"Ms. Edwards did an amazing job making sure her English students had the STAAR APP up and running on their MacBook in preparation for the Benchmark. It really helped in making the morning start go a lot smoother. " ~ Mrs. Morrison, MacShack

"Rep Your College" Door Contest!

WHAT - We are excited to bring back for the 2nd year our "Rep your Alma Mater Door Decorating Competition!"

WHEN - Judging will take place February 28, 2020, @ 1:00 PM


  • This competition has been designed to engage school staff and students in activities that promote positive community engagement, as well as college and career access and success.

  • We encourage all SHS faculty and staff to participate.


Winning a prize is determined solely based on the highest scores achieved under the Judging Criteria (as defined below). Judges will review each Entry and three winners will be selected based on a composite score using the following criteria:

  • Originality ( 50%) - Originality will be judged based on the uniqueness, inventiveness, creativity and original thought of the door creation.
  • Workmanship (30%) - Workmanship will be judged based on the quality, neatness, and attention to detail given in creating the door decoration that represents your alma mater.
  • Use of Information (20%) – As the door is decorated, consider the facts about your alma mater that would convince students to attend!
  • You may share a door with a fellow faculty member.

Indian Walks! - FEBRUARY 5, 2020


SHOW, DON'T TELL - When you tell rather than show, you simply inform your reader of information rather than allowing them to deduce anything. Showing would paint a picture the reader could see in her mind's eye. Please encourage students to show, don't tell!

FEEDBACK - We will do our best to leave a sticky note on each sample displayed at the next Indian Walks.

The next Indian Walks is February 5, 2020.

Nuts and Bolts

Restrooms - We are asking all teachers to help us during passing periods by walking into restrooms. Just a quick visit to keep our students on the up and up!

Accommodation Center - Please check student accommodations and if they don't have accommodation center access STOP sending them.

TELPAS - Please review the TELPAS Training Slides and collection calendar below. (Department Heads, please make sure all new staff understands their responsibilities in collecting samples.)
