SSMS Career Day
SSMS hosted a Career Day on Thursday, May 12th for all sixth through eighth grade students. The day began with a morning keynote session stressing the importance of safe social media use. Following the large group session, the students had the opportunity to visit with four different presenters aligned to their areas of interest. THANK YOU to the 40+ community presenters who volunteered their time to talk with our students. Career Day was a wonderful day of authentic learning!

Laptop Insurance is now available
Students in grades 6-12 can now purchase insurance for their laptop that will allow them to take the device home.  This is the second year that the district has partnered with the Worth Ave Group to add coverage to the devices if parents decide to do so.  Please note, this is optional and is only required if students would like to have the ability to take the device home.  The cost to fully insure the device is $62 and checks are made payable to the South Side Area School District.  Students and parents are required to sign off on the District-Owned Devices handbook which is available in the MS/HS office prior to insurance being offered.  If you have any questions about the insurance coverage or process, please contact Mike Lewis, Assistant Superintendent at 724-573-9581, ext. 2612.  Thank you.

Manifest Destiny
The American Experience, a joint AP US History and AP Language class at SSHS, has paired with Gateway to the Arts over the last two years to incorporate high-quality, curriculum-based projects into the course for the benefit of our students and beautification of our school.  In the spring of 2015 the class created an art piece, pictured here, entitled Manifest Destiny.  This art installation, which was made using wood burning techniques, follows the march of progress westward and explores the tipping points that define each region’s identity.  Short, evocative phrases engage the viewer without explaining the images.  This process, of grappling with quotes and symbols, is designed to elicit a personal response from the audience.  The piece is now proudly displayed in the 300 hallway as a testament to the power of imagination, shared vision, and collaborative effort.
