In mid-October numerous Southland FFA members collected corn for the FFA to donate to Camp Courage and the Wounded Warrior Project. Students contacted local farmers then collected the grain and sold it at local elevators. Students collected over 2600 bushels. The FFA members would like to thank all who donated and helped make this event possible.
Southland FFA students attended the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Kentucky from October 27-31. They visited Bremer’s Apple Orchard in Indiana, Churchill Downs in Louisville, and the opening session at the Kentucky Exposition Center. Students attended a Jake Owen concert in the KFC Stadium in downtown Louisville. They attended workshops on chapter development, career areas and building leadership skills and attended an enormous career fair the size of 15 football fields. The Louisville Slugger Museum and a tour of the Ford Assembly Plant were also on the agenda. Students had the opportunity to participate in the Days of Service Program in the inner city. There they dug a community garden, built a retaining wall, built a chicken coop and planted trees. To finish off their busy convention students attended several more sessions at the convention site listening to numerous motivational speakers. The National Convention was an experience of a lifetime and exposed members to the massive scope of the FFA at the national level. There are over 669,000 FFA members in the United States and the numbers are growing. Pictured above, left to right, are Dylan Mullenbach, Jamie Johnson, Opal Troxel, Jonathon Hanson, Kelsie Lamp, Melody Gossman, Ashley Sheely and MiKayla Emanuel.

Elementary PBIS Happenings
This month we kicked off the Playground Matrix at the Elementary School. Our focus is to be respectful, responsible, and safe on the playground each day. If the students are caught following the playground matrix they are given a clip. They get to “spend” their clips at the Rebel Store which is open every Friday from 11:20-12:30. There are a variety of items to purchase at the store. We are always looking for volunteers to help in the store. If you are able to help out please email Deanne Bauserman at email@example.com

Southland Elementary Food Shelf Collection
FFA Donates to Wounded Warrior Project
Over 20 Southland FFA members collected corn donations from local farmers in the Southland and Lyle School Districts in October. Students collected corn, sold it and one of the their charities they are giving to this year is the Wounded Warrior project. Students from the Southland Chapter voted to donate $3000 towards this great cause. The Wounded Warrior Project as seen on TV helps wounded and disabled veterans by helping them with therapy, treatments and household needs. The chapter recognizes all the local veterans and their sacrifices they have given over the years and they wanted to give back. The chapter will also be donating to Camp Courage yet this year. Thanks to all who donated and made this possible.
A pair of black wire-rimmed glasses were found outside in front of the Early Childhood Building. They can be picked up at the building.
On Saturday, November 14th, the MS and HS Robotics teams departed at 5:30 am for Mankato East High School to compete in their first robotics VEX Robotics Tournament of the year. After 7 preliminary rounds and out of 35 teams, the MS team was in 8th place, and the HS team was in 6th, advancing them to the finals. Both teams did a phenomenal job representing Southland, and the HS team made it to the semifinal round before being eliminated. Students have been meeting several days a week after school (in addition to the summer camp), and are excited to make modifications to their robot before their next competition on January 9th.
