The animal science class recently went to a local horse farm for a field trip. Students have been studying horse breeds, colors, care and disease prevention. At the Duane Hill farm they were able to interact with the horses and learn about tack and hoof care. They also learned about basic training techniques and foal management.
The Child Development II Class did a unit on Child Abuse and foster care. Class member Tiffany Rose suggested we earn money for The Hayward Children’s home. The class held bake sales during child abuse prevention month and collected $184.00. Stacy Rupe and Cheryl Moret from the Home came and talked to the class. The class decided to suggest the home use the money for outdoor recreational equipment.

August 3 - Concussion Base Testing
On August 3rd at 2 PM, Southland Public Schools along with Mayo Clinic will once again be offering concussion baseline testing, at no cost to you. This year, it is for all student athletes in grades 7-12 who will be going out for a sport. This is the only time this is offered. While it is not required that your student athlete be there, it is highly recommended that they take these tests. These tests will give the healthcare professionals a base line to go by if your student athlete should sustain a concussion and will allow for a quicker recovery time. Please let us know ASAP if your student athlete cannot attend. It will help us with keeping accurate numbers. To make this as easy as possible for everyone involved, the testing will be administered at three different times by sport. Volleyball/Cross Country will test at 2:00 PM. Football will test at 3:00 PM. All other sports participants who were not tested in the other two sessions will test at 4:00 PM. It is important that everyone make every effort to attend the session they are scheduled for.

Summer Book Club
A group of next year's 3rd and 4th grade students from Southland are participating in a summer book club. Students read a book and then meet to discuss.The first meeting was held at the Mensink home with Kelsey Mensink and Kayla Nelsen facilitating the discussion. The book club was created because several parents were struggling to get their kids to read over the summer and were concerned about them losing momentum. There are currently 11 students in the book club. - Photo courtesy of Michelle Nelsen.
