    art Student art can be seen everywhere.  As you walk past the office area, you will be amazed to see an entire wall of colorful tile mosaic art.  The mosaic art was made by students and describes our school.  Our World Comes Together at South Side...Our Diversity is Our Strength.
     In the middle of the school, we have an outdoor classroom that is a nature area.  Teachers use the area for Science lessons or other curriculum lessons.  Students may explore the pond or vegetation environment.
     
     We work closely with our parents and community members in volunteer efforts to extend learning experiences for every student.  We measure success with our learning experiences and are committed to having our students become readers, writers, and problem solvers.
