Hey Juniors and Seniors - you will have the option to take the SAT here at SHS on April 13th. Your parents already received an email about it. You do not have to take the SAT, but we will be sending you sign up info soon so we have the correct numbers and tests on that day. Talk to Kramer, Lauer, Robinson or Leardi with any questions - or ask any teacher how that’s going to work. We will be using the whole building that day so no-one but testers will come to school on that Tuesday and Wednesday. Ask any of your teachers what I mean, or talk to your parents.

All SHS Students: You received an email announcement about watching a bus safety video. Your Canvas has the Youtube link to view the video. Even if you don’t ride a yellow school bus, please view it in the name of safety and preparation. Your 5th hour teacher will give you reminders and time in the next two weeks. Thank you!!

After School Tutoring is available from 3:30-4:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.   Students can access tutoring by clicking on the Academic Center located in Canvas.

Congratulations to SHS’s novice Scholastic Bowl players Arnav Negrecha, Srihari Gurugubelli , Faizaan Shaikh, Aliyah Harishmi, and Arya Sreedhar on their national 9-0 win over the weekend on the TRAILS novice tournament.
Tryouts for baseball begin Monday from 11-1:30 for juniors and seniors and 1:30-4 for freshman and sophomores at the Lincoln Land practice field behind their main diamond. Please e-mail Coach Steinwart (see the baseball website for contact info) to let him know of your intent to try out if you have not been to contact days so you can be contacted for indoor times in case of inclement weather. You MUST have a current physical on file with the main office at SHS (within the last 13 mos.) along with an athletic permit card turned in there to participate. You may bring this with you, but you cannot try out unless both are turned in.
And now the Pledge of Allegiance!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
