Dear South Central Elementary Families,
For the past several years, South Central has partnered with the LaPorte YMCA to offer after-school care for our students. Starting in the 2022-2023 school year, the YMCA will no longer offer after-school care for our students.
Little Dreamers, located at 7407 W. US-30 in Wanatah, has space available for South Central Elementary students who need after-school care. If you utilize Little Dreamers for after-school care, your child will be able to ride the bus from South Central to Little Dreamers on a daily basis. All the details of the program including the cost should be discussed with Sandra Wood, owner of Little Dreamers. The phone number for Little Dreamers is (219) 733-2800. We are very grateful for Sandra and her willingness to host our students for after-school care. If your child will be attending after-school care at Little Dreamers, you will need to let the elementary office know the days your child will be riding the bus to Little Dreamers.
I hope you are all having a great summer!
Nick Kimmel, Elementary Principal
The Northwest Health Sports Medicine Program will be offering sports physicals at South Central on June 21st from 5:30pm to 8:00pm in the south gym. There is no cost (donations accepted) for the physicals and they are available to students ages 5-18. See the flyer for more information.
South Central Elementary School, through its penny war fundraiser, raised $7,262.70 for Riley Hospital for Children!
The penny war fundraiser was sponsored by Junior Council members and was held during the month of February. South Central Elementary (and the Corporation) will now be designated as a "Red Wagon School/Corporation" for their fundraising efforts! Additionally, a Red Riley Wagon with a customized South Central license plate will be used at Riley Hospital as transportation for many patients.
We at South Central Elementary envision all of our students performing at or above grade level.
South Central Elementary will provide a safe, caring, positive learning environment with a solid academic foundation focusing on reading and math. South Central, family, and community will collaborate to prepare students with the life skills needed to be successful lifelong learners in an ever-changing society.
