Principal's Message

Welcome to Southside Middle School - Home of the Panthers!
Doors Open - 8:40 a.m.

Dear Panther Family,

Are you ready for a great year? We are!

I am Dr. Betsy Biederstedt, the Interim Principal here at Southside. I may be new to the school and to MCS, but I'm not new to success, and I'm looking forward to getting the year off to a successful start.

Please make sure your students are healthy and symptom-free before sending them to school for the day. We are doing everything possible to keep our children safe and focused on school this year. If we all do our part, it will be a great year. If you have any questions about our COVID plans, click here. Our return to school protocols are here

In case you haven't used the Health Clinic in our building, it is awesome! It is also a rare asset for any school, as is the incredible fitness facility our students have access to. They are also available to you as well. Please call 765-729-3237 with any questions.

For all other questions or issues, please reach out to us directly at 765-747-5320. We look forward to serving you and helping your students achieve their maximum potential.


Dr.Betsy Biederstedt
Interim Principal
