Dear T.F. South Family,
It’s hard to believe we are starting the second quarter already. School spirit is definitely on the rise as we celebrated Homecoming with a parade for the first time in more than a decade, and had a record 998 tickets sold for our Homecoming Dance. We were excited to welcome State Representative Marcus Evans, Mayor Patty Eidam, Superintendent Dr. Williams, and Board President Richard Dust to a ceremony naming our football stadium “Padjen Field” in honor of Tom Padjen and the Padjen family’s record of continuous participation for the last 59 seasons either as players or coaches.
Is your student in need of extra tutoring or assistance with homework? Students who need academic support are encouraged to attend our Homework Center in the LRC on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. We even provide bus transportation home afterward.
Our Drama club will be collecting canned goods for their annual “Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat” drive October 23-30 and would like to invite you to our Fall Musical, "The Drowsy Chaperon" on November 2, 3, and 4 at 7:00 p.m. and/or November 5 at 2:00 p.m.
Our students have done a wonderful job collecting donations to assist victims of recent disasters in Florida, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. When others are faced with crisis, it is always reassuring to know how quickly our instinctual response is to aid those in need. I'm very proud of the students at T.F. South for reaching out to help those who they may not know personally, but who they care about as fellow human beings.
Thanks for all you do to support and uplift your student, his/her teachers, our school, and our community.
