Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year!

Our Elementary South family has been very busy preparing for the best school year yet. We hope that your children are rejuvenated, ready to work hard, play hard, and learn and grow.  We are so excited about this year’s Bernstein Unit on Empathy.  This unit will remind us to value and respect each individual’s similarities and differences and will emphasize the importance of having empathy for others.  We will explore what it feels like to “take a walk in someone else’s shoes” and talk about how we can be the change we want to see in the world.  This year’s masterwork by the famous graffiti artist, Ketih Haring, depicts these key concepts.  So get ready to for the journey of a lifetime.
