Update from Principal Goss

Posted November 2, 2022

Dear Denver South Students and Families,

Thank you for attending trick-or-treat street this week. We had a great turnout this year! We look forward to continuing the tradition next year. 

Please come out and support our theater kids and production of The King in Yellow. The play will start next week. You can find details below to purchase tickets. 

Everyone is invited on November 10 at Space Annex from 6PM-9PM for our I AM DENVER SOUTH Community Fundraiser.  This event is an opportunity to visit with our teachers, bid on teacher experiences, connect with other South families and bid on community experiences. The event will include a paddle raise, dinner, wine pull and student entertainment.  Tickets are only $5, but are limited and going fast, so please download the Handbid App and Buy Tickets Here.

Our fundraising efforts this year will go toward teacher mini grants and help support Academics, Arts, Athletics and Activities as well as expanding Raven’s Landing into a Hall of Fame, a hallway which will be an extension of Raven’s Landing.

Have a great weekend.
