Ever dream of going to Space Camp?

Alexandria Lindsay English Teacher at South Middle School applied for a scholarship for her student Tiyana Russell to experience the world famous "Space Camp".  Guess what?  Both Tiyana and Ms. Lindsay were selected and are getting to go to the camp in July!  All expenses  are paid by Northrop for Tiyana and Ms Lindsay.  What an opportunity for a student to have the chance to go to "Space Camp" in Alabama this July.   Congratulations Ms. Lindsay for going that extra step and being selected to go to Space Camp. Tiyana what a great experience for you- reaching for the stars and making your dreams come true.  If you would like more information on scholarships for next year go to

No Place for Hate

South Middle School has been designated a “No Place for Hate” school since the 2013-2014 school year by the Anti-Defamation League. No Place for Hate helps to create and sustain an inclusive school environment where all students feel valued and have the opportunity to succeed by promoting respect for individual difference while challenging bigotry and prejudice.

Students at South signed their Resolution of Respect for the 2014-2015 school year

Resolution of Respect

I pledge from this day forward to do my best to combat prejudice and to stop those who, because of hate or ignorance, would hurt anyone or violate their civil rights. I will try at all times to be aware of my own biases and seek to gain understanding of those who I perceive as being different from myself. I will speak out against all forms of prejudice and discrimination. I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate. I will think about specific ways my community members can promote respect for people and create a prejudice-free zone. I firmly believe that one person can make a difference and that no person can be an innocent bystander when it comes to opposing hate. I recognize that respecting individual dignity, achieving equality and promoting inter-group harmony are the responsibilities of all people.

By signing this pledge, I commit myself to creating a community that is NO PLACE FOR HATE® .
