Dear South Point Students and Parents,

Happy Spring!  As we enter into the last four weeks of the academic year, there are many things yet to be accomplished.  I think both students and teachers are feeling the pressure.  I hope you will review the schedule of upcoming events and activities and mark them on your family calendars.

Congratulations to everyone that took part in all the planning and the hard work to make the South Point Annual Elementary School PTO Carnival a tremendous success.  Thank you to the parents who put so much time and effort into planning this wonderful event. The PTO Board and all the South Point teachers and staff volunteers did another amazing job.

We are beginning to develop our fall class lists. Parent input forms are available in the South Point school office until May 16. The parent input forms do not guarantee a specific teacher.  Class lists won’t be finalized until the end of August and they will be posted on  “Back to School Night” in the fall.

This month students are taking the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments.
These assessments are a very important measurement of our education program. Please try to schedule appointments and planned absences around the testing dates listed below. Thank you for your continued support of South Point Elementary School.  Your partnership is greatly valued and is a critical component in each child’s educational success!

Sincerely,

Dr. Jim Torkelson, Principal
