Secaucus High School
September 8, 2023
Dear SHS Community,
It is my hope that our students, teachers, and high school families have enjoyed a strong start to the 2023-24 school year. September is a time of fresh beginnings where students have the opportunity to establish good habits, set goals, and embrace new challenges. We encourage our students to bring their best self to the classroom, ready to learn, grow, and make the most of the educational and extracurricular opportunities that lie ahead.
Exciting Start to the School Year
Members of our SGO, along with their advisor, Ms. Kim, were hard at work preparing the main entrance for the first day of school. Students were greeted with a warm welcome with prizes and treats as they entered school on Wednesday. The excitement continued that afternoon as many teachers volunteered to work the carnival and enjoyed watching the glee of our district students. A big thank you to all our staff members for a successful start to the school year!
We are excited to host our annual Back to School Night on Thursday, September 14, 2023 at 6:30 pm. This is an important night for parents/guardians to meet their students’ teachers and learn about the opportunities Secaucus High School has to offer. We will begin the night with a brief meeting in the PAC which will start promptly at 6:30 to review important high school information, events, and initiatives. Please bring your student’s schedule, which can be found on the parent portal, so you can meet each teacher and locate each room. We will move through our daily schedule, beginning with period 1 and ending with period 9. Members of our National Honor Society will be in the hallway to help you navigate through the building.
Members of our PTSA and Patriot Athletic Club will be located in the PAC Atrium to provide families with important information regarding membership and scholarship opportunities. Membership has suffered over the past few years, but we are optimistic that those numbers will increase this school year. Please see attached membership forms for the PTSA & Patriots Athletic Club.
Please use this night to connect with your student’s teachers as it will provide you with a glimpse into the daily experience at Secaucus High School.
