Welcome to Southside Elementary!

Welcome to Southside Elementary - Grady County's oldest AND newest school.

The original school was housed in our historic auditorium located on 3rd Street. Constructed in 1922, the auditorium was once home to both Cairo High School and Southside Elementary. The auditorium was completely renovated during the 2016-2017 school year. Shortly thereafter, construction and demolition projects occurred creating our current campus configuration and changing our address to 322 4th Avenue, S.E. 

Much of the older wings and remnants of the older campus were demolished to make room for twenty new classrooms, a new media center and administrative offices. We are very proud of our new buildings and the renovation of the auditorium. Southside is a great place for our young people to learn, live, lead and leave a legacy!

Upcoming Events

Our current plan is to have students to return to school Monday, August 3, 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year. This plan, however, is tentative due to the situations we currently face with the COVID19 pandemic. Please monitor the Grady County School System website and the local news outlets to keep informed about the status of the upcoming year.

Please utilize the Weekly Readers that were distributed to students as report cards were collected to keep students actively engaged in academics. If you did not receive a Weekly Reader magazine please make sure you both read with your child(ren) or have them to read throughout the summer months.

Roddenbery Memorial Library is providing curbside pickup and is an excellent resource for summer reading. Additionally, use online resources to explore topics of interest and perhaps even "venture out" on virtual field trips with your student(s). Keeping mentally active over the summer months is critical to increased academic success once school resumes. 

Take care over the summer and be safe! 

Please, no teacher requests for the 2020-2021
(& forward) year

 Southside Elementary is no longer accepting teacher requests.

Please rest assured we work diligently to build diverse classes that will be in the best interests of all of our students and teachers.
