Future Panther Night 2024

2/16/2024: Future Panther Night was a roaring success! Our gym was packed with incoming 9th graders and their families, and our staff and current students had a great time meeting everyone!

If you weren't able to join us, there are still opportunities for your student to get acquainted with South! Check out the FreshStart and Panther Camp links in the left menu for more details!

If your student didn't receive an invitation postcard in the mail, or if you did not receive the save the date and reminder emails, your contact information may need to be updated. Please reach out to your student's middle school to update contact information so you don't miss anything coming up!

Are YOU becoming a Panther in 2024??
