Letter from the Principal-March

It is hard to believe that we are moving into our 3rd trimester. 
Students have been working hard and are growing physically, evident by the high water pants, and emotionally.
I am so proud of each of them. 
There are a few updates that will take place this Trimester-

Video Announcements-
We have started video announcements every Monday in the classroom.  Our Student council reps are going to share “Weekly Happenings!” 
Happenings include field trips, assemblies, student celebrations, at school and from home, and the weather. 
We are also going to say the Pledge of Allegiance. The Pledge of Allegiance will occur at the end of the announcements and will be optional. 
All students will be asked to stand and will be able to say the pledge or stand in silence. 
Teachers will share announcements on Monday’s at the beginning of the day in student’s homerooms!

If you have questions or ideas- we welcome the feedback and support.  

Spring Forum-March 6th
Our annual Spring Forum is going to take place on March 6th.  
This is our chance to share changes that have been made as a result of the Fall Forum.
 For example, we received feedback that classroom communication is inconsistent. 
As a staff we built common websites with standard content and agreed to keep information current. 
We also identified how to use our PTO parent liaisons and keep parents informed.
Please attend to give feedback on a new Math model for HGT and traditional students, communication, wellness, etc.

Spring Conferences-
We will be hosting conferences with some families for the remainder of February and a small portion of March. 
Teachers will be reaching out to families to schedule these conferences.
If you are not contacted by the teacher you do not need to attend a conference.

In May, we will also host Student Led Conferences for all families. 
Based on our parent survey, parents have asked for an opportunity to hear how all students are doing!
Student Led Conferences will empower your child to talk about areas of strength and growth.  

Thank you for your support and sending us your incredible children every day!
Sarina Compoz
Principal

Join the Wellness Committee at Southmoor Elementary
 

What does the Wellness Committee at Southmoor do?

Members of the Wellness Committee work with parents, faculty and students to guide physical, nutritional and emotional well-being for our school community

What has the Wellness Committee accomplished at Southmoor?

  • Assisted in the coordination of the 100 Mile Club. This running club started the fall of 2016 and has over 125 participants who have combined to run over 2,000 miles to date.

  • Organized and led a volunteer day to upgrade the school track

  • Led a change in school policy, in collaboration with the PBiS committee, to significantly decrease the amount of sweets given to students at school.

  • Received a grant from the American Dairy Association to increase physical activity at school.

What does the Wellness Committee plan to do in 2017?

  • Get fresh fruits and veggies into our classrooms weekly

  • Find healthier ways for our kids to spend free time when the weather doesn't allow outdoor activities

  • Increase communication about wellness at Southmoor

  • Solicit new funding to help support our programs

How can I support the Wellness Committee?

  •  Bring your child to the 100 Mile Club. You get to drop them off early (8am at the track or inside depending on the weather) and your child gets to start the day with exercise!

  • Contribute healthy snacks for birthdays and other celebrations 

  •  Join the Wellness Committee!

    Come to our next meeting on Tuesday, February 28th at 8am in classroom 126.
