Yesterday, the Louisiana statewide indoor mask mandate was extended for another four weeks, until October 27.

The statewide mask mandate includes K-12 schools, which means Southfield will continue to follow its current COVID-19 protocols until further notice! We will reevaluate our policies upon the next update from the governor. Stay safe, Eagles! 😷

Southfield preschool is getting ready for October and Halloween. With help from our parents and some creative art materials like milk jugs and styrofoam hats, these witches were assembled and hung from Mrs. Joffrion's ceiling! 🧙‍♀️

It's Buddy Reveal Day! Each year, the kindergarten and 4th-grade classes pair up to develop a lifelong friendship. Then, each class of buddies spends time and plays games together at least once a month. These friendships last well into middle school and high school and make this partnership one of the sweetest Southfield traditions! 🥰

Check out what the Cup Stacking Club was up to yesterday. 👏👏👏

DID YOU KNOW? Cup stacking (or speed stacking) is surprisingly an individual sport where kids all over the world compete to beat their best time. This fun and intense game “forces” the child to cross the midline with their hands as well as their eyes, which engages the right and left hemispheres of the brain needed for higher learning concepts.

Our P.E. Specialist, Amy Calhoun, explains that cup stacking can affect students' language skills, math sequences, and problem-solving as a result!

Attn Southfield families! Today we had an EXCITING Kickoff for our Southfield School Fun Run program! This year, we’re raising funds to renovate our Café, and we need your help!

The main vision is for the Café's aesthetic to reflect the amazing food that comes from the kitchen -- but we also want to take it a step further and give students a multi-purpose space that can be used for various events and STEAM-based activities. Check out the awesome renderings...

And, if you haven't already, be sure to register your student on MYBOOSTER.COM by searching for our school name. After that, please support us by sharing your student’s mybooster.com donation link with family and friends. All students who participate will receive their name on a commemorative plaque that will hang in the newly renovated Café!
