As you know, Lake Forest South is always “on track for success!” Our destination is to move our children to above proficiency. Our staff is prepared to provide your child with an education committed to academic excellence. Together with our families and the community, the staff and students of South work toward clearly focused educational, personal, and social goals. Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in the school. When parents attend school functions, they demonstrate to their children that they value school and education. Attending events such as Meet and Greet, Open House, parent/teacher conferences, curriculum nights, and coming to PTA meetings are all important ways that parents learn about their child’s education.
The PTA works tirelessly to support our school in countless ways, including financial support through fundraising, providing enrichment activities such as educational assemblies and field trip opportunities, sponsoring community events like our holiday shop and movie nights. Please support our PTA by becoming a member and attending meetings regularly.
Parents are informed about school policies, procedures, academics, and events through a variety of channels. The packet which goes home with the students on the first day of school contains information about school and district rules and procedures, behavior expectations, the school calendar, and other essential information. During the year parents stay informed through classroom notices, the school newsletter, announcements on our school and district web site, the South App, and the Alert Now phone system.
As the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am very proud to say that at Lake Forest South, we are a village of staff and parents that work together to support all our children. Lake Forest South Elementary School is proud to be a part of the Lake Forest School District which is “your best choice” in education.
