The Southern Local Back to School Bash took place on August 29th. It was an AMAZING evening where the community and school came together to support our kids. The evening consisted of FREE food, FREE school supplies, Free games and bounce houses, FREE materials and goodies from our local organizations and churches, FREE music by our own Mighty Indian Marching Band and Special Guest Zach Paxson!
We would like to thank everyone who had a hand in making this event a success,

Southern Local Jr./Sr. High School was awarded a $1,134,000.00 School Improvement Grant for the 2012-13 school year. This is the 2nd year they have been awarded these funds.

The changes will be carried into the 2012-13 school year and continued growth is expected.
The 2012-13 grant will fund the following programs: Renaissance Learning (Accelerated Reader, Accelerated Math, Successful Reader, Math Facts in a Flash, Benchmarking and Progress monitoring), Project More, Intervention Tutors, ISS Monitor, School and Home Officer, Night School, Professional Development for Staff, Community Activities and Events, Books, Books and More Books.
