South School students and staff recently gathered to watch a group of lucky students pie Principal Jake Dore and teachers Stephen Curley and Kevin Birnstill!

Here is a look at some nice artwork on display at the South School! Mrs. Anello's 2nd grade artists at the South recently learned about the Lunar New Year/Chinese New Year. Since 2022 is the Year of the Tiger, the students created a symmetrical tiger by folding a piece of white paper in half and drew "half" of the animal with oil pastel on one side of the paper. They folded the paper and rubbed the back of the paper so the oil pastel transferred to the other side creating a symmetrical image. Then students added some color with liquid watercolor paints. Finally, the students brainstormed about goals they had for this year and wrote those words around their tigers, with many choosing South School S.H.A.R.K. values - safe, hardworking, accountable, respectful, and kind.
