The new year has started out fast and furious. The staff is working hard, students are working hard and we are looking forward to a great finish to the 2019-20 school year. A few dates that I do want everyone to be aware of that will be coming up. For students that will be attending Kindergarten next year, we have our Kindergarten Parent Orientation Night on February 19th at 6:00 pm in the Elementary Gym. We will visit with you about several things that will be needed prior to your students attending Southern Elementary School next school year. We will also be talking about our Kindergarten roundup day where all students who will be attending kindergarten next year will have either a morning or afternoon section to visit the classroom to meet the teachers and get to know the routines of the classroom. The date for this is May 4th. We are also currently taking applications for families who would like their students in either our 3-year-old or our 4-year-old Pre-School. You may pick up those applications in the Elementary Office and we will be making the decisions on those applications after March 15th. Parents will be notified by April 1st. Again as always if you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at the elementary school.
