Welcome to the SEHS Parent Council.  Parent council represents parents and by default, students.  All parents and guardians of South students are automatically members of the council and we encourage you to attend regular meetings on the first Monday of each month, at 6:00 P.M. in the Library.   Come out and meet other parents of students at South. It’s a great way to get connected! Here are a few of the things we do:

  • Meetings provide a place for parents to get answers to questions about school policy, student education at South, physical & mental health and other things that affect your student’s ability to navigate high school and the path beyond.  The Principal also attends each meeting and gives us all the “inside scoop” about what’s going on!
  • Work to provide parents with timely and useful college and career readiness information related to what is happening both at South and around the nation.
  • Pay for and staff the weekly eNEWS that comes to you via email.
  • Organize and present a series of parent and community education nights.
  • Work to enrich the environment for students at South through volunteering and raising money to support programs and teachers.

Above all … Welcome to South                                    

By working together we can make this your student’s best year yet

Contacts and Positions

Parent Council requires a core of officers and active members to help put on events, such as educational evenings, staff appreciation events, fundraisers and to serve as a liaison between South’s staff and administration and parents. Each month, a meeting agenda is created and posted on eNews so that everyone knows what will be discussed at that month’s meeting. If you would like to add an agenda item please contact Parent Council Chair Jen Doerr  brad.jend@gmail.com. Below you’ll find a list of members of the committee, open positions and contact information.
