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!
