The students at South Middle School who participate in the after school program would like to extend their thanks to Emily Jasenski, owner of Elements Yoga Studio in Greenville, for giving her time to teach them some basic yoga. We would also like to thank Don Addis, Tod and Joanie Drew, Mike Barker, Marlisa McAllister, Mike Jones, Eileen Litchfield, Marco's Pizza South Middle School PTA and teachers for their donations and financial support.

South Middle School's Ladies and Gentleman's Club visited the Brethren's home for reverse trick or treating. Our students adopt a "grandparent" for their years at South and once a month walk over to visit with them. Together they have done wii bowling, card club and board games, then a quick snack before going home. It is a wonderful way for our students to give back to the community.


Greenville's Academic team recently won five games at The Ohio State University Competition and three at the Tipp City Invitational. Adam Chatwood distinguished himself in the area of mathematics and Ben Scott, this year’s team captain, was recognized for earning the Sportsmanship Award at Tipp City. Scott also had the sixth highest score among more than one hundred competitors in Columbus

The Academic Team will be featured on Channel 7’s High-Q on Sunday, November 15th at 8:30 a. m. in a competition against Northeastern High School. This year’s team includes Ben Scott, Adam Chatwood, Nick Sander, and Kent Holmes. Carlton Bowers serves as the team advisor.

Greenville Fire Department came to eat lunch with our students who's names were drawn from out Caught Being Good tickets! South Middle School students are rewarded for their good behavior around school. They were treated to lunch and a tour of the fire truck.

Thank you Greenville Fire Department!

Greenville High School Theatre Club

Greenville High School Theatre Club is currently in rehearsal for their fall production. This year they have an exciting murder mystery to share with the public, entitled: “This Isn’t A Murder Mystery, It’s A Massacre!” This highly comical play was written by one of their own actors, Kent Holmes, a junior at GHS who writes and produces his own films. Kent is also a GHS tennis player and soccer player, and a member of Men’s Choir and Key Club, to name a few of his many activities.

“This Isn’t A Murder Mystery” is a Monty Python meets Agatha Christie type of play. There are many characters, most of them likeable, and a plot with enough twists and turns to make Sherlock Holmes dizzy. Set in the 1940’s, during WWII, the plot brings us to the office of two private eyes: Sam Donsile and Jack Snips. Their clients are in for a lot more intrigue than they realized, once they set foot in the foyer. But with your help, the mystery will be solved! The club invites you to join them for this farcical romp, presented November 20th and 21st, at 7:00 pm in Celebration Theatre at GHS. Tickets will be available at the door for $5.00.

GHS Theatre Club boasts 40 members, every one of them a star. They rehearse, build, write, and perform four plays every year: the fall production, a contest piece for Area and State Conferences, the spring production which will take place at Memorial Hall once again this year, and the children’s performance offered to all area elementary students. Club advisers this year are: Cheryl Collins, Tory Martin, and Chris Phillips. Additional info on the troupe can be found on facebook.
