The Mile Challenge is our last major fundraiser of the year. It’s not only a great way to support our school, but also a way for the students to challenge themselves physically. During each PE class throughout the day, students will be attempting to run their fastest mile ever. We welcome you to come out during your child’s PE period and cheer them on. Our goal is for each student to try to raise at least $50 (which will allow them to enter into raffles for some great prizes. We welcome any amount possible of course, and urge you to participate! Donations are entirely voluntary. Please also consider whether your employers will match your donations. Thank you!
Every year, PTSA holds the Reflections Arts program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. This year's theme was "What Is Your Story?" Congratulations to all the winners and students who participated. View all of the Reflections submissions, including Rachel K.'s entry at left, on the South Lake PTSA website by clicking here.
Dean Chemerinsky Speaks to 8th Graders
Dean Chemerinsky, the founding Dean and Distinguished Professor of the UCI School of Law, spoke to all 8th graders on January 24th about Constitutional law and answered student questions. He has been named as one of the 10 most influential lawyers in California and one of the top legal thinkers in America. Our students were extremely fortunate to have had this opportunity to learn about the importance of the Constitution and how it applies to contemporary issues.
