National Elementary Honor Society

What is it? 

Southlands has established a chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) to recognize our most outstanding students. In addition to academic, NEHS members possess strong leadership skills, display a good sense of character, and demonstrate service activities to the school and community.
