Dear South Parents/Students:
It is my pleasure and honor to join the Mt. Healthy South Elementary Team! I am a proud graduate of Mt. Healthy City Schools and I am excited to be the Principal in my home school district. I am thrilled to announce we have a new Administrative staff who will be an excellent asset to South Elementary. We have been busy these last few weeks hiring new teachers who are passionate about working with our students and who love teaching. The PTO and the staff is planning a grand celebration to welcome our awesome students back to school. We are looking forward to an energized, exciting and fun school year for our children with the strong focus on student achievement. We are expecting our students to be ready to work hard and give their best everyday starting day 1, Thursday, August 17th the first day of school.
We are prepared to welcome every student to South with open arms, to a positive and nurturing environment which sets the tone for standard base teaching and engaged learning for teachers and students in a safe place every day!
We will implement this school year the Positive School Intervention and Supports (PBIS) program that creates a positive, safe and thriving school environment. Staff will be the role models and will teach daily our schoolwide expectations. Students will have many opportunities to earn rewards, and understand self-control under the PBIS program. Therefore, it will be understood by all stakeholders that teaching and learning in a safe school environment is our priority at SOUTH!
We are excited to announce we will offer an extra-curricular afterschool program that will include many clubs and sporting activities. We need parents to volunteer and support our afterschool programming. Please look for information in the future about volunteer opportunities to support our students.
I look forward to meeting everyone at the Welcome Back to School Carnival on Tuesday, August 15th 4pm – 7pm and on the first day of school, Thursday, August 17th!
Please memorize our schoolwide expectations as we get ready for a most successful school year at SOUTH!
I AM SAFE I AM KIND I AM RESPONSIBLE
Yzvetta L. Macon, Principal
