Hello my name is Melissa Molandes and I am proud to be the principal at Southside Elementary.  I have been a part of PISD for 5 years.  I am looking forward to a great 2016-2017 school year with the AWESOME Southside staff and students.  

I received my Bachelor's Degree from Stephen F. Austin and my Master's Degree from Lamar University. This will be my 23rd year in Education.

At Southside Elementary it is our desire to foster a life-long love for learning.  The teachers and staff strive to help students connect what they learn at school to real life.  We want to build excitement in our students as they explore math and science and embark on adventures through reading. We use digital learning and hands-on activities to engage thinking and problem solving in our classrooms.  We work diligently to develop strong character and help them become loving and caring citizens. We want to help students identify their strengths and set goals to achieve success both now and in the future.

We consider it a great honor to partner with our parents and community to educate the 2nd and 3rd grade students in Palestine ISD. Thank you for entrusting us with your precious gifts!

Our Mission...
The Mission of Palestine Independent School District is to foster relationships that Excite, Engage, and Empower our students and community to achieve Excellence.
