•       ~PATRIOT ACTS~       
    You might be hearing your child/children talking about “Patriot Acts” tickets or they may have already won a prize based on earning a “Patriot Act” ticket.  South Side Elementary has created a school wide behavior system.  Teachers are modeling with their students our South Side Student Expectations which are listed below.  As students are demonstrating these expectations, teachers are rewarding their efforts with a “Patriot Act” ticket.  Each week, the teachers place the tickets in our “Fishing for Praise” fish tank in the office for a weekly school wide drawing.  Please feel free to review these expectations with your child/children and help them earn their “Patriot Act” tickets. 
    Go Patriots!
