Southside Elementary News

Week of 9/5/17

From Mrs. Allen

We have been rocking and rolling the first 3 weeks of school!! Your children are FANTASTIC!! They have settled in so well and are learning exciting new things!! We are looking forward to another great week at Southside!!

Car Rider Reminders

When dropping off or picking up your child, please do not go around other cars. We are working hard to keep all of our kids safe and this is one way we are able to do that!

Grandparents/ Grandfriends Day

One of our favorite times of the year is Grandparents/Grandfriends Day! Our 2 days set aside for Grandparents/Grandfriends Day are Thursday, September 28th and Friday, September 29th.


We know that not all grandparents will be able to make it during this time. If this is the case, please let your child's teacher know in advance if someone else will be eating with your child so we know who will be in our building.


PTO always does a fabulous job with Grandparents Day. More information will be coming home soon.

Homecoming Parade

On Friday, September 29th the high school will be having their Homecoming. All Cabot Public Schools will be dismissing at 2:00 that day. The Homecoming Parade will begin at 3:30. It starts on Pine Street down close to Southside Elementary and ends at Central Elementary. We will send reminders that school gets out early that day.

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Mt. Carmel Baptist Church is coordinating a local effort to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. They are partnering with an organization in Houston that has experience in helping people through disasters. The schools are working with them to be a drop-off point for needed items. The only items that are taking are:
