News from the South Hall

Dear Parents,


During these last weeks of lent, let us remember how the mercy of God falls upon us as we make mistakes and stumble and fall during our day. We should in turn show mercy to those around us who may have made a mistake, stumbled or fell as well.


Be gentle with each other for each carries their own cross visible or invisible to others.


After School Playground Safety

Students may go to after-school care at 3:00 p.m. They may also reside in the South hall lobby to be supervised until 3:15 p.m. by a supervisor.


NO student is to remain on the premises for the purpose of playing on the playground after school without parental supervision standing on the playground.


ASTOP Presentations

ASTOP presentations in our classrooms have concluded for this school year.  These speakers did a wonderful job talking with students about being safe.


Forward Testing

Forward testing has begun for our elementary students.  It will conclude before Good Friday.  Look for communication for your grade level coming home via your student’s classroom teacher.


God Bless,

Steven Kelnhofer
