Pedestal Joust, 4 -n-1 Bounce combo will be there for kids of all ages to enjoy. We are bringing back the Bell Ringer and Speed Pitch too. There will be Face Painting by Changing Facesut.com. We will also have many fun, new games with awesome prizes, hair painting, cotton candy, snow cones, drinks, pizza, hot dogs and nachos.
You will want to stop by the Silent Auction to bid on baskets including date nights, games, summer fun, Stampin’ Up products, spa treatments, the U of U, picnics, subway art, and more.

This is a great event that will benefit all Southland students. The event’s proceeds will provide for next year’s PTO programs such as the Reading Program, Dads and Donuts, drug awareness, health and safety programs, talent days,

We're Number 4!

Southland is number 4 in the Ken Garff Road to Success Reading program. Our wonderful Reading Program Chair Megan Crandall is working to get our February minutes in and that will hopefully move us up to number 2 or 3. Way to go Sabertooths!

FOX 13 news will be coming to interview us and cover our success on March 22nd. Keep it up readers!
