Welcome to Southern Elementary
Great Things Are Happening!
Southern Elementary School is a state-of-the-art facility that opened in August of 2001. We serve approximately 900 students in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Our school is located outside of three of New Castle County’s oldest cities, New Castle, St. Georges and Delaware City. Our students feed from the New Castle, Bear, Delaware City, St. Georges, and Middletown neighborhoods.
The book fair will be October 17-21. Students will attend the book fair during technology class.
Next week, October 10-14 will be spirit week to help us prepare for the book fair and William Penn’s Homecoming.

For the 2016/2017 school year, yearbooks will only be sold online. We will not have any yearbooks available to purchase in school. So please order your yearbook online now!
“Pinwheels for Peace” is a project to recognize the International Day of Peace, September 21st.
This year over 6 million school children all around the world have participated in an art installation to share thoughts of peace.
At Southern Elementary, about 1000 Pinwheels are planted in the front garden.
Imagine “Whirled” Peace!
