Art News
Artist of the Week
Jeremiah Brayton//5th grade

The art room is in need of disinfecting wipes and/or baby wipes.
Donations are greatly appreciated! 

Southmoor Elementary's Evening of the Arts is Wednesday, May 17th beginning at 6:30 pm.
The Southmoor Super Singers will perform as will both our Beginning + Advanced Bands.
Please come walk through Southmoor's Art Gallery as all students K-5 will have artwork on display throughout the halls.

Southmoor Staff Update
The personnel committee has been working hard to fill our TBD positions.   We want to welcome:

Wanda Matt to 3rd grade.  Wanda has been a 3rd grade teacher and coach at Bromwell Elementary. 
Katie Riley to 5th  grade.  Katie has been in education for the past 5 years at Brown as a special education paraprofessional.
Kim Esbenshade to a half time literacy intervention position.  We are excited to have her impact with students in grades k-5
Carolyn Webb will be a literacy interventionist and will coach/evaluate teachers.

This is also the time of year when we have to say goodbye to incredible educators-

Mrs. Dawkins is going to return to her job at the district.  Luckily she will continue to work with Southmoor on project based learning.
Mr. Hogden is completing his degree in architecture.  He may be back for a few days next year to help with projects!
Mrs. Norman is moving into a middle school literacy position and will be a team lead.  She is going to be incredible.

We have used our funds to increase the number of teachers from 20-21. 
The increase in staffing is due to a staff and community priority to have class sizes as small as possible.  
As a result, we do not have the funding to have an assistant principal during  the 2017-2018 school year.
Ms. Hynes you will be missed!

Southmoor CSC Representatives 2017-2018
Based on the CSC ByLaws, and due to the minimum number of self-nominations for CSC,
there will be no ballot for CSC elections this year.  Congratulations to
our new CSC parent representatives: Neal Meier and Nicki Robbins!  
They will be joined by new CSC Advisor, Kristi Lamar and new Business Representative, Lori Lee.
 For more information please see the following document: www.southmoorpto.org/uploads/9/0/7/6/90765425/csc_ballot_announcement_2017.docx
