Chinese Immersion Program

South Fork Elementary is excited to have the Chinese Immersion Program!    Our kindergarten and first grade classes are currently full, if you would like your student to be placed on the waiting list, please contact the office.  Registration for 2018-2019 kindergarten classes will begin around the first of February of 2018.


Community Chinese Classes

Mr. Hsu, our 2nd grade Chinese teacher, is teaching community chinese language classes again.  This is for anyone who would like to learn the Mandarin Chinese language.  They will be held every Thursday from 5:30-6:20 in his classroom which is room 106.   Classes will not be held on Thanksgiving or during Christmas break.


New Swingsets!

Our new swingset is in and the kids are LOVING it!  Over $5,000.00 was raised in the last year by students, parents, and local businesses along with the PTO to make this happen!

We also need to thank Jeremy Madsen, Nick Shippen, and Spencer Pancheri for donating their time and coming over with their backhoes, digging the hole and filling it with the bark.  We could not have finished it without you! 


Quick note for parents!

Lunch – menus are available on the district webpage or you can pick up a hard copy in the office.  It is also posted on the bulletin board outside the office along with some announcements.  If you need to fill out a free/reduced form, please do this online.  The forms cannot be backdated, so any meals purchased before the form is filled out will be charged full price.

Transportation – our transportation department is working tirelessly to get the routes up and ready.  Please be patient with us the first few days of school as we do all we can do ensure your student gets to where they need to be.  If you have moved, make sure we have your correct address on file.  If you are needing your student dropped off at a different location than what we have on file, make sure you fill out a transportation deviation (found on the district website).  Those can take up to a week to take effect, so plan accordingly.  If you are making any permanent arrangements for picking up your student, please call the school or stop in the office so we can add you to our list.  Please remember that unless you are on our daily pick up list, or unless we hear from you by 2:00, your student WILL be placed on their scheduled school bus.  Students are not allowed to ride a different bus home without you first contacting transportation to make arrangements.  The safety of your child is our #1 priority!

Registration – please make sure you have filled out the returning student registration for your student – even if they have been assigned a teacher.  This is found by logging into your powerschool account, in the column on the left hand side.  This updates all your students information, permission forms, etc.  If you are unable to login to your powerschool account, please contact the office and we will help you out.  If you do not live in our boundaries and are not currently enrolled in the language immersion program, you MUST fill out the open enrollment form.

 

 

 

 

 


School is starting soon!

Hello Parents! August is upon us and that means that there is only a few more weeks until school starts and we are SO excited!

We just wanted to let you know of a few things….

The school supply lists for every grade can be found using the school supply list link on the left hand side of this page.

If you have a NEW student and haven’t registered them … please do so as soon as possible! Registration can be found on our district website at http://jeffersonsd251.org/ on the left hand side.  You must submit a proof of address (preferably a utility bill), your child’s birth certificate and current immunizations.  You can do this through the infosnap registration or bring them into the school anytime after August 21st.

If you have a RETURNING student and haven’t registered them … we need you to do this as soon as possible. You do this through powerschool: https://www.jsdparents.org/public/. If you are unable to login to powerschool, please let me know and I can help you with that.

The kindergarten boundary line is currently 300 North with students on the south side being in AM and the north side being in PM. There may be a few changes to the line due to enrollment, but we won’t have a definite line for a few more weeks when we get our final kindergarten numbers. Parents can log into PowerSchool using the information that was emailed to you to see your students classroom assignment.

School starts on August 30th! Stay tuned for more back to school information!
