Update from Principal Goss

Dear Denver South Students and Families,

We hope you had a great week. Just a few reminders going into the three day weekend.  There is no school on Monday in observance of Labor Day. Our second day of pictures will continue on Tuesday. 

Next week we will host our Back to school night on September 8th. Families are invited to our meet and greet between 5-7pm. We will also offer a hybrid model to those that may not be able to attend. During this time,  Students will be giving tours of the building to families. 

Have a great three day weekend.

Activities at South 

We’re going to Japan in June 2023, and you’re invited!

We’re excited to tell you more about the trip we’re planning with EF Tours, our educational travel partner. Please be sure to register for this info session to be considered for this opportunity:  https://bit.ly/3q74S97 

When students travel, they expand their knowledge of the world around them, discover more about themselves, and grow more confident. These skills are critical for creating the global citizens of tomorrow, and we would love to have your student join us on this adventure.

The Parent Interest Session will be on Sept 21st at 5:30 pm in Room 303. 

In this info session, we’ll talk about:

How this opportunity will benefit your child

What we’ll see and do on our trip

Everything that’s included in this experience

How your child can earn academic credit

How we’re keeping this safe and affordable

How to enroll on this trip (before it fills up!) during EF’s risk-free enrollment period

Registration for the info session is mandatory, and a parent or guardian must attend. (Can’t make it? Choose “No, but send info” so you don’t miss out.) Register here: https://bit.ly/3q74S97 

Can’t wait to see you there!

Celebrations from the Counseling Team:

Congratulations to Nathalie Arrua, Maxwell Benedict, Elizabeth Pozzi, and Connor Willhoit, who received the National Hispanic Recognition Award from College Board.  They are among the 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs! These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board’s Student Search Service.  These amazing students earned this recognition by excelling on their PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in their classrooms. Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year, and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.  CONGRATULATIONS!
