Time to Get Acquainted

Teachers and staff were so excited to see incoming students at Elementary South’s “Get Acquainted Time” event for kindergarten through fifth graders on Tuesday. Parents and students met teachers, visited their classrooms and dropped off supplies. While it was rainy outside, the classrooms were bright and cheerful.

Big Trucks

The Village of Vernon Hills Public Works Department came by on May 24 with some big trucks. Elementary South’s first-grade students learned about backhoes, bucket trucks, salt trucks and front end loaders thanks to the friendly Public Works staff.

Making Mothers’ Day Gifts

First graders at Elementary South will have sweet gifts for their mothers on Mothers’ Day. Home Depot came by with flowers and supplies, which they have donated for several years in a row. The children particularly had fun drawing creative designs on their pots. Every gift was an original.
