Principals' Welcome

Where Each Child Is Special, All Children Are Loved, And Every Child Is Important

On behalf of all staff members, Mrs. Welch and Mr. Strader, we would like to welcome you to South Side Elementary School, "Home of the Little Rams and their families.” 
At SSES, we are proud of our students and our educational programs. We strive to provide a physically and emotionally safe environment where students know that we care about them while maintaining high academic expectations for all. In addition, we are excited to continue our 1:1 iPad initiative for the upcoming school year. Every student and staff member in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade will have their own iPad to use in the classroom. In addition, all classrooms are fully equipped with Smart Boards and LCD projectors that will help support 21st century teaching and learning. More than ever before, we are responsible for preparing our students for a world that we can't even imagine yet, and this initiative is a way to help prepare them for things to come. We hope that by working together that our students will find school an enjoyable, meaningful and rich experience.

We want to be accessible to you and welcome your presence, comments, and questions. This website is a sign of our commitment to keeping an open line of communication and to encourage your involvement and participation in your child's school.

Our staff is dedicated to providing a quality learning experience for students in an environment where teamwork, problem solving, responsibility and respect are valued. We look forward to a successful and productive year. If we may be of service to you in any way, please call the school office at (724) 573-9581.
