District 5 High School Choir
On January 21st-23rd, Megan Pieto, Alexandra Adams and Megan Bothell all had the honor of rehearsing and performing with this year’s 2015 District 5 Choir under the direction of Dr. Christopher Kiver, director of numerous Penn State University Choirs.  Congratulations to all three of these students on their achievements and beautiful performance! 

In addition to this achievement, both Alex and Megan auditioned and were ranked within the top 6 chairs for their voice parts, thus earning them each a place at the Region Choir Festival which will take place at the end of February.  From there, they will again audition in the hopes of advancing to our 2015 Pennsylvania All- State Choir.  Bravo on an outstanding achievement, and we wish you luck as you prepare for the next performance and audition!    
Team South Side Rams participated in the Polar Plunge!
On Saturday, January 24th twelve staff members from the district came out to "plunge" into the Beaver River to help raise money for the Beaver County and PA Special Olympics.  Team members included Superintendent Tammy Adams, Assistant Superintendent Mike Lewis, Ann Marie Matthews, Mike Colligan, Laura Batchelor, Stacie Stonebraker, Theresa Riggs, Jen Shroads, Carrie Bodnar, Kim Zerance, Mike Lipnicky and Barrett Mergenthaoer.  This was South Side's second year in a row participating in the event that raised nearly $80,000 this year for the cause.  Thanks to all of those who donated, came out to support the team or participated in what was a quite chilly afternoon.
Dustin Lander Receives Baseball Scholarship
South Side senior baseball player, Dustin Lander, recently signed his National Letter of Intent to play Division 1 Baseball at Charleston Southern University located in Charleston, South Carolina.  Dustin had an outstanding junior year as he helped lead the Rams to the playoffs and was named the W.P.I.A.L "AA" Pitcher of the year.  Dustin was a perfect 8-0 on the mound and one of his victories was a no-hitter against Shady Side Academy in the first round of the W.P.I.A.L. Class AA playoffs. He had 78 strikeouts and also hit around .400 from his leadoff position.  Congratulations Dustin and good luck this spring and at Charleston Southern!
SSMS hosts PAMLE Professional Development Institute
Congratulations to the South Side Middle School for hosting today's Pennsylvania Middle Level Education Professional Development Institute. With over 200 teachers in attendance and Mr. Jack Berckemeyer as the keynote speaker, it was a day full of energy and collaboration. South Side had several staff members presenting on topics such as student-led conferences and cross-curricular lessons to ALICE training for school safety. Today's theme...Living It, Loving It, Laughing About It! came to life throughout the building.
School Delay or Cancellation
The South Side Area School District takes many factors into account before delaying or cancelling school.  Factors such as visibility, traction, temperature, wind chill and timing of a storm are often considered.  In the event of a school delay or closing, parents will receive a phone call from the One Call Now system.  Delay and cancellation information will also be posted on our district website as well as on local media sources.  (WPXI, KDKA, WTAE, Froggy Radio, WBVP)  Ultimately the safety of our students and staff is at the core of all weather related decisions.   A special thank you to South Side Garage and our townships who assist in promoting safety for all.
Announcement regarding the use of South Side's track
The community is welcome to utilize the district campus and track area until 10:00pm each evening; however, please be advised that from November 2nd through February 28th, the campus will be closed in the evenings due to potential inclement weather.  Thank you.
