Welcome to South Side

It is a GREAT place to play, learn, and grow together. Our team of caring staff members and volunteers knows it is a privilege to work with you and your child! Our mission is to provide each student with a quality, caring learning environment. We believe in providing students with an academically strong foundation which is achieved through quality guided reading instruction and interactive math instruction. We strive to maximize the unique abilities of our children by also providing weekly art, music, PE, and library.

Our goal is not only to develop lifelong learners but also future citizens. This is accomplished by providing engaging hands-on learning opportunities for the children as well as focusing on “bucket filling” behaviors which encourage respect, responsibility, kindness, and honesty toward all people.


When you and your child enter the doors of South Side School, you become a part of our TEAM! Together Everyone Achieves More and when we work together, all children benefit!

Again, Welcome to South Side; it is going to be a GREAT year!

Visitors are Welcome

You are always welcome at the school; however, visitors are required by state law to report to the office whenever they enter a school building. Please make sure you stop at the office to sign in and sign out when entering and leaving the building and wear a badge for the safety of the students. Thank you!

Information 2019-20 School Year

Welcome to South Side School!  During the first day of school, you and your child will have the opportunity to see the classroom, meet the teacher and tour the building. Students will bring their school supplies to the Meet the Teacher Event. During the week of August 19-24 your child will receive a letter from his or her teacher specifying a time for your visit.
