Principal's Message

Welcome to South Elementary School of Communications! We are looking forward to a great year ahead! At South Elementary, our staff strives toward meeting the individual needs to each student to help students achieve success. We work towards academic success and building character while providing a safe and friendly learning environment. We implement various communications projects during the year to provide opportunities for students to engage in various types of communications that students can use in the lives and future. Students have the opportunity to be a part of SES Rewind, our daily student news that airs on YouTube. We are a team that wants success for each individual. We work together to strive for this goal each day. Our staff is excited to get to know and work with the families to provide the best opportunities for students. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Go Dolphins!
