwork Award and the Excellence Award today.All 3 South teams did a great job today. All of them made it to the final round playoffs and had some of their highest scores of the season. Congratulations to all of these boys for a wonderful season. They should be extremely proud of their performances today. Let’s celebrate the great job these coaches, parents, and especially the boys did to make this season a success!”

Hey did you hear we have a CARNIVAL coming up?!  I’ve been working a ton on this event and am SO EXCITED about it!  Friday January 20th from 4:30pm-8:00pm at South! I have made a ton of games and am so thankful to the parents stepping up to help!  Bring CASH and buy tickets for your kiddos to play games and win prizes.  We will also have Jets Pizza for sale in the cafeteria.  Fun for the whole family!  We hope you can make it!!
And if you’re able, I need volunteers.  One hour shifts! Buy your kids some tickets and let them play for an hour while you volunteer!
If we dont have volunteers, I’ll have to close down rooms early, and I really don’t wanna do that!
