Student Leader News

Each of our student leader groups will be taking a month to contribute what they see happening at Southland & to tell us more about their contributions to our school. This month is our Announcement Team. Here is what they have to say.

“I love how we work together. We come up with a joke.”

“I like talking over the intercom.”

“Every Wednesday four students speak to the school and tell the announcements, school lunch, the four big rules, what is happening that day, and the school song, and a joke.”

“I make people happy in the mornings.”

“I like this team because I enjoy speaking in front of people and announcing things.”    

Southland Student Leaders

January Leader Chat Slideshow

Our guests for our January Leader Chat were the Student Body Officers from Riverton High School.  They shared different ways to be a leader with our students. They also agreed that sometimes being a leader is uncomfortable. Here are some of their suggestions:

Callie Howell, Artist:  We can all take care of our surroundings, for example pick up trash.

Matt Van Detta, Communications: Listen to your peers  - Don't be afraid to do the little things like holding a door for someone.

Bryce Hansen, Technology:  What you do get's noticed, especially service or helping out when needed.

Brian Pham, President:  Doing service is a great way to be a leader, Silver Rush was able to raise much needed funds for local charities.

McKay Kimball, Finances:  Learn new skills to use resources effectively. Be an example to those around you.

Lizzie Wood, Student Recognition:  Everyone needs a friend, sometimes you can be the one that puts people who need each other together.

Larsen Williams, Historian:   Get everyone involved, one person can't do it all.
