Citizenship has become an "unofficial theme" for the year for students at South Effingham Middle School. Principal Pete Iott promotes the importance of maintaining good citizenship to the students on a daily basis.

Citizenship — consistently demonstrates respect for other people and their property.

Leadership — serves as a positive role model for their peers.

Responsibility — completes assignments on time and is prepared for class.
