Good afternoon, South Shore.

Thanks to everyone who came out for Pi Night–it was a great turn out and a fun event. Thanks also to our amazing math coaches, Mx. Malmgren and Ms. Mizuta, and the support of our PTSA and Title 1 funds for making it happen!  Wednesday our middle school leadership students hosted a celebratory and informative Black History assembly–great job everyone. 

Students got their class pictures taken today. Complimentary copies will be given to each student later in the spring.
