Welcome to our South Elementary website! It is our intention that you find useful information regardless if you are a current parent of a South Elementary student or a prospective parent.
South Elementary was named a National No Child Left Behind School of Excellence in 2004 by the National Department of Education. South Elementary was chosen because of our continued academic growth for all students. In an effort to continue to have our students grow academically and to function at grade-level, we believe in meeting the individual academic needs of all students. Throughout the day, we target each child’s instruction by using each student’s assessment information to guide what they need to learn and focus on.
We are a National Character Counts school. Through Character Counts, it is our hope that we are creating “South Elementary Kids with Character,” who follow the six pillars of character; respect, responsibility, caring, fairness, trustworthiness and citizenship in all they do and in all they say. Character Counts is evident throughout the building; on the walls, in the daily announcements, in the conversations we have with students when they make poor choices, to our monthly Character Count assembly that recognizes students as “Kids with Character.”
We believe that South Elementary is a great place to be! If you are considering South Elementary as the school for your child, we encourage you to come in and visit. I would love to give you a tour and answer any questions you may have.
