Welcome to Southgate Elementary! Located in the SW area of Austin, we are the proud home of 460 Southgate Gators! Our district mission is: Empowering and Engaging All Learners For Life. Southgate Elementary is a school committed to our students. With help from our families and the community, we will work to ensure academic and social-emotional growth. We will provide a safe, nurturing environment for all.
SOUTHGATE MAKES GREAT GAINS ON MCA SCORES
Southgate students made great gains on the 2012-2013 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA). We received word that we are "celebration school eligible" according to state criteria. We are proud of the great work that our staff, students, and families have put forward to achieve these gains!
The Southgate carnival will be on Friday, March 21 from 5:30-8:00. A ticket pre-sale will occur. Please watch your child's backpack for more information soon.
Snow Make-up Day
Due to the number of snow days we have had this year we will be having a full day of school on March 12 (rather than the early release that had been scheduled).

PARENTS AS PARTNERS
It is critical that schools and families partner together for children's success. Teachers will communicate in the student agendas. Please check these daily to stay abreast of students' practice (homework). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us at school. Also, if adults would like to volunteer to help in the schools, please contact the office (507) 460-1300. We have many tasks that need assistance.
Please remember to report absences to the school (507) 460-1300. When reporting a child's absence, please state the reason they are gone. This helps us to code the absence correctly. Children's attendance is monitored, so it is important that absences are reported. Thank you!
