South Row Announcements
Inclusive Schools Week… During the week of December 2nd-6th South Row will be participating in “Inclusive Schools Week.” The purpose of inclusive schools week is to promote inclusiveness and acceptance for all in our amazing school community. This week will also encourage us to appreciate our similarities and differences and celebrate diversity. Throughout the week, as part of morning announcements, students will hear a quote of the day and a challenge and/or ideas on how they can support inclusiveness in our building. Monday's grade level meeting will include a story and activities focused on being inclusive and celebrating differences. During the week, all students will design a “hand” pledging to promote inclusiveness and the hands will be displayed in our building. Students will also participate in activities in their classroom to promote the message of this important week. As a culminating activity, on Thursday (12/5) we will have an “Orange School Spirit Day” to celebrate and support this important week. By wearing orange we are pledging to always support, Open access, Respecting others, Assume ability, Nix labels, Get included, and Embrace differences. We are looking forward to a positive week!

Holiday Shop at South Row… This year, the South Row holiday shop will take place on Wednesday December 11th, Thursday December 12th and Friday December 13th. The South Row Holiday shop is a wonderful and annual event that is held over a 3 day period at the South Row School in the Hallway of the main entrance.
The Holiday Shop consists of seven different Shopping Stations they are:
- Mother’s and Grand Mother’s Table
- Father’s and Grand Father’s Table
- Sister’s Table
- Brother’s Table
- Pet’s Table
- Photo Table
- Thump Print Table
These different stations are stocked up by wonderful items either donated or made by parents and each Station has a chair to oversee it. We have 20 classes at South Row so we try to have at least 25 items /class/ station to make sure everyone has the same opportunity to shop.
On the days assigned for the Holiday Shop, there will be a schedule of when each class will be able to come and shop. The Schedule in addition to Shopping envelopes will come home with your child. The children can shop for their family members and they get to take the products home and wrap it (Except Photo’s and their frames which we try to deliver the next day). The items sold at the shop DO NOT EXCEED $3.00.
