Our Vision, Mission, & Theme


To mold young minds to be creative, knowledgeable, productive citizens of good character in an ever-changing challenging world.


Cultivating Today's Learners to Become Tomorrow's Leaders

Theme for 2021-22 SY

Every Falcon. Every Day. On the Move.

The Principal’s Pen


Happy Monday, Falcons!

Our chorus students were #onthemove tonight as they presented their end of year concert in the gym. If you missed out tonight, you are welcome to join us later this week for one of our performing groups. The fliers are highlighted below in this newsletter.

We will continue with SC READY and SCPASS testing tomorrow and Wednesday; complete STAR Reading and Math on Thursday; and begin final exams on Friday! The final push is here! Our teachers have been working hard to prepare our students and I am confident our Falcons are ready to show some growth!

Thank you to all our Southside families and friends who came out to see the play last Thursday. We hope to see you at our remaining events as we conclude this school year.

We have several events appearing on our school calendar. Please be sure to go and follow our new Facebook page so that you can stay connected!
