Earth Day

Earth day takes place in April and our committee works each year to put on educational activities for the students.  Contact our Green Team committee chair, Christy Molenkamp if you’re interested in helping with this event.

Book Fair

Our Book Fairs are scheduled for Fall & Spring to help fundraise for our school library!  Discounted books and magazines are available, along with teacher “wish-lists”, and proceeds provide much-needed resources for the library.  We’re always looking for volunteers to help run our book fair, so please reach out if interested in helping!

Student of the Month

Each month teachers select two students from their class who not only follow our school rules of Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Responsible, but also go above and beyond in the areas of scholarly behavior in the classroom and on the playground. This committee puts together the rewards presented at our monthly Pride Assembly to honor these students.


South O Elementary is home to 4 distinctive gardens to help students learn concepts relating to stewardship, nutrition, and scientific discovery.  We’re always looking for donations and help in our garden area. Please reach out if you’re interested in helping!
