Walkathon Fundraising

Fundraising Week starts on Monday, and Superstars are already getting started.  Walkathon raises funds to support music, art, enrichment, equipment, field trips, and more–all to benefit our school!

You can help your student create a fundraising page online where they can make an avatar, enter a lap goal, and write a personal message.  A link to the page can then be shared electronically with family, friends, and other prospective donors.  To begin, click on “My Walkstarter” on our Walkathon portal at

MemberHub is active!

South Side’s MemberHub is live!

The PTA is transitioning over to using MemberHub as our main communication tool & we would love to have 100% of our South Side families & staff signed-up, so that everyone is receiving school news & there is an up-to-date school directory.  This wordpress site will be phased out in the next few weeks, so if you haven’t signed up for MemberHub yet, do so today!

Once registered on the secure website, you can choose which, if any, information to make public and how you would like to receive news (emails, text or none).

Select “child”, if they are not a current South Side student.

Select “adult” if they live in your household, but are not a direct parent or guardian.
