(San Antonio, TX) – Santa came for a return visit to say hello to all the good boys and girls of Southside this week. But, this time he had a surprise partner, Mrs. Claus! Mrs. Claus joined her partner for a tour around the district visiting every elementary and Menchaca Early Childhood Center during the last week of school before winter break. All PreK3 and Prek4 students got a gift bag along with all 1st and 2nd graders here at Cardinal Nation. They were greeted with smiling faces and happy laughter. You could also hear a student sneaking in a wish or two while they got their picture taken with the celebrity couple. For a video on the fun event click the link.

Freedom is excited to announce the newest addition to our cafeteria. Our child nutrition department received a new serving line that was installed last week. This year is the 20th anniversary of the campus opening and it is a much deserved upgrade for our Freedom Cardinals. Our students can now look forward to sliding their trays through a state of the art serving line. Upgrades include the option to heat or chill plates at the push of a button and is customized with our school logo. The cafeteria staff is very excited to start serving our Freedom Cardinals.
Our student leaders were very busy supporting our community this month. Freedom collected non-perishable food items for two weeks. Students made posters to help advertise and once all donations were completed they worked together and made 10 boxes to donate to Freedom Families. For the month of December they are collecting unwrapped toys that will go to our Freedom students. Freedom student leaders are doing a great job supporting our campus and community!
The week of December 12-14 will be 2nd 9 weeks testing. All students will be in test mode as they complete their end of semester assessments. Dec. 12th is Reading, Dec. 13th is Math, Dec. 14th is Science (5th only.) Attendance is extremely important this week. We look forward to seeing some amazing growth and opportunity to earn a FIELD DAY!! The goal is to see a 10% increase from the 1st 9 weeks assessment in comparison to the 2nd 9 weeks. We know our students can do it! Come prepared, rested, and ready to show what you know!
