Welcome Parents and Guardians to Southside Academy Charter School and the 2019-2020 School Year. We are looking forward to an amazing school year supporting your scholars and increasing our family engagement in the healthiest and most positive ways possible. On September 17, 2019, Southside Academy Charter School proudly welcomes our parents and families to meet their child's teachers, specials teachers, the Intervention Team, along with other essential staff members, during our annual Back to School Night which will also serve as our annual Title 1 Parent Meeting. We look forward to this opportunity every fall because it gives us the chance to discuss how your child’s educational programs are in place to support their educational journeys here at Southside and also to learn from you how we can serve you and your child better. We will start to welcome families as early at 5:30 PM. Our evening ends at 7:00 PM.
While you are visiting us, we encourage you to look at the student work that we have posted on the bulletin boards of our hallways and within our classrooms. We are very pleased with the work that our teachers do with your children, and we always look for opportunities to brag about our awesome scholars. Also, please feel free to stop by my office to say hello and/or the offices of our Deans of Instruction; Ms. Curry, K-2 Dean, Mrs. Gallo, 3-5 Dean, Mrs. Guarasci, 6-8 Dean, and Mrs. Moss, Dean of Special Education and Intervention.
Please know we appreciate each and everyone of our parents. We have placed a “Suggestion Box” right near the parent room. Please feel free to submit an anonymous note of what we are doing well (Glows) and areas where we can improve (Grows) as a school community. I will respond quarterly to your comments and recommendations. Your willingness to partner with us as we do this very important work of educating your children is priceless. You are your child's first teacher and we simply could not do this without you.
