This month, your child will participate in a mindfulness workshop led by Lani Gerszonovicz from Banner Day Camp. In the sessions, students will practice breathing and mindfulness techniques that increase awareness and are naturally soothing. Students will learn tools to improve concentration and become more focused. Ask your child what they learned (see attachment). Kids love sharing these calming yet empowering techniques!
Over the next couple of months, you will notice that the front hallway of South School will be receiving a face lift! Mrs. Angie Wilson and Ms. Sarah Forsythe will be working with our 2nd grade students to create a hallway mural. In doing so, our students will not only brighten our hallways, they will work as a team to leave a small legacy here at South School.
This project will allow our students and staff to collaborate and create a timeless work of art. Painting has begun and will be completed this winter. Please excuse our mess in the meantime, we are busy creating art from our hearts.

The Park District will be doing construction on the basketball courts at South School BEGINNING MONDAY October 16th. A chain link fence will be installed to keep the project contained. The fence will only be around the court area and should not impede the flow of traffic to the playground area. The project will include new asphalt, coating the surface and basketball hoops. We will work closely with the Park District to ensure the safety of all of our students during the duration of the construction. The project should be completed by early November.
