SOUTH SCHOOL PTO YEARBOOK
This year the PTO is piloting a South School yearbook-the first of many, we hope, featuring photographs the teachers and staff have taken of the kids at school throughout the year! You can follow this LINK to order. We are offering both hardcover and softcover books, and each book purchase earns you an e-book, as well. The checkout is easy and intuitive. The only thing you’ll love more is the actual book, to be delivered to your kids on June 10th, the second to last day of school, and will not be signed at school. The deadline for book orders is May 1st. This is not a fundraiser, just a lot of fun for our students! The books cost $26.24 for a hardcover book and $16.74 for a softcover book.
We welcome parents only of our incoming Kindergarten children to join us for an overview of the Kindergarten program. We will share highlights of the daily program and tour sections of the building.
When: Wednesday, May 15th 6:00 p.m.
Where: South School Lunchroom
The Scholastic Book Fair will be open before and after Kindergarten Orientation for parents to purchase books.
