Dear South Point School Parents and Students,

Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for the evenings of November 10 and 13 from 4:00 – 7:00 and Friday, November 14 from 8:00 – 4:00. We value the opportunity that we have to sit down with you and discuss the educational needs of our students.  We recognize the importance of building a strong student, parent and teacher partnership ensuring the success of all South Point students.

We have had excellent attendance at PTO meetings. I would like to encourage you to participate in this valuable organization and be an active member in the Elementary PTO.
This year “Turkey Bingo” will be held at New Heights on Thursday, November 20. Everyone from South Point and New Heights schools are welcome.

American Education Week is November 16-22. We are looking forward to this weeklong celebration of Public Education.    

As our school year progresses, we at South Point School hope that you continue your involvement in your son or daughter’s education.  The guidance that we get from parents makes our job much more enjoyable and is reflected in the positive attitudes of the South Point School students.

****With the constantly changing weather please make sure that your child brings warm clothes for outside activities. Please look over the important dates for the November calendar and use them as a handy reference for important school activities scheduled for this month.



Dr. Jim Torkelson, Principal
