Dear South School Families:


We are thrilled that we have this opportunity to hold an evening family event again! Please join us at the SS PTA Spring Fling on Wednesday, May 18 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM!  There will be fair food, a petting farm, crafts, Karaoke, and a photo booth. There is no cost to enter the event. Most of the activities are free except for the Cake Walk sponsored by Student Council, our Used Book Sale, and the purchase of food items. We will be serving hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage with peppers & onions, pizza, chips, drinks, cotton candy, popcorn, and snow cones! Parking for the event is right on site. There will be spaces in the back parking lot, as well as the side and the front lots. The event entrance is the gate to the playground on the backside of the building.


Thank you to those who have signed up to volunteer at our South School Spring Fling.  All volunteers will get a free dinner!  Please sign up with this Sign-Up Genius Link: South School Spring Fling 2022 Sign-up Genius. The volunteer shifts are in 1.5-hour segments (4:30 – 6:00 & 6:00 – 7:30), so you will have time to enjoy the event with your family members, as well!


Our biggest need right now are donations of Used Books and more cake donations for the ever-popular CAKE WALK hosted by our Student Council. Proceeds from the Cake Walk will go to offsetting the cost of the Fifth Grade Send-Off Party. Please fill out the form sent home with your child this week and return to the office or use this Google Form: Cake Walk Donations Sign-up 2022. Home-baked and store-bought cakes are welcome. Any donations will need to be dropped off to the South School Main office by May 16. Student Council thanks you in advance for your donations!




Used-Book Sale:  We will once again be sponsoring a Used-Book Sale at the Spring Fling. Please send in any suitable CHILDREN’S books in good condition to the library by Monday, May 16.


Our Student Council is once again sponsoring a South School Spirit Week from Tuesday, May 31 to Friday, June 3 for which South School families will want to plan and prepare!

This week, we practiced Mermaid Breath, an original breath created by Shelby in Miss Deschene’s first grade class.

In Shelby’s words, “This breath is good for your heart.   It helps you to be kind to friends and all living creatures.

Imagine that you are under the sea with all of the sea creatures.  As you breathe in, imagine that you are able to breathe in the warm water and bring your arms up over your head.  As you breath out, pretend that you are blowing bubbles while you bring your arms down like you are swimming through the water.  Do this three times.  Think about how you feel.” From now until the end of the year we will be sharing breaths created by our learners.


We Choose Love,


Linda Boyd
