Raising Leaders; Touching Lives
Southgate Elementary School has a philosophy and programs purposefully designed to meet the needs of students transitioning into adolescents. We believe that all students should be exposed to comprehensive academic curriculum, guided by state and district standards .
All students participate in a rigorous academic program which maintains, reinforces and expands academic skills so all students can become productive, responsible, and compassionate citizens in our ever-changing community.
Home Reading Program
Our Home Reading Program will begin October 1st! Remind your students to read every night! (At least, 15 minutes for grades K through 3 and 20 minutes for grades 4 through 6 for 25 days or more each month.)
Students who reach their goal each month will earn a Pizza Certificate for a Personal Pan Pizza at Pizza Hut.
Students benefit in many ways when they participate in the Home Reading Program. Not only from all the above awards but they become better readers, more confident in their reading, learn to enjoy reading and gain more knowledge in the process.
If you can volunteer any time to help with the Home Reading Program (just once a month or at the book fair), please call the office at 723-3905 and ask for Mrs. Louie.
Let’s help our students to become super readers this year! Thank you for your support
Homework can provide many benefits for children. It can improve memory and comprehension, develop study skills, and teach children how to manage time. You can help by making sure your kids have a quiet, well-lit place to do homework and provide assistance, but not complete answers. Learn how to help your kids with homework and succeed in school.
Plan Healthy Breakfasts and Lunches
As you prepare to send your children back to school, remember that nutrition is an important factor in academic performance. Studies have shown that children who eat healthful, balanced breakfasts and lunches are more alert throughout the school day and earn higher grades than those who have an unhealthy diet. Get tips on healthy eating.

Box Tops for Education
The money earned from Box Tops for Education will go a long way in funding student field trips through-out the year. The Box Tops for Education Program, rewards parents, students and teachers for purchasing day to day products at your local grocery stores. These companies reward your loyalty by donating funds back to your child’s school.
On the top of many grocery products you’ll find a pink Box Top. Examples of products that have this logo are: Cereal, Kleenex, Ziploc, Granola Bars, Pillsbury Products, etc. If you cut out the Box Top and send it to school with your child we get 10 cents for every one! Make sure you cut them out along the dotted lines. Please do not cut off the expiration date.
The class that brings in the most Box Tops by the end of the year earns an ICE CREAM PARTY!! So let’s get collecting! Any questions please see Mrs. Lopez.
The little actions you take every day add up, helping kids grow to be confident and responsible.
