At Middle School South, Student Council planned their annual 9/11 Remembrance Day. Each homeroom created a poster that was created to look like a quilt and presented to our local firemen and police. In addition, a large sheet cake was given to each department reading:  “Honoring America’s Finest – Our Vernon Hill’s Police Officers & Firemen.”
These items were presented to the departments by our Student Council President, Secretary and Treasurer.
We also asked all students to wear Red, White and Blue to show their Patriotic Spirit. Most homerooms had 100% participation.


Please see the attached letter from Superintendent Brown in regard to the Enterovirus 68.

Curriculum night will be Wednesday, September 17th from 7PM – 9PM for Parents and Guardians.


Each student was asked to reflect on three questions and write their answers down on a paper iPhone.  In addition, each homeroom took a class picture and along with their paper iPhones they assembled a banner which will be hung in the cafeteria.


Today, PTO information was distributed to students regarding PTO membership and purchasing Student Spirit Wear. Please check the PTO website for additional information.

Firefighter Tony and the Countryside Fire Protection District met with the 6th grade science classes on Friday, September 5.  They learned the importance of fire safety in the home and in school.  The 6th graders learned that it only takes a small amount of smoke to activate a smoke detector, about an average of 20 seconds.  The firefighters emphasized that calling 911 immediately, having an escape plan as well a family meeting place outside is very important.

On Friday, September 5th all homeroms participated in their first Advisory.  They started off with a human scavenger hunt.  Students were given sheets and were able to walk around the classroom and ask other students questions to get to know them better.  During this time they were also introduced to student of the week.  Each student will have an entire week to highlight themselves and bring in items or memorabilia that best describe them.

All 6th grade students will take part in an all-day field trip to Camp Henry Horner.  Permission slips are due by Friday, September 5th.  See attachment for details and permission forms.
