(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.

The SISD Feast of Giving is more than an event it is heart warming and just the kind of community involvement we all need from time to time. From smiling warm faces at the SHS cafeteria commons area to the auditorium stage, thousands of people gathered for a free meal and free entertainment. More than 3100 people from all over the area came to break bread and enjoy some turkey with all the trimmings. The event also featured a stunning display of talent from hundreds of Southside ISD student performers.
Here is a quick snapshot of a great event that we are all grateful for this holiday season: https://photos.app.goo.gl/gXsrZiox59jQe34T9

Happy parents, family members, and students filled Southside Stadium on Wednesday, September 28,making the Lighting of the S one of Southside ISD’s signature events. From Menchaca Early Childhood Center’s pre-K3 to the Southside High School Class of 2023, dozens of students represented every campus and so many clubs during a parade leading up to the big event. Students in the parade cheered and jumped, some yelling, “We are Cardinals,” as they walked passed the stands. Family members, for their part cheered back yelling, “Go Cardinals!” The event idea came from Superintendent Rolando Ramirez who sees a direct correlation between student pride, student behavior, and academic performance. While so many of the groups in the parade showed enormous spirit, the group of judges from Amerigroup, selected the Mighty Cardinal Band as the 2022 spirit winners. “We had such a great time seeing all of the students,” said Amerigroup’s Erika Salazar. “Southside ISD is such a warm place and we’re proud to be a part of the District’s success.”
