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

February 1, 2016

BRAG TIME: Students at Southside! They are what it is all about!

From the Boss...

February is finally here! I hope that this month is more KIND to us than the last.

Remember here are some of the changes due to inclement weather:

1. The 4th grade G/T quiz bowl tournament has been rescheduled for Friday, February the 5th.

2. Power Panthers that were to be honored at the basketball game January 22nd has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 23rd.

3.PAW Pride Assembly will be Friday, February 5th. This will replace January 22md assembly. We are NOT adding additional names just rolling over the PAW Pride names.

How about the Great Kindness Challenge?? It has been such a good week of KINDNESS! Let's continue this KINDNESS throughout the building. Remind students daily that you get more out of life by being KIND!


Love you,

Casey Hanna
