A new school site for the Elementary School and Preschool has been secured! Southlands is proud to announce that the Elementary School and Preschool will be relocating to a school site less than 2 miles away from the current campus. This is an answer to prayer and a clear example of God’s provision, once again affirming His commitment to His school.
The new school site is located in Rowland Heights at 18550 Farjardo St. We’re so thankful to our parents and students for being extremely patient and supportive as we’ve prayed, sought His will, bid on campuses, and now seen God’s hand move. Your partnership and commitment helps to ensure that SCS students have a place to grow and develop emotionally, psychologically, intellectually, and most importantly, spiritually. If you have any questions regarding the new location, feel free to stop by or call the office.
Roses and red, violets are blue, I’m going to sing a song just for you! On Valentine’s Day, our middle school students and the 5th grade class were able to spend some quality time together playing festive games and activities. All the games and Valentine’s candy led to the highlight of the day, a huge karaoke party! Brave students channeled their inner American Idol in order to belt songs out in front of their classmates and teachers. Whether alone or in groups, the students had a great time letting loose to sing and dance up on the big stage.
On Senior Servant Day, superheroes, cartoon characters, sports figures, and other famous people descended upon the SCS campus. Seniors, dressed up in the silliest costumes, were at the mercy of the lower classmen, teachers, or staff members who adopted them for the day. Doing everything from getting coffee and lunch to pulling friends around campus in a wagon, seniors had to submit to every demand!
Brushstrokes and Lyrics
Friday night’s event Brushstrokes and Lyrics was an incredible time that showcased our Southlands talent. Wow, and we have some very talented students! The proceeds from this event go towards the drilling of a fresh water drinking well to be drilled in Guatemala in partnership with “With This Ring.” We are so proud of our Southlands students for raising $442.87 towards this endeavor!
We celebrate the “Reason for the Season” Jesus the King! A miracle born of a virgin, in manger. God’s gift to humanity. A Savior. You and I needed a Savior—One who would and could die for our sins.
In spite of all the challenges of our day, let’s view Christmas as a celebration. There’s no better time of the year to enjoy the color that enhances our neighborhoods and streets. At no other time of the year do the faces of little children glow with such wonder. And there’s nothing like the music of Christmas! They’re playing our songs in grocery stores, elevators, shopping malls, and on every radio station: “Joy to the world! The Lord is come.” They’re talking about our Savior. It’s our message on their lips.
And let’s not forget to share with others your faith in Jesus Christ. At no other season is the unbeliever’s heart softer toward the message of Jesus. Be aware of that. Stay sensitive to that. Be ready to speak, to be a witness.
We invite you, your friends and family to experience our SECONDARY CHRISTMAS CONCERT & ELEMENTARY CHRISTMAS MUSICAL.
December 4th, 6:30pm, we will feature our High School & Middle School Choirs, Faithful Heart, and the Music Club.
Then, come enjoy the always delightful ELEMENTARY CHRISTMAS MUSICAL – December 13th, 6:30pm, Featuring Preschool through 5th Grades.
Merry Christmas and God bless you!
Our Preschool students really enjoyed a recent visit from the Fire Department. This is not only a fun time for our preschoolers but a chance for them to learn about the principles of how to respond during an emergency. The fire fighters spoke to the children about what to do if fire gets on them; ”Stop. Drop and Roll!” We talked about calling 911 in an emergency and some of our children made 911 hats to help them remember what phone number to call in case of an emergency.
The children loved seeing the fire truck up-close. One of our students, Sarena Yu from Mrs. Jackie’s Class, was outfitted in the protective gear a fireman wears when confronting a fire. Sarena was a trooper and was able to stand up under the weight of the gear which usually weighs 60 to 70 pounds.
It was a fun and educational time.
Southlands Christian Schools proudly welcomed to its campus His Majesty King Iguru I of the Bunyoro-Kitara Kingdom of Uganda, Prince Rukidi of the Mitego Kingdom, and the king’s Royal Secretary on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
The King and Prince are in the US as guests of Arche’ International, a nonprofit organization that helps transform communities into self -sustaining entities. The King is investigating programs to improve the education and health of his people in Uganda. The purpose of the visit to Southlands was to gain knowledge regarding the school’s Overseas Division and online accredited diploma, which enables students to earn an American college-preparatory high school diploma without having to leave their local school. With SCS Overseas Divisions’ unique curriculum and program model, students in other countries are able to prepare themselves academically and linguistically to attend some of America’s most prestigious universities.
School representatives said it was their sincere honor as a school to host the King’s visit, and they are delighted that he would consider this program as a benefit for his people.

Glenn Duncan, President/CEO of Southlands Christian Schools was inducted into the Rotary Club of Walnut Valley on October 23, 2012. Mr. Gary C.K. Huang, a Taiwanese national and the future President of Rotary International, performed the induction. To have Mr. Huang induct Mr. Duncan was very fitting since Southlands Christian Schools services many international students and operates multiple international school programs within Asia.
Mr. Duncan was also honored with the presence of Dr. Sylvia V. Whitlock, Governor of District 5300 Rotary International, who happens to be the first female Governor of Rotary International. Dr. Whitlock volunteers her time and efforts to raise funds and awareness for poverty-stricken areas in India with the intent of advancing education offered to young girls within these areas.
This event marks an amazing step for a successful partnership between Mr. Duncan, Mr. Huang, Dr. Whitlock, and the entire Rotary Club. Mr. Duncan is pleased to be a part of an organization that shares the desire to make this world a better place for the next generation. Additionally, SCS would like to express special thanks to Mr. Peter Pirritano, President of Rotary Club of Walnut Valley, for this special induction of Mr. Glenn Duncan.
