Hello SLHS Families,
It is hard to believe that we are entering November! November means the end of the first quarter and the middle of the college application season. Thank you to the Student Council for organizing two fun weeks of homecoming.The first week was a huge success and looking forward to the second week. On Monday and Tuesday, we recognized five rooms for winning the decorating contest. 9th (203 & 205), 10th (204), 11th (116) & 12th (118). I’d also like to congratulate the Class of 2023 & the Class of 2024 for winning the Tug of War competitions on Thursday & Friday. Thanks to all the students and staff members for all their time and effort.
