Happy New Year!!!!!!
I would like to wish all of you a prosperous 2015 filled with joy and love. I pray that you all experience good health and fortune in the new year.
January 16th marks the mid-year point for the academic calendar. We will be attacking the second half of the school year with the same effort and enthusiasm as we did during the first half - if not, with even more zest and focus.
We recognize the importance of the state’s end-of-the-year testing. As a result, Southgate, once again, will be embarking on Test Prep Fridays. Test Prep Fridays will begin February 13th and continue through May 8th. On test Prep Fridays third through sixth teacher will dedicate 45 minutes of instructional time to teaching test preparation strategies and familiarizing their students with the types of questions that will be presented on the state examination. This is a critical time for your child to receive key infor-mation that will increase your students’ ability to perform well on this important assessment. Please ensure that your student is present at school on Fridays moving forward, as Southgate strives to be the highest performing school within the Hay-ward Unified School District.

Mission Statement

In a caring culture of success, the Southgate community motivates, inspires, develops skills, and builds confidence to awaken the highest potential in every member.

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.

Homework Help

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.

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.
