Next week is Green Ribbon, or Safety, Week.  
We have had a discussion with Mrs. Daly, the State Transportation team and the school district about a possible early start time on Fridays to help with the congestion and safety concerns for our elementary students walking past Riverton High. As of this post, no final decision has been made, but when it is the school will be sending home a letter to communicate the changes. 

If possible please walk with your kids, or have them walk in a group to school on September 19--our official "Walk to School Day." It's a great way to get your body and mind ready for a busy school day, and the PTO will have a reward for those who walk that day. We want our kids to be healthy, active and safe. 

We can always use help in the PTO. Thank you so much to the many of you who have already volunteered to help with being a room parent, in the class, or with a PTO program. We can't be truly successful without you. There will be a purple paper going home in the next few days with the positions we still need to fill. PLEASE read it and send it back if you can lend a hand.

Lastly, we are beginning to collect Box Tops, Tyson A + labels and Fresh Market receipts. Fresh Market receipts can be turned into the large clear box in the teacher's lounge, or at the courtesy desk at any Fresh Market. Please make sure they mark your receipt with Southland's name so we get the funds.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Katie Larsen or Shauna Eccles. 
Thanks for being part of our Southland community.
