South Park Mission Statement
At South Park Middle School, education is a continuous transitional experience, which promotes positive intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth. Students are encouraged to maximize individual potential to function in a diverse society.
Please remember that you are always welcome at South Park. We want you to take an active role in your child's education. Your involvement in your child’s academics as well as extra-curricular activities will result in their success. If you ever have any questions regarding your child, please call 920-424-0431 to be directed to the appropriate staff member. We are here to help you and your child.
Progress reports will be posted at weeks 5,10, and 15 of the semester. An email will be sent to tell you the grades have been posted since the district has gone paperless. Just as grades are dependent on the requirements in the classroom, progress report marks are too. If you have any questions about the progress of your child, please contact the teacher.
INFINITE CAMPUS MESSENGER
One of the benefits of our student information system, Infinite Campus, is the messenger program. Through the Parent Portal you have the option to set up your account to receive messages in your Portal Inbox, via E-mail, Voice and/or Text. In order to save paper we will be emailing the link to the South Park Newsletter with a target date of the first of every month. Please check to see that your current email is listed in your contact information on the Portal. There may be times when we send out a message via phone or text as well, so it is important that we have current contact information in our system.
Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences will be held on November 14th & 19th from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. These conferences will be open for any parent to come and see their child's teachers. Your presence is important because it is an opportunity to establish a relationship with the teacher and discuss the progress of your child. It is strongly recommended that your child attend the conferences with you so that you, your child, and the teacher/s can work as a team to help ensure your child’s success.
Conferences will be located in the teacher's classrooms. You are encouraged to see all of your children’s teachers during your stay. We ask that you keep your visit with a teacher to approximately five minutes so that all parents get a chance to see that teacher. We look forward to seeing you at conferences.
VETERANS DAY ASSEMBLY
South Park Middle School will be holding their annual Veterans Day Assembly on November 11th at 10:30 am in the school gymnasium. The assembly will include a color guard presentation, musical performances, student involvement with readings, and the playing of Taps. This year we will also have several trucks from Oshkosh Corporation on display. There will also be a speaker who will share their experiences with the student body. The public is encouraged to attend and a social will be offered afterwards. Please feel free to tell relatives, friends, and neighbors to attend. All are welcome.

WHAT IS A “TEAM MEETING”?
A “Team Meeting” is a grade level teacher team that meets weekly to discuss students, curriculum, and to plan grade level activities. If you ever need to meet with your child’s teachers in person or on the phone, this team time would be a perfect opportunity to speak to several of your children’s core teachers all at once. Just contact the school counselor or the teachers to arrange a meeting or phone conference. Teams meet Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as follows:
6th Gr. Team meets at 12:59 – 1:49 p.m.
7th Gr. Team meets at 11:20–12:10 p.m.
8th Gr. Team meets at 10:26-11:16 a.m.
