VISION & HEARING SCREENINGS
The vision and hearing screenings for K, 1st and 2nd grades will take place on October 1st and 2nd. The State of Illinois requires written notification that states, “Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.” If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our school nurse, Mrs. Joyce.
SOUTH SCHOOL MURAL
Over the past several months, you may have noticed that the front hallway of South School received a face lift! Mrs. Angie Wilson and Ms. Sarah Forsythe worked with our 2nd grade students to create a hallway mural. In doing so, our students worked together to leave a small legacy here at South School with a mural that brightens our hallway!
