Concert Choir Traveled to NYC over Spring Break

Concert Choir members traveled to New York City over spring break to tour such sites as Chinatown, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Park, the Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Harlem and the 9/11 Memorial.

The choir students also performed in concert at St. John the Divine Cathedral, the world’s largest Gothic cathedral. They did an excellent job representing our school and received MANY compliments! A special “thank you” to the parent chaperones who came along as well as the SWDCSC administration, community and parents for helping to make the trip a reality!

Our annual SHS choir Spring Concert and awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 3 at 3:00 p.m. and admission is FREE! We hope you are able to attend!

Board highlights post-graduation plans

English Teacher Mrs. Neu and Media Specialist Mrs. Lyons created this display that allows for every student with a post-secondary route to be placed on the wall with their geographic location attached. Included among the traditional institutions of higher education, this year's seniors have also chosen such educational avenues as Paul Mitchell Cosmetology School, The Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and EMT Training. Mrs. Neu hopes to add to the lists so future students will be able to connect to former Southridge graduates as they make their college choices and move on to their next stage of life.

Juniors may lose chance at NCAA DI Qualifier status this semester

Junior year student-athletes are in their final semester (plus summer school) to meet the NCAA’s new “10/7” core course credit requirements.

Students failing to meet this new credit requirement, even those with a 4.0 GPA, will be ineligible for DI Qualifier status and will lose the opportunity to play as a college freshman.

The NCAA 2016 DI and 2018 DII academic eligibility changes are significant and are now impacting every student-athlete with college athletic aspirations. Those not tracking their NCAA core course credits and core course GPA every semester are risking their future collegiate eligibility.

We can help! Our simple and affordable online software solution is endorsed by the NIAAA and used by high schools in 47 states.

Call, email or submit the information request form today to learn more and set your student-athletes on a path toward athletic opportunity and academic success.
