Parent Action Team
South has a Parent Action Team (PAT) which serves our school like a Parent
Teacher Organization. All the efforts of PAT are aimed at providing extra financial
support to our school which in turn goes directly to the student body. In the past
PAT has provided theatrical presentations, PE equipment, AR rewards, class
picnics, Field Day, and other activities for South.
In the fall, PAT sponsors a Yankee Candle Fundraiser. It, also, supports
Open House, grade level and chorus performances, Math Reading Night, and
Parents and community members are encouraged to collect Box Tops for
Education which helps PAT earn cash for our school. The class who collects the
most Box Tops each month is rewarded with ice cream from our cafeteria.
PAT has registered South Elementary in the Martinís A+ Rewards program.
South earns cash each time one shops at Martinís using your bonus card between
October and March. Participation is easy and our school earns 1% credit of the
total purchases. Parents and community members are encouraged to sign up for
this program at Martinís website.

South also participates in the Amerigas "School Days Program". Parents turn in their receipts and our school earns $.02 per receipt.

provides as she coordinates the fall fundraiser and many of the PAT activities! She
certainly is dedicated community member.
