First graders learned how to make soft sounds louder using stethoscopes. They were then inspired to create and test their own using donated supplies from Alley T and The Commission on Aging. We are so thankful for our supportive community!

Dear South Families, The South Elementary staff would like to express our sincere thanks for all of the support that our South familes and community have generously shown to us in the loss of Mrs. Hessbrook's son Brady. The treats, the lunches, the messages, the flowers and all of the other supportive gestures have been noted and sincerely appreciated. The support for Mrs. Hessbrook and her class has been overwhelming and also much appreciated. For all that is being done for our school, we say "Thank You". There will not be school on Friday, Feb 3, 2023. This will allow Ithaca Public School staff the opportunity to attend the service for Brady and support the Hessbrook family. South Elementary
