Retreats - This has been approved and will happen in the 2021-2022 school year

Our 4th – 8th grade classes enjoy overnight, team-building retreats in September. This is a great time for students to bond with their classmates and teachers as the school year begins.

Grandparents’ Day - currently on hold

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.

Chili BINGO Night currently on hold

Enjoy this family fun night perfect for all ages in October. This is hosted by our middle school students as a fundraiser for their educational trip in the spring. Free face painting for children, yummy food, and BINGO with prizes!

Christmas Programs - December - currently on hold

In December, all students are welcome to participate in a Christmas program. Preschool and K-8 students have separate programs where they showcase what they have been doing in music, while celebrating the joy and hope of Christ's birth. 


 Students seek pledges for a service orientated fundraiser. Students will show His love by serving others through acts of care. Donors can choose how they would like their contribution to assist the school, such as Tuition Assistance, Music/Art Programs, Technology, etc. 

Family Day currently on hold

In May, all students, preschool through 8th grade, have a time to celebrate their families. Special programs honoring their family and delicious treats to enjoy. It is our time to say thank you. 

Carnival & Museum 

Enjoy an evening full of entertainment and fun! This evening in May features a museum of things to see and do while the middle school students host carnival games throughout the school as well. Prizes, food and fun!

Girls’ Tea & Boys Field Day

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. It is a wonderful afternoon of food, tea, and dancing.

The boys head off to a near by park for organized games for field day. After a fun time of sports and games, they enjoy a special treat.
