The first day of school for South Lake students is August 29 at the school’s temporary location on Washington Grove Lane. Enrollment for the fall hovers at about 800. Construction of South Lake’s new facility on Contour Lane continues on schedule for a 2023 opening.
In the meantime, 300 students from rising Kindergartners through Grade 5 attended the school’s 5-week Title 1 Summer School program from 9:30-2:00 at Washington Grove. Students not attending had a chance to participate in the Summer Learning Challenge. The first-place winner in reading and math at each grade level received a trophy.
Temple Beth Ami’s Tikkun Olam committee delivered over 150 backpacks filled with school supplies prior to opening day. Again, the Community of Action will be sponsoring an after-school art club on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:00. Persons interested in volunteering (no experience or expertise required) should contact Susan Stern or Sue Fox.
