P.U.S.H.(Parents United for South High)

What it is, What it does

PUSH is the official parent and community organization for the school. The mission of PUSH is to encourage communication: between parents, parents to school, and school to parents. Our goal is to create ways for every family and student to have a social connection to the school community and feel a valued member and participant within it.

Come to our first meeting, and become a part of PUSH!

Topic: Meet South’s New Principal Ray Aponte

Monday, September 15

6:30-8 PM (Dinner served at 6 pm)

South High Media Center – 2nd Floor

P.U.S.H Needs Your Involvement and Leadership This Fall!

Connecting and working together as parents is a good way to support our students and the school. PUSH needs parent leadership for the 2014-2015 school year, and we invite you to get involved. Meetings are in the South High Media Center on the second Monday of each month, with a light dinner at 6 pm followed by the meeting at 6:30 pm.

PUSH is an important resource and a powerful way for parents to connect with other parents, school administration and the school community as a whole. PUSH is much more than a booster club for South—our mission is to support communication between home and school; to encourage parents/guardians to be involved at South; to educate ourselves on topics of interest as parents; and to create ways for every family and student to have a social connection to the school community and feel a valued member and participant within it!

Parent Mentors Fall 2014 (Help an incoming freshman parent get connected to South High)

Do you remember what it was like the first year your child started high school? Would you like to share your experiences and techniques to navigating the school, administration, programs and culture? If so, we are in need of parents who are interested in volunteering some of their time to be a parent mentor for incoming 9th grade parents to share what you’ve learned. Your total commitment would be approximately 2-4 hours during the first few months of school-September thru December.

Come to our next meeting on Monday, September 15 at 6:00 p.m. in South High’s Media Center
