• 4th grade students in the library

    Be a Reader. Be a Learner. Be an Explorer.

    At Southside, each student has unlimited access to knowledge and education. One of the ways we teach the students to become lifelong learners and informed citizens is through their time in the library.

    Classes have a regularly scheduled library time every week where they are exposed to new stories, cultures, and experiences, as well as curriculum support for the skills and knowledge they have gained in their classes. Students also have the opportunity to read for pleasure and entertainment through the Accelerated Reader program. The AR Program also tracks the words that the students read each year.

    If you have any questions about your child's time with the library, feel free to email the librarian at
