SOUTH SCHOOL LOVES READING AND WRITING
Thank you for the tremendous turnout to celebrate South School Literacy Night. We are grateful to share the gift of literacy with our South School families. If you’re looking for ways to support your readers and writers at home, here is a presentation that includes information on literacy development, tips for reading at home, and new & notable books. Access a family book list here.
A huge thank you to our South School teachers and staff for making this night possible - and extra special thank you to Dr. Amy Stewart, Mrs. Kate Fanning, Mrs. Amy Holaday, and Dr. Kelly Zonghetti for all of their efforts in making this night a success.
BIRTHDAYS AT SOUTH SCHOOL
We welcome caregivers to join children in the cafeteria for lunch on their birthdays
A few reminders:
—We kindly ask that parents reserve decorations, treats, and other celebratory items (including hats, balloons, and goodie bag items) for celebrations outside of school.
—Caregivers can arrange a date with the classroom teacher.
—Caregivers should check-in in the front office to receive a birthday lanyard.
—We ask that caregivers return to the office to check-out when students go to recess.
VALENTINE MEAL KITS FOR VETERANS
Beginning this month, we offer a service opportunity to all District 35 families to donate non-perishable food items to make Valentine Meal Kits for Veterans at the Midwest Veterans Closet. This food drive is hosted in partnership with Gratitude Generation, who will be adding sweet treats to each kit. Bins will be available at all three school buildings. Help us reach our goal of 100 meal kits. Click here to sign up for a non-perishable item.

PROUD TO PARTNER WITH THE ALLIANCE FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD
We’d like to share our policy regarding Smartwatches (e.g. Gizmos, Apple Watch) at school. We understand this serves as a useful tool to communicate with your child. However, we kindly ask that students leave their watch in their backpack and put them “Away for the Day.” Please know that changes in your child’s dismissal will be communicated with your child directly. If you need something during school hours, please call or email the South School office at email@example.com or 847.835.6400.
If your child has a transportation change, please use the ONLINE FORM to submit the change by 1:30 p.m. each day. Please note that we will not be able to accommodate changes after 1:30 p.m. If you have any questions about dismissal plans please contact Kris McCargar at 847-835-6414.
DAILY TRANSPORTATION CHANGE (DUE each day by 1:30 p.m.)
