Thanks to everyone who came out for Bad Moms 2 last week.  That was a lot of fun and I’ll be working on more movie fundraisers!

I also posted on the South PTC Facebook page about a possible Rebounderz fundraiser night, please make sure to make your selections so I can find the best time and an estimated number of attendees.

The lost & found section is growing, majority of items have been hung up to try to make it easier for students to spot their missing things.  Come in and take a look if you’r student is missing an item!

Also, the trophy case that the PTC paid for has been installed.  The maintenance dept created a new base for it and Mr. Roberts has begun adding trophies to it.  It was also used to display the Veterans pictures that were sent in!  It looks really nice and we can’t wait to see all the accomplishments that we get to show off thanks to the hard work of our South students!  Come in and take a look, its just to the right of the gym doors!

Thanks for your support!
