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!
