Commemorative South School T-Shirts Orders Due May 8
As many of you know South Elementary School will close after this school year. The school has been a part of our community since 1937. Many memories have been made and will be remembered here.

The South Elementary PTO would like to help commemorate this by having a picture taken with all the students and teachers. We are having a South t-shirt sale for this, which is open to students and families past and present. You can purchase as many as you would like. They will then be available for pick up at the South Elementary School. Each family will be notified when they are available.

The sale will run online from April 29 to May 8. To place your order go to:
