2016-17 Student Schedules
The 2016-17 student schedules will be available via the student/parent portal in mid-August. Currently, the IT Department is in the process of rolling over data and we are working diligently to perfect the schedules prior to their release. The full administrative staff will be available beginning August 10, 2016 with the guidance staff returning August 15, 2016. Those folks will be able to address your questions at that time.
New School Logo
A New School Logo design was chosen in a contest that was held in the fall of 2015. Makayla Maule, 7th graders at Southern Middle School was named the winner in the school's contest. The contest to design a new logo was sponsored by the school and was open to students in all three grades, 6th, 7th, and 8th. Makayla's winning design is pictured below. She was presented with a check for $100 as a prize and her logo is now being used on the school's letterhead, the backdrop for the daily morning news broadcasts as well as all new school T-shirts. Makayl a is the daughter of Jeffrey and Angela Maule in Mountain Lake Park. Makayla and her design was featured in the Republican Newspaper later in the year as seen in the above scrolling pictures.
