Good evening, this is Dr. Burnham, Principal of Southern Middle School, with a quick reminder about Meet the Teacher Night.
We will be hosting our Meet the Teacher Night on Thursday, September 14th from 6:30 pm. until 8:30 pm. When you arrive, please report directly to your child’s homeroom. The homeroom teacher has your child’s schedule that you will be following for the rest of the night. Throughout the night you will have an opportunity to visit each of your child’s classes for about 10 minutes. This is a parent only event and an opportunity for parents to meet teachers.
For the first time, we will be offering child care. If you would like to drop off your younger children (5th grade and younger), please contact the office at 610-670-0180 extension 1410 or 1411 to sign up for this service. Sign-ups will end on Wednesday, September 13th.
PTO will be selling spirit wear that you can purchase shirts for $10 and shorts for $15. High school students from Future Business Leaders of America will be selling Hershey’s chocolate hugs and kisses for $1.00 that will be given to your child in Homeroom.
Thank you and have a great night.

Lots of information for you!
For new students and parents of Southern, we have a great deal of information that may be helpful to you. Check out the Important Forms and Documents link for things you may need throughout the year. We also have video tours of the building that are available under the About Us tab at the top of the web page. The homework hotline link under Quick Links will list all of the assignments that students need to complete for their classes, and you can find useful links for all classes on the Resource Room website.
One of our school goals is to create a home and school partnerships which enhance our students' educational success. We believe that communication is an important part of creating this partnership. Mrs. Stoudt (our Director of Assessment, Data, & Analysis) has created a survey which will be used for a doctoral class to determine the best means to communicate to parents/guardians. Below is a link to a very brief communication survey. Your feedback will be used to assist us in planning more effective family and school communications. Thank you in advance for your input. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r
