Soccer Athletes

It is a great day at Whiteside Middle School when our students are back in the building!  Our older soccer athletes are mentors to the younger players.  The mentors took the athletes on a building tour and gave them good advice about middle school.

7th Grade Welcome Night

All 7th graders are invited to attend our 3rd Annual 7th Grade Welcome Night on Thursday, August 23rd from 6:00-8:00pm at Whiteside Middle School.

This event will be an opportunity for all 7th graders to work with their peers and fellow students through fun, non-competitive activities.  The emphasis will be on positive communication, discovering common experiences, and sharing and listening to one another.  The more students share in common, the more apt they are to encourage each other and build up their peers.

We will begin this action packed and fun filled evening at 6:00pm with a pizza dinner, and we hope that all 7th graders are able to join us for this third annual event.
