Today is DAY 5

October Theme – October’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is “Acceptance.”


Quote of the Day – This week’s quote is from Franklin D. Roosevelt.  Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships – the ability of all people, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace.”  Just as the United Nations builds on differences, our school and community need to value differences.

Pink Out News – South staff and students are reminded that today is PINK OUT day!  Pink is everywhere because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  To support Breast Cancer Awareness, South is wearing PINK today.  Make sure to wear Pink to support this cause and to show your school spirit.  A prize will be awarded to the pinkest homeroom in each grade.  Don’t be afraid to go all out!
