Principal's Message

 It is such a pleasure to be part of this very loving community school!  It warms my heart to hear our parents talk about their own Northside memories as students and to work with them side by side to guarantee that their own children now have that same successful  and happy school experience.  When I hear you say, "Cayce / West Columbia is a special place" I understand that this means more and more.
As a faculty, our commitment to you is quite simple. We offer you our personal best every day. IOUMPB We hope to get the best out of your beautiful children as well. They deserve a safe and happy environment in which to learn. We intend to make certain they have it.
Mary Paige Damm
