Chicago: Teen Edition
Thank you to all who came and supported the Theatre Department at Souhegan!
Spring is officially here! ⚘ Signs of hope are popping up all around us as the first buds are beginning to form on trees and the crocus plants are reaching up towards the sunshine. Last week gave us a real taste of what’s to come! Many of us associate spring with cleaning. We open up windows, declutter our homes and try to spruce up around us. If we do that for our homes, why not do it for our mind? Here is an easy acronym you can use to remember how to honor spring, as well as your mind, body and spirit.
S: Space--identify a time/place where you can purposefully take space for yourself.
P: Pause: Take a moment to pause and breathe deeply. Just a few minutes can help you re-center
R: Recognize: recognize and acknowledge what changes are happening around you. Sit with it, knowing there are things you can control, and things you cannot. Breathe into it.
I: Intention: Listen to your body and mind. What brings you happiness and joy? Lean into that with intention, and find ways to infuse more of those activities into your daily routine.
N: Nature: With warmer weather and longer days, find time to go outside. The Vitamin D your mind and body crave awaits you on your back porch, local park or wooded trails.
G: Giggle: The act of laughing releases endorphins, also known as the “feel good” chemicals, and gives our bodies a nice boost!
Be Well, Sheelu

Senior Project Reminders

Research should include a variety of print and electronic sources as well as personal experiences. Panel meetings will take place before school between 7:00-8:15am. Please contact your student’s mentor or the senior project coordinators, Ryan Lemieux and Kathy Maddock if you have any questions.
Our State is a better place because of the rich cultural and linguistic assets of our students. This award allows districts to acknowledge the achievements of New Hampshire’s bilingual students. Nationally adopted by 40 other states across the country, the Seal of Biliteracy is an award given by a school, district, or state in recognition of students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation.

The Amherst PTA Play is coming up soon and the SHS PTSA Project Graduation Committee is hosting the concession stand to fundraise for Project Graduation. Senior Parents can not help out on the night of the event, so this is a perfect opportunity to chip in where and when you can! Junior and Sophomore Parents--this is a great chance to learn what to do to keep this tradition going at SHS! Click here for the link to a Signup Genius where you can donate candy, baked goods, flowers, or time.
Memory Quilt Raffle
The last few years have been a difficult time to fundraise just about anything! Especially "In Person" events, so organizations had to get creative in order to raise monies for various, worthy causes. Our organization, Souhegan High School PTSA is no different and our "creative" endeavor is personal, practical, stunning and best of all, a work of art!
