Hello, this is Mr. Reusch, Principal of South Middle School.  We hope everyone is having a restful summer.  There are 2 important reminders we have for you:


#1 This will be our 1st year for our new uniform policy.  The policy is on our website and we have hard copies at our front desk.  Please read the policy carefully because there are very specific items that address things like no emblems etc.  We anticipate families going out on their own to buy these items either locally or on line.  On our website you will see some local options as we have scouted them out for you.  Our school has purchased some items just in case you need to buy from us. 


#2 Our summer book is A Wrinkle in Time.  It is an expectation that students read this book before school starts.  They are on sale here at school for $5.  


Throughout the summer, someone from South Middle School will be available to assist you with either buying the book or answering questions about the uniform.  Because there are only a few staff working, on the door you will find instructions on how to find someone in the school. 


We are looking forward to seeing everyone soon.  Have a great summer!

The book for this year's summer readon program is A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle.
