Personalized Learning in SHS
MARCH (TIGER) MADNESS @ SHS HIGH!
- Student Walkout
- Yost's class at the Apple Store in Lenox
- Lewis' and Dr. J's classes doing an International Google Hangout
- Soccer victories
SHS participated in the nationwide 17-minute student walkout in remembrance of the one month mark of the Parkland, FL Valentine's day incident.
From Mrs. Yost:
Students traveled to the Apple Store at Lenox Mall for a programming Field Trip to create their own podcasts. Students used this learning experience to get trained by an Apple expert on using GarageBand to create their own content as an Engage experience of the E3 model.
From Dr. J:
Ms. Lewis’ second block and my AP Biology classes joined a Google hangout session yesterday along with other classrooms from different locations, hosted by Mr. Jesse and the speaker was an environmental engineer Mr. Simon from Australia. He gave us a Global perspective of Water with his first hand project experiences in various work sites like Cambodia, Australia, Africa and California.
From Mr. Slaven:
We are currently 4-0 in the region (which makes us number 1 in the region!) and 6-2 overall! This is already turning out to be a historic season for Stockbridge High School so I encourage all of you to come out and support our Boys and Girls Soccer teams!

Assistant Principals' Corner

Attached is an “Everyday Preventive Action” plan that can assist in fighting the spread of germs such as the FLU. As well as a “Too Sick for School” information sheet. Please take the time out to read the attached flyers especially since we are in "flu season". Also a reminder that no student should be wearing a mask unless they have provided documentation to the clinic and have received approval from an administrator. Please feel free to contact the clinic if you have any additional concerns or questions. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
