April 2015

Dear South Point School Parents and Students,

The fourth reporting period is underway. Our spring Parent /Teacher Conferences were held and once again thank you for the wonderful turnout. Your feedback is important to us as we work to make our educational programs the best they can be. We value your comments and your involvement helps to make South Point an excellent school. Also, during conferences, our Library Spring Book Fair was a great success and again we thank you for your support.

On behalf of the South Point PTO, I would like to invite all New Heights and South Point families to attend the annual “Family School Carnival” event, which will be held Friday, April 24. Please mark this date on your calendar for a fun evening with your family and friends! Planning is currently progressing and if you are willing to help please watch for PTO meeting reminder slips that provide meeting times and locations.

Rehearsals are currently taking place as we prepare for the South Point “Third Grade Program”.  The music teacher, third grade teachers and students are preparing for this big event scheduled for Thursday, April 28. The 5th Grade Band will perform on April 30 at 9:00 am.

This year MCA testing dates for Reading, Math, and Science are April 7 - May 8. If you are planning on being gone for any reason during these testing times please contact your child’s teacher to make testing arrangements.

Please continue to remind your children to dress for the cool weather as spring approaches.  We appreciate your help in reminding your children to look both ways when crossing the parking lot and streets while walking to and from school.

We look forward to the continued success of our school year and thank you for the support you have shown for all the school activities that we have at South Point School.

Dr. Jim Torkelson
South Point, Principal
