GSA South Weekly Reminder

Dear gator parent/guardians,

Below are your reminders for the upcoming week.  To access previous reminders or forms please utilize the School Notification link.  If you have any questions, contact the main office at 314-669-9000 or email info@gsasouth.org.

  • Haven’t Re-Enrolled for the 2021 School Year? By not doing so, you are asking GSA South to release your child’s spot for a lottery position.  You have until January 29th to use the gsastl.org/reenroll link to apply.  A lottery will be held on Saturday, February 6th to fill all open slots and students who do not receive a lottery pick will be placed on a waiting list.  We strongly encourage all students who plan to return to GSA South to complete a re-enrollment form.   

  • New Student Enrollment ends on February 4th.  Anyone interested in applying, including siblings (who have preference) of currently enrolled students, may access an electronic application through the gsasouth.org website on the scrolling images.  On February 6th, a lottery will be held to determine acceptance of the 2021-2022 school year. You may use the GSA South Elementary Flyer link to access an advertisement that shows how awesome of a place GSA South is. 

  • Virtual STEM Night is scheduled for Wednesday, January 27th from 6:00-7:30 PM.  Join us at gsastemnight.weebly.com and come ready to learn, create and zoom! 

  • 100th Day of School is Monday, January 25th and we are asking all GSA students to help celebrate by dressing as someone who is 100 years old.

  • Thank You for Choosing GSA South!  We encourage all students to celebrate School Choice week from January 24th-30th by participating in the week long fun and festivities.  There will be attendance drawings and dress down themes throughout the week. 

  • Updated Calendar of Events for second semester is accessible via the 2020-2021 Updated Calendar of Events link.

  • PTO Wants Your Feedback!  We want to thank you because GSA South was able to raise $1422.40 from the fall fundraiser and PTO was in a position to donate $4000 to Gator Families during the 2020 Giving Tree.  Members are looking for feedback about our first ever virtual fundraiser.  Please use the https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RHNY8Y5 link to share your thoughts by Friday, January 29.  

  • Picture Day Retakes are scheduled for Monday, February 22 for all students.  You may also order pictures online at mylifetouch.com and use the ID:  EVTHBRRRM.  

    • This will be the only time this school year for students to have pictures taken and those who are retaking pictures do not have to be in uniform.

  • Congratulations to our Great Gators of the Week We are so excited to recognize the students who excel at being Respectful, Responsible and Safe.  Any student who is recognized this week will have an email sent to the primary parent/guardian with a certificate and directions on how to submit a photo that will go on the school’s Facebook page.  There will also be a link that will provide an option to reserve a time to pick up a congratulatory gift from Mrs. Gilliam, the building principal, for virtual students.  All other students may pick up their gift from the main office upon their return to school.  

  • Breakfast & Lunch Is Free for GSA students and community members ages 3-18.  Pickup will continue to be at GSA South on Mondays.
