SSMS students reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
and Civic Responsibility

In order to be effective members of a free society, we must function as productive individuals in our public lives and demonstrate American civic virtues by solving problems in our own communities. How can we engage in our civic responsibilities and have a positive impact on society?  What service or action can you take or do to change society for the better?  How can we communicate the changes and dreams that we have for the communities that we belong to?




Tuesday, February 7, Day 2

Attention SSMS:  This year we will be celebrating the 100 year anniversary of this building, 67 Hillside Avenue.  Our building has been a High School, a Junior High, and of course, a Middle School.  Be on the lookout this year for amazing ways to help celebrate our great school building. 

To help us celebrate we will be promoting the hashtag #centennial;
a word which means 100 year anniversary. 

February is Black History month!
Today we honor Barack Obama.  Barack Obama was the 44th president of the United States and the first African American to hold the office.  Before winning the presidency, Obama represented Illinois in the U.S. Senate.  He was the third African American to be elected to that body since the end of Reconstruction in 1877.  In 2009 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Price “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”  We  are big and vast and diverse; a nation of people with different backgrounds and beliefs, different experiences and stories but bound by our shared ideal that no matter who you are or what you look like how you started off, or how and who you love.  America is a place where you can write your own destiny.”

February is Kindness month!
Today’s quote is “Kindness is simple.  It is seeing the good in everyone and celebrating it.”

South Side Middle School Mission Statement

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.

It is our goal to empower each student to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s emerging world. The District will provide a safe, nurturing environment in which individual and civic responsibility is  fostered, diversity is respected and all students are enabled to realize their full potential.
