United in Grief, United in Hope

Tonight, Floresville ISD and Southside ISD students and fans are wearing white in honor and in memory of those lost or injured as a result of the shooting in Sutherland Springs on Sunday, November 5th.  Our teams are tied for first place in the district 29-5A championship, but the competition between the schools is met with unity, solidarity, grief and love as we unite on this evening.

Southside Superintendent Mark E. Eads extends his support, β€œIt is in times like these that it is important we all stand together in the face of evil acts. Our children always come first. Southside is here to support our sister schools in whatever way we can. Our hearts and prayers are with Floresville and all the other districts affected.”

I would like to express my appreciation of support coming in for the students, families and communities affected. As we move forward with our children in the days to come, it is comforting to see and feel the support that surrounds us. Standing together strengthens us. The attendance and spirit of love means more to us than you may ever know.

The color white is one of peace and love. We hope to spread the message with this effort so that all communities can heal and find comfort during this time of tragedy
