February is our annual celebration of Black History Month. Every week we will highlight a different figure in Black History to put a spotlight on their important work which helped shape the world we know today. Today’s spotlight is on:

Thurgood Marshall
After graduating from law school, Marshall started working on civil rights cases to fight for equality for African Americans. But probably his best known case was Brown vs. Board of Education, which challenged school segregation, when white and Black students are forced to go to separate schools. Marshall argued in front of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the United States, that "separate" was not equal, as people who supported segregation believed. Marshall was the Supreme Court's first African-American justice.

All Advisories – today and tomorrow you will receive a neon colored poster with a word on it related to kindness.  To close out our celebration of Kindness month, please have students from each advisory decorate the poster  with stickers and write on the board what the word makes them think about.  Please display the posters outside your advisory once it is complete by the end of the week.
Thanks!   The SADD Club loves you!
Here is today’s SADD Club kindness quote:
“Never lose a chance of saying a kind word.”  William Makepeace Thackery

There will be NO ART CLUB  this week.  Please see the CLUB BOARD or GOOGLE CLASSROOM for March Dates!

South Side Middle School is a learning environment that provides students with opportunities to move toward the goal of being independent learners and thinkers. Our goal is to provide experiences to help students understand their unique aptitudes and interests and be able to adjust to their rapidly changing environment, while meeting their unique physical, intellectual, social, and emotional needs. 

We strive to create a climate that enables students to develop a sense of self-worth, and have compassion and respect for others by valuing individual differences. We facilitate a caring learning environment where students feel safe, important and engaged. Our students demonstrate responsible global citizenship, and are cognizant of their place within the school community. 

In this success-oriented environment, we provide opportunities for exploration and risk-taking. The structure of the school day is designed to permit students to reach the standards established by the New York State Board of Regents, while adhering to New York State Standards and embracing the framework of the IB Middle Years Programme. Our vision is to create lifelong learners who seek to attain balance in all that they do.
