Dear South School Families:

We hope you are a WINNER of a Santa Breakfast Raffle! Santa himself will be picking the winners via Facebook Live on the South School PTA Facebook page beginning at 11:00AM tomorrow morning (Saturday 12/5). Thank you to those who participated in this aspect of our traditional holiday breakfast virtually! Many thanks to our contributors to this annual event! We appreciate your loyalty!

Our teachers shared that they are impressed with our learners’ ability to login to their Google Meet sessions and stay engaged the whole time. BRAVO learners! Even our first graders are doing a great job with this! Thank you, families, for helping your children create a productive workspace for themselves and for preparing them to be on time for all their remote learning sessions!

We have some special Spirit Days coming up for learners and staff! Your child’s participation in these days will be recorded in a school-wide video soon after the event. We hope this lifts everyone’s spirits!

  • Flannel Friday is today!
  • Wear Your Favorite Holiday Hat, Headband or Jewelry - Wednesday, December 9
  • Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest – Friday, December 18

Registration is open for the 2021 Learn to Ski and Snowboard Club, sponsored by McIntyre Ski Area. Register online at (click the Learn to Ski Tab, click School Programs, select South Elementary School, and fill out the registration form). Registration closes on Friday, December 18 at 9:00AM. Hope for SNOW!


The LHS Student Council’s Blood Drive will be held on Wednesday, December 9 from 3:00 to 7:00PM in the LHS cafeteria. If you are interested in donating blood, please use the link below to sign up:


The Red Cross has strict COVID guidelines which will be followed. The Londonderry Student Council and the Red Cross want to ensure the safety and well-being of the Lancer community! Please consider donating during this holiday season. Thousands of blood drives are being cancelled across the country. The LHS Student Council is thrilled to be holding theirs to do their part!


Mr. Biron and I will continue to produce prerecorded morning announcements for our “Hawks at Home” throughout this remote period for all students. The links to these are included in your child’s Google Classroom. Most learners watch them before engaging in their Morning Meeting. We will include reminders of upcoming events, Mr. Lohnes’ declarations of each National Day, a kid-friendly joke, reminders of remote learning expectations, and some content from the Choose Love curriculum. We began last week with reviewing strategies for gaining COURAGE. Ask your child if they can name all 4+ strategies!


We Choose Love,


Linda Boyd
