Dear Parents and Guardians, 

SNOW, SNOW and more SNOW! With the first day of spring arriving next Monday, March 20, we could sure use some signs of spring! As of today, our last day of school will be Friday, June 23!

We hope to see many of you tonight at our Book Fair Grand Family Event Night
from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. Due to the snow day on Tuesday, the Book Fair will be open on Monday for purchases during the school day. You may still order online through March 28 at You may also send in an order to school with your child by March 20. Checks should be made payable to South School PTA. We would like to thank this year’s book fair coordinators, T. J. O’Loughlin and Diane Finney for a very smooth and engaging book fair week.

Congratulations to our orchestra students who participated in the District String Festival on Monday. Orchestra director, Ms. Salviati, was so proud of them. They had a chance to play a song with the middle and high school string students!

More congratulations are due to our Jump Rope Team, the Hip Hoppin’ Hawks, who performed at the National SHAPE Conference in Boston yesterday! What a great and amazing honor to be invited.

MARCH is National Youth Art Month! Schools around the United States are celebrating the visual arts in education with student art shows in local and state exhibits. We are pleased to announce that the following South School students will have artwork on display in the Leach Library Children’s Room this year, along with their counterparts from Matthew Thornton and North School:  Alexa LaValle – Grade 1; Jack Collins- Grade 2; Kaitlin McInnis- Grade 3; Brady Charette - Grade 4, and Katelyn O’Neill- Grade 5. The exhibit is open to the public from March 7-31 during regular library hours.

Congratulations also to the 5th grade students whose black and white drawings will be featured in the South School chapter of the 2017 Art Annual Book. These students will each receive a copy of the book towards the end of the school year to commemorate their achievement in the visual arts. They are:  Chloe Bariteau, Alaina Beaudoin, Xavier Benner, Kelly Egan, Cameron Gingrow, Natalie Howard, Ashleigh Leone, Samantha McInnis, Nora Ransom and Amanda Robinson.
