THE BOOK FAIR IS COMING TO SOUTH SCHOOL
The book fair is coming back to South School December 7th & 8th. We are excited to get as many books as possible into the hands of our students.
You may shop with your child from 8 - 9 a.m. or 3 - 4 p.m. If you are unable to come during those times, your child may bring money, or use eWallet, to shop for books from 8:40-9:00 or during their recess time.
Check out the interactive book flyer and set up an eWallet for your child here.
We look forward to this exciting event!

PARENTS CELEBRATE GROWTH
South parents and caregivers reflected on what they are most proud of in their child’s learning. We share in this celebration of success and growth and extend thanks and gratitude to our South School teachers and staff for all they do to support our students. Read some of the comments here.
PROUD TO PARTNER WITH THE ALLIANCE FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD
THANK YOU TO OUR VETERANS
We are pleased to report that our first annual Veterans Day Celebration at South School was a success! Thank you to the veterans who joined us to model the importance of serving one’s country with honor and dignity. We are confident that our students will remember the impact that you’ve made on their lives today and always. Enjoy this video of our special celebration.
THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING OUR COMPOSTING DINNER
On Thursday night, many South School families gathered to support our school composting initiative. After families finished dinner, they practiced sorting their food waste into the appropriate bins in the lunchroom—compost, recycle, landfill. We’re excited to see our Southies continue this practice every day after they finish their lunch. This initiative supports our common goal of sustainability within Glencoe Public Schools. Click here to view some photos from the event.
We’d like to share our policy regarding Smartwatches (e.g. Gizmos, Apple Watch) at school. We understand this serves as a useful tool to communicate with your child. However, we kindly ask that students leave their watch in their backpack and put them “Away for the Day.” Please know that changes in your child’s dismissal will be communicated with your child directly. If you need something during school hours, please call or email the South School office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847.835.6400.
If your child has a transportation change, please use the ONLINE FORM to submit the change by 1:30 p.m. each day. Please note that we will not be able to accommodate changes after 1:30 p.m. If you have any questions about dismissal plans please contact Kris McCargar at 847-835-6414.
DAILY TRANSPORTATION CHANGE (DUE each day by 1:30 p.m.)
