Dear Parents or Guardians of Pennridge South Middle School Students:

I am writing to make you aware of some important reminders, requests and updates.  We are in the last two months of the school year and before you know it, it will be time to check PowerSchool for your child’s interim progress.

The SCN will have its monthly meeting on Monday, May 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the library. The SCN has organized two family activities to end the school year.  On Saturday, May 6 from 8 a.m. until noon is the A&N breakfast fundraiser. Ten percent of all proceeds will be donated to South. Dairy Queen Night for our families is scheduled for Thursday, June 8. A portion of the sales earned between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. will be donated to South. You will find a double-sided flyer included in your child’s report card envelope. 

The PSSA science test for Grade 8 students will begin on Tuesday, May 2 and conclude on Wednesday, May 3. The Keystone exam for Grades 7 and 8 Algebra 1 students is scheduled for Monday, May 15 and Tuesday, May 16. The testing dates are located on the monthly calendar, which can be found below.

South’s final Blood Drive of the school year is scheduled for Monday, May 8 from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. The event will be held in the auditorium.

Everyone is invited to the annual Arts Festival scheduled on Tuesday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium. Student projects from art and family and consumer sciences will be on display for all to enjoy. The evening will be complete with a food and embroidery demonstration. Please come out with your families so your student can show off their wonderful work.

Ahoy Mateys! The Cardboard Boat Regatta is returning to South Middle School. Don’t miss out on the fun of building and racing a cardboard boat built with a friend. Test your engineering skills as you try to build a boat out of materials that are not meant to be sea-worthy! This year’s event will take place on Thursday, May 25. Students who are interested are to attend the informational meeting and to see Mrs. Bonnem. Students must listen to announcements to receive more information and to obtain a registration form.

The eighth grade Luau Dance is scheduled for Friday, June 2 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Remember school dress code is enforced at our school dances. In order to attend,  eighth grade students must have a signed permission slip.

The Lost and Found collection is growing! Please encourage your child to check the Lost and Found for their missing personal items. All items that are left at the conclusion of the school year will be washed and donated to the Salvation Army or some comparable organization that helps families.

Lastly, in an effort to go green, South’s students are encouraging their parents to use our recycling bin for newspaper. The recycling bin is located at the back of the building near our loading dock.

As you can see, we have many things that are occurring at South Middle School. Our calendar and newsletter can be found below for your convenience.

Have a beautiful day.

Sincerely,

Dr. Felicia E. McAllister, Ed. D., Principal
