Ephesians 4:32 calls us to be kind, compassionate, and forgiving to others around us. At Southside Christian School, we desire for all of our students to live as “E432 individuals.” To live this way most effectively we must live within community and hold one another accountable, as a family does for each other. We are the Southside Christian School Family, and within that, we have designed four families that throughout the year will spend time together, eat together, celebrate together, serve together, worship together, and hold one another accountable.
Each family name represents one of the core values that flow from the “E432 Vision.” We want to be people of friendship, compassion, honor, and courage as we live in community and help one another. To accomplish this vision, each student and teacher in grades 1-8 are adopted into one of these families.
