Principal's Message

Welcome to Southside Middle School
Home of the Panthers!
Doors Open - 9:00AM

Welcome to Southside Middle School, Home of the Panthers. To our returning students, welcome back! To our newest Panthers, I want to welcome you into our Panther family for the 2020-2021 school year. There have been a lot of new adventures for us all these past few months and I look forward to having all of you back into the classrooms.  

To start the year off right, ongoing communication is vital to be “in the know” and engaged in your student’s school life. I invite you to take a look at our district website and our school website  which provides information on upcoming events, important teacher webpage links, announcements, and many other educational resources.  One important change that you’ll need to be aware of is our new block schedule for the students.  Southside Middle School students will have red and black days.  Depending on the color of the day will determine the students’ classes for that day. We’ll have plenty of reminders posted throughout the building for the students as to what day it is.  You can find a copy of the first semester red/black day calendar here:

As we approach the beginning of the school year you will receive my weekly message via our phone messenger system to inform you about the upcoming week’s events.  Additionally if you have a need please contact our front office.

Be Excellent to Each Other!

Dr. Corey Hartley
