Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey

Our district is participating in the Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 10th – 21st

The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.

Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Heathy Youth Survey.

Superintendent’s Message

Thank you to all who have contributed to making Southside School District an exemplary learning opportunity for our students. It is a privilege to be at Southside School District. We are a quaint community that provides a premier education for all students who attend. We are small enough for each staff member to learn about each and every student and to address academic needs to make school a successful endeavour. The success of our students can be contributed to the collaborative efforts of students, staff, parents, and community members. A successful educational program focuses on students learning and teachers teaching. At Southside, this is our priority. Supplemental enrichment opportunities are also planned.

At Southside, we welcome the support and assistance of family and community members. If you want to be part of Southside School District, please, contact us. Your input is welcome. We are always looking for ways to improve.

Make it a great day!

Doris Bolender
