Dear Parents:

It's hard to believe there is no snow on the ground at this time of the year. As soon as the ground dries out and the temperatures go up, we will be playing outside as much as possible. We don't want our students shivering and/or the students and school covered in mud!
This coming Thursday evening, April 13, 7:00 PM, at the Southview SDA Church, will be an information meeting with Stacy Stocks, principal of Maplewood Academy, about the possibility of having 11th grade through Connected Learning with Maplewood Academy. 
Special Thanks to: Joy McIver, Iliana Buckholdt, Rogelio Garcia, Cheryl Saunders, and Pastor Arevelo for helping with Music Festival this year!
