Work in the Volunteer Room

There is work in the volunteer room to be done. If you look in your teachers basket and they don't have anything to do, feel free to help another teacher.
Today Mrs. Geer and Mrs. Oldryod had work in their TO DO baskets.
The room is located between the library and gym. If the door is locked, ask a secretary for a key.
Remember, there is a TV/VCR in the room for you to use if you are bringing your children. (We would love movie donations.) If you bring your child, please do not leave them unattended.
Thanks for your work! We are excited to get the room going. It will be another great way to get volunteer hours at Southland.

Campbell's Soup Labels

Good News!!  Labels for Education is not just Campbell’s Soup Labels.  See the page below for all the products that we can turn in UPC labels or lids to receive Art, Athletic, and Academic supplies for our school.  You can go to to find out more information.
There are also some bonus offers available:
-You can purchase cookbooks and our school will receive 125 points for each cookbook purchased.  Go to for more information and to see the cookbooks that are available.
-Register your Smith’s card and we will receive an additional point for each product purchased.  That is on top of the points we receive when we submit the UPC codes.
 Go to  for more information and to register your card.

HERE IS THE FUN PART!!  We are having a contest!!!  The family that turns in the most points (not UPC labels, but points) will win 4 movie passes to the District Megaplex Theaters!! 
The deadline is NOVEMBER 15.  Be sure to send UPC codes and a copy of cookbooks purchased and points received from Smith’s in a plastic bag or envelope with one of your student’s name and teacher clearly labeled on it (please try and have the same student’s name on each submission so the same family receives the credit).

Reading Program

Do you want to help your student get access to new books at school? There's an easy way from Sunny D that can make a difference.

This year Southland is asking for donations of Sunny D upc labels to help each teacher build their libraries. Sunny D will donate 20 books for 20 upc labels. The program ends November 30 so send in the upc codes asap.

Being a part of the SunnyD Book Spree is easy! All classrooms, Pre–K through 7th grade, can participate. Here’s what you do:
  • Clip UPC labels found on the back of the label on eligible SunnyD bottles 16 oz and larger and/or the shrink wrap of 6, 8, 12 or 24 packs of single serve SunnyD. Note that all cans and bottles 12 oz and smaller are not eligible. Click here to see which products are eligible.
  • Send eligible UPC labels to school with your child.
  • Download the parent kit, which includes program pamphlets and a prewritten letter telling your child's teacher about the program.
Adobe Reader required for Teacher Kit and Parent Kit PDFs.
Hurry! The Book Spree ends 11/30/2011.
All labels will be counted by 12/31/2011.
Books will be mailed by 2/29/2012.

Please visit for more details.
Thanks for your support.
