Traditions

Retreats
Our 3rd – 8th grade classes enjoy overnight, team building retreats in September. This is a great time for students to bond with their classmates and teacher as the school year begins.

Grandparents’ Day
In October, Kindergarten through 8th grade students invite their grandparents or a special guest to an afternoon of entertainment and delicious cookies. We schedule this event around a Scholastic Book Fair so the grandparents and children can enjoy shopping for books together.

Moms’ Day
In May, all students, preschool through 8th grade, have a time to celebrate mom. Preschoolers invite their moms to an adorable program and treat them to snacks made by their little hands. Kindergarten through 8th grade students prepare a special program honoring their mothers and enjoy delicious treats. It is our time to tell Mom thank you.

Dads’ Day
Each Spring, all students, preschool through 8th grade, have a time to celebrate dad. Preschoolers invite their dads to a special program and treat them to snacks they help make. Kindergarten through 8th grade students prepare a special program and enjoy donuts with dad.

Girls’ Tea
It is a tradition at Southside Christian School for the 7th & 8th grade girls to organize and serve a tea to the Kindergarten through 6th grade girls. Each year brings a different theme that inspires the table decorations and the costumes of the participants. It is a wonderful afternoon of food, tea, and dancing.
