Southern Local Parent Survey

Winter is here!

Winter is a cold dreary time of the year. Not as much daylight, snow and ice making driving a nightmare, but the kids don't care. Most of them want to go out and play in the snow. There is a hope for snow days. Adults can't wait for spring for the nice warm weather and signs of summer. Flu season is knocking on our door. Keeping healthy and being in school, is a key to academic success.

The week of January 20th is the beginning of the second semester. The poor groundhog will be pulled out of his nice warm bed to tell us if winter will be over soon or six more weeks of winter. It also means state testing will begin soon; seniors will be preparing for the next phase of their life, and adults are wondering where the days are going. It seems like yesterday was the first  day of school and now the school year is half over. Let's brush the winter blues off our shoulders and enjoy this time of the year through the eyes of a child. 

Thank you for all the hard work you do!
