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.

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.
