Dear Southside Parents and Families, 

With the conclusion of the 2023/24 school year, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the Southside community. As a relative newcomer to the school, each day I have been impressed by the generosity of spirit and dedication to excellence of parents, caregivers, staff, and students.

This year has been a joy to watch the continuous growth of our students as they have reached new milestones, created positive memories, and demonstrated what it means to S.O.A.R. as a Southside Eagle. We wish our 6th grade graduates all the best in their new adventures in middle school and are already busy planning another great year for our returning and new students. 

To help you plan ahead, here are a few important dates for the fall: 

As a gentle reminder, please submit your student(s)’ enrollment verification in Powerschool if you haven’t done so already. This step must be completed for all returning and new students to Southside Elementary. You can access the link HERE (https://www.lposd.org/parent-student-patron-resources/enrollment-information). 

Wishing you a safe and joyous summer, 

Jennifer Smith, Principal
