Southside School is located on the southern edge of
Morrison, nestled between the Morrison High School and the Junior High
School buildings. It is a location that gives an open country feeling
with open fields and a small pine forest just across the street. This
3rd through 5th grade building, built in 1992, is the newest building
in the District.
As the middle grades school in this District, Southside
offers a time of transition for the Children of Morrison. As these
young learners go through the third, fourth, and fifth grades, their
main focus is no longer on “learning to read”, but has
moved into the “reading to learn” phase. With a continued
focus on the 3 R’s, social studies and sciences begin to play a
more significant role in preparing them for the challenges of life. We
are further building of the foundations of learning for our students so
that they will become Lifelong Learners ready to meet the challenges of
the global society.
As a dedicated professional and support staff we hold
high expectations for ourselves in giving your children the finest
opportunities to learn. We strive to provide a warm learning
environment in which we maintain high expectations for our students to
succeed and excel.
The 277 young people and 26 staff members of Southside
are proud of our PTO and the support it gives our programs. The
dedication and time commitment of the PTO are significant in making
Southside that “extra special” place where children come to
Parents are always welcome to visit our school and their
children’s classrooms. Just stop in at the office and let us know
you are here and you can join your child’s learning experience or
have lunch with them in our cafeteria.
Hope to see you here.
