We are doing a South student Book Exchange!
The week of October 16th, South students will be invited to bring in books from home that they no longer read. Each morning we will have donation boxes at the front entrances to collect the books. The kids will be marked down for how many books they bring. Friday (October 20th) Students who brought in books will be able to go and pick out the same number of books they donated in new-to-them books to keep!

Spirit Week is the first week of October to coincide with homecoming.  Thursday of that week will be our annual MSU vs U of M Spirit day where we ask for a $1 donation as a vote for your favorite team.  The winning team will have their fight song played and team flag flown on the school flagpole.  If anyone has the two flags, please let me know!
