The Fall Fundraiser is underway and the students seem super pumped! Thank you to everyone who has already sent in their forms. The Fall Fundraiser runs through Thursday, October 20th. This year, we are thrilled to again be pairing with Great American Fundraising, selling such items as magazines, wrapping paper and small gifts. In addition, we are selling a large variety of cookie dough. The cookies are DELICIOUS! Samples have been going around campus and we can't wait to make these for the holidays.
Please remind your child to fill out and turn in their reach out booklets to claim a small prize (emoji key chain and wallet), and look through their fundraising envelopes to see what other prizes they can earn from selling! Southside was one of the best selling schools last year in the state of Florida and we hope to keep up the tradition. Go Panthers!

Have you heard about the salad bar yet? It started on Monday and it seems like it is a runaway hit. Everyone loves it. The students are excited and talking about salad. The wonderful ladies who serve lunch to our children were stunned by the popularity of the salad bar. No one was prepared for the number of students who literally lined up to eat salad. Are you interested in witnessing this October miracle firsthand? Volunteers are needed from 11-1 daily. Once food service officially determines that the salad bar is a "go," they will provide necessary staffing. Until then...it's up to the volunteers.
We are also excited to announce that Southside PTO's Fall Fundraiser is in full gear and will run through Thursday October 20th.

Thank you to all of our wonderful donors! With your help, our PTO was able to raise over $31,000 in just 24-hours. This is especially incredible because our donors contributed just over $10,000 and we will be receiving a match of over $20,000 from The Patterson Foundation. Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute to this amazing event.
