Tradition lives on... Southside is on the Kids' Side!

February 22, 2016


I am so proud of our BIGGEST LOSER participants...

47 pounds lost in the first week! Keep it up girls!

Message from the Boss...

If you are on the Leadership Committee, remember we have a meeting Monday, 3:30 in room 101. We will be done before 4:00.

Kid Talks are next week. Be sure to look for your date and time. I have changed it up a little to allow more time to discuss students.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love you,

Casey Hanna


I would like to do Kid Talks a little different. We are still going to meet for Kid Talks during recess but I feel that there is just not enough time for teachers to really talk about all the students they need to talk about.

Attached is the date and time each teacher will come for Kid Talks. I have broken the grade levels up to 2 teachers each Kid Talk. I hope this will allow each teacher more time to talk about their students.

Be sure to mark your calendar for the proper date, time and be ready to TALK about your KIDS! We will meet in Room 101!
