2017-2018 Student Handbook

Together We Achieve the Extraordinary!

Welcome Back, Bulldogs! 

Hello Mighty Bulldogs,

Southmore is about to open its doors to an incredible school year!

The Southmore Staff and Faculty have been working hard this year to prepare and get ready for 2017 - 18!  Our theme this year is “Together We Achieve the Extraordinary!”

Early Registration will take place @ Southmore on August 9 – 10 from 8:00 – 5:30 and we encourage our parents and students to take advantage of the early registration process.

Monday, August 21, 2017 is the first day of school for PISD students! Please note, the school day begins at 8:10 and the building will be open for students at 7:30. Breakfast will be served on the 1st day of school to all students.

Our main purpose in sending this letter is to make sure our parents are aware of our Back to School information, which will be posted, on our website closer to the start of school. Please look for the following:

  • Bus Routes Link
  • Bus Schedule Link
  • School supplies list
  • SMI Dress Code
  • Campus Calendar

You can find each of the links above at Southmore.pasadenaisd.org and review updated back to school information.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to welcome and serve our students in 2017 - 18! We expect our “Mighty Bulldogs” to come this next year with great attitudes and a desire to learn. We know as a parent, you want your child to experience an outstanding school year and we are prepared to deliver just that! Our goal for all our Bulldogs is to help them grow academically, emotionally, and socially so they become productive and engaging individuals! Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious possession. Please support us each day as we together instill the following expectations in our mighty bulldogs:

Bulldogs are EXPECTED to:

Be Prepared!

Be on Time!

Be Positive!

Be Persistent!

Be Considerate of Others!

Always dress for success!


We look forward to working with each of you this next year! Enjoy your summer with family and friends!

Thank you,

Derek Moody

Principal, Southmore Intermediate
