    South Park vision statement

    We envision a school of professionals, focused on advancing the academic performance of all students we serve. We see a school that values the cultural diversity of the community we educate by engaging students with challenging curriculum designed to enhance each learner’s ability to think independently, creatively, and critically. South Park will be a safe, orderly, and welcoming oasis valued and respected by students, parents, neighbors, and community leaders.

    our focus on parents

    Parents are an important partner at South Park.  It is a proven fact that a parent's involvement is a major factor of their child's success in school. We, the staff, need our parents to participate daily in their child's education.  Here are a few simple steps to follow that will make your child a standout in their classroom:

    • Start the day with a good breakfast.  Make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast at home or send them to school on time so that they can eat a good breakfast in his/her class.
    • Make sure they are prepared when they leave home.  Check to make sure they have their homework and any materials, projects and supplies they will need for a successful day.  
    • When you or they get home have a conversation about school.  What did they learn?  What was the best part of the day?  Were there any problems?  What is the homework?  Make and effort to show that their schooling is important to you.
    • Make sure you check their backpack.  See if their are any important papers or notices from the teacher or the school.
    • Set aside time for homework.  Sit down with your child and guide them if they have any problems.  Make sure they know that you value their hard work and their effort.  If your child is having a hard time with the homework, contact their teacher and find out how and what you can do to help.
    • Read! Read! Read!  Read to or with your child.  Read for your own enjoyment.  Read newspapers, magazines, and books. Turn off the TV, radio, ipod and video games.  Teach and model the value of reading.
    • Send them to bed on time.  A child in elementary school needs at least 8 hours sleep.  Look in on their room to make sure they are actually sleeping and not doing some other activity that can keep them awake.
    • Spend time in your child's claassroom.  Visit or Volunteer when you have a chance.  You'll be amazed at what you will see and learn.
