From the Principal's Desk

SCHS Begins the 2nd Semester, January 24th!


I am very proud of the active instruction provided by our teachers and the level of engagement of our students.


The first semester has been challenging. All of us returned to full days of instruction, an increased amount of course content being taught, and higher expectations for student performance. This semester has been one of growth.


As we complete student exams and transition to the 2nd Semester I ask all families to please:


- Regularly, talk to your student about schoolwork and upcoming events


- Expect your student to show you how each classroom works, giving you access to web pages, Google Classroom, Blackboard, and Skyward.


- Help your student remain healthy by following good hygiene in school and at home.


- Encourage your student to drink water throughout the day, eat balanced meals (school breakfast and lunch continue to be free for all students), and to turn off electronic devices before going to bed.


- Establish routines and expectations for completing schoolwork during the school day, using the student center at the end of the day, or immediately upon arriving at your home.


- Insist that your student, when they have questions or need clarification, reach out to their teachers/counselors during class time or before the end of the school day. By addressing concerns in a timely manner most anxiety and frustration can be eliminated.


Looking out to the upcoming semester, please consider these items:


-SCHS Doors open at 7:15am - see map below


-Class begins at 7:26am - see clock schedule below


-Free breakfast and lunch available to all students


-Little Shop of Horrors, The SCHS Musical will be presented February 10th-12th


-Mid Winter Break/ Wellness Weekend is February 18th – 21st


-Spring Break is March 28-April 6


-Spring State Testing:

April 13, 2022 - 11th Gr. SAT

April 14, 2022 - 11th Gr. WorkKeys; 10th Gr. PSAT10; 9th Gr. PSAT 9


Please take a moment to look at links to school information and events, a few photos from the first semester, and to review important items related to the second semester.


If you have questions, please contact your Counselor, Mr. Rutledge, or me, by email. One of us will respond to you.


Respectfully,

Ronald C. Miller, Principal
