Huge Congrats to the Southside Green Team on their first Farm to Fork Dinner. It was a huge success! The participation by Southside's Student Council made everyone's night. Thank you to all who attended and volunteered! It is because of all of you that Southside is able to host such incredible events.
Thank you also to the dedicated volunteers who are helping with our salad bar. As you may know, the salad bar is now on Tuesdays & Thursdays for all grades. BUT - if we don't have volunteers for those days, we will no longer have our salad bar. Please consider volunteering by clicking "salad bar sign-up" on the right side of this page, or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever wrapped gifts at Holiday House? It is super fun and the students love the opportunity to come to the stage and select a gift for a loved one. Click the link to the right labeled "Holiday House Sign-up" to choose a shift or two that works for you.
The Fall Fundraiser items will be ready to distribute on November 30th. This is especially important for those who ordered cookie dough: please come and pick it up in the cafeteria on the 30th from 4:30pm-6:30pm. Because it is perishable, unclaimed cookie dough will be donated.

Thank you so much to everyone who was able to help with Southside's Mock Election for grades 3 through 5. The students were very excited to have a chance to participate in the 2016 election.
It's official....Southside families LOVE cookie dough. Thank you to everyone for your generous orders! We can't wait to deliver the dough!
Southside's wonderful salad bar is now being offered on Tuesdays & Thursdays. The feedback has overwhelmingly been "love it!" However, in order to keep the salad bar permanently, we need volunteers to serve the salads from 11-1. There's no prep or clean up involved for volunteers. Just remember closed-toe shoes, hair pulled back (if needed), and get ready to smile for the entire day. The kids are awesome. Sign-up by clicking on "Salad Bar Sign-up" (to the right) or "volunteer" (at the top of this page).
Don't forget that tickets are currently on sale for the first ever "Farm to Fork" dinner. The dinner is on November 15th, from 6-8, at The Francis. Not only can you buy tickets here on this site, but the Green Team is selling tickets each morning in the hall outside the main office. Thank you to everyone who has already purchased tickets! We're super excited to get out there and experience what our school has been growing.
Did you know that the Sarasota Classified/Teachers Association collects gently used formal gowns all year long? They are collected for "Cinderella's Closet; high school students can go and choose a formal gown for Prom...for FREE. Help make a high school student's prom a night to remember. You can send your gowns and dresses to Southside with your child, or drop them off in the school office. Thank you!!
