A Message from South's Principal - Maureen Henry

I, along with the South High School community, welcome you to our website.  I encourage you to use it as a resource throughout the school year.  Our building, which encompasses students from grades 7 through 12, focuses on bringing out the very best in each student both academically and through a variety of extra-curricular activities. I urge each student to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities there are to challenge themselves to reach new heights.  I am confident that as a school community we can accomplish much together this school year.
     
South High School is committed to a school environment that promotes personal growth, good citizenship and service to others.  South’s motto “small acts of kindness make a big difference” motivates all of the South community to share their time, talent and energy to provide service to others both here at South and in our community.  Wherever our students are – learning in the classroom, acting on the stage, or playing on the field – they are models of respect for all they come in contact with.  Our caring teachers are dedicated to providing all the help that each of their students requires to reach their potential.

I strongly promote the use of the extra help sessions that are provided on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  I hope that students and their parents participate in all of the activities whether it be sports, the performing arts, or the special events that happen at South High School throughout the year.  I encourage every student to challenge themselves to accomplish more this year both academically and by participation in community service activities!

I wish each of you a successful and exciting school year!

Valley Stream South High School hosted its first-ever Relay for Life event on May 20, successfully raising more than $50,000 for the American Cancer Society. Approximately 200 attendees and 25 teams came out to support this charitable event.

Relay for Life kicked off with an opening ceremony and special survivor dinner, which was followed by the first lap, dedicated to survivors, and a second one for caregivers.

School performances, entertainment, games and fundraising activities coordinated by students, staff members and other volunteers from the community were among the evening’s highlights, and a 9 p.m. Luminaria Ceremony remembered those who have been lost to cancer.

Luminaria bags dedicated In Honor, In Memory or In Support of loved ones created a brightly lit message of HOPE across South’s bleachers as participants walked and spent time together on the field.

Additionally, a Wall of Honor displayed photos of the individuals who inspired the Relay attendees.

South High Junior Serves as Town Official for a Day

South High Junior Stacey Charles participated along with nine other students from other Nassau High Schools in the Town of Hempstead’s annual “Students in Government Day” on May 23. Students are nominated by their schools and compete for the activity by writing an essay about issues facing local government. During the day Stacey shadowed the Town’s Director of Public Safety, Thomas D’Maria.  The culminating activity was a mock emergency management frill held in the Town’s command center wherein the Town was in the path of a major impending hurricane.  Stacey acted as the Director of Public Safety and had to make real time decisions regarding public safety concerns while interacting with other Town Departments. Upon her return to South, Stacy was excited about the experience which gave her a first-hand view of the demands on local government officials to protect and serve the community.
