Parents and Students,
Please read, respond, and plan accordingly.
Congratulations to the Southside Boys Basketball Team for their win this Saturday against Dillon! It was a great game and our guys are now the 3A State Champions! Great job to Brianna Lewis for her performance of the national anthem! It was an outstanding performance.
As you all may know we will be welcoming Mr. Andre Dukes as our new principal in 2017-18. We are encouraged that he will continue the Southside tradition. I would like to personally thank Mr. Griffith for the fantastic job he has done as principal. We have all thrived under his leadership and I can honestly say this has been the best year yet. He will be staying with Southside as an Assistant Principal and I am excited to continue this awesome journey!
Please keep the Wade Hampton band in your prayers. They lost their Drum Major in a car accident this weekend. We will have a card to sign tomorrow. Lets show our love for another band family.
Tomorrow we are excited to have Dr. Washington with us after school. Show up prepared!
Executive board position:
The new logo will appear on the band trailer as well as band website and merchandise. So, lets make it a GREAT design.
