Great Things Are Happening
We have great things happening at Southside. Thank you all who joined us at the Fall Festival on Saturday! I enjoyed seeing you all relaxing with your families. Even through the rain, we all had a good time. Who knew the dunk tank would be a workout! We also had teachers and administrators from other CSUSA schools visit us today. Our students and staff did an excellent job. Although this comes as no surprise, it is always good to have others see the wonderful things we have going on at Southside.
Yours in Education,
Duval Charter School at Southside
