"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 January 31, 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.

"Greatness isn’t achieved by worrying what everyone thinks of you. Don’t look outside. The praise, criticism, expectations; it’s all just noise. Look inside to your heart and soul and do it with love and create greatness from the inside out."
