Congratulations to Ryan Hill, Courtney Jones and Katie Kendall on being selected to the 2015 Indiana All State Choir! They will perform during the month of January at the Indiana Music Educators Association Conference in Fort Wayne.

A VERY special thank you to the many choir parents, students and community members that helped make the annual choir yard sale such a success. Many thanks to the Southwest Dubois County School Corporation for letting us use Memorial Gym to sort and tag donated goods, Teen Outback for allowing us to have the yard sale on their lawn and Central Christian Church and Steinkamp’s for loaning us tables to use the day of the sale.

Jasper Regional College Fair

Monday, Oct. 6th 2014 at 6-7:30pm

VUJC Ruxer Center

A college fair provides a great opportunity
to do some one-stop shopping. Meet with representatives from colleges around the state and explore the educational options
available to you as you look for the college
that meets your educational goals, fits your lifestyle, and is within your budget.



Eastern time

At 7:30 learn about financial aid available through federal, state, and university programs.



Just a reminder that seniors may take one college visit per semester and that absence will be excused if they complete the required paperwork. The “College Visitation” form can be picked up in guidance area and it must be completed and returned to Ms. Wahl at least three days prior to the visit. The senior is also required to bring verification from the college of the visit.


Seniors may now have their transcripts sent electronically. The student must make an account at Once an account is made, the student may request to have their transcript sent electronically.



Each year Indiana celebrates “College Go Week.” This year it is the week of September 22 -26. To celebrate that week, the SHS homeroom teachers will be asked to talk to their students on Monday about the importance of high school preparation for college and what they, the teachers, did to prepare for their college experience. Tuesday will be “wear your favorite college sweatshirt day, “Wednesday will be “wear your favorite college hat day,” and Thursday will be dress for success day. On Friday in homeroom, each student will be given a how to prepare for college guide.




The practice SAT will be given here at SHS on Wednesday October 15. All sophomores will be taking the test as well as those juniors who paid the fee to re-take the test. The PSAT results will then be returned to SHS and the counselors will review the results with the students .


The ASVAB is the career interest inventory test that is administered, free of charge, by the military. This test will be given to all juniors on Thursday, October 23 here at SHS. The results of the test are meant to provide information about the student’s career aptitudes, which, in turn, can help determine a student’s future career goals.

Raider FCA Co-Sponsor Shawn Schaefer and Jace Rasche address club members at a recent meeting. Brett Bardwell, Southridge Athletic Director, also co-sponsors the group.


Fellowship of Christian Athletes, otherwise known as Raider FCA, started off with a bang this year. 126 students turned out for our kick-off meeting where they heard from their Executive Board members, learned what FCA is all about, and voted on a club t-shirt design.

A few weeks later, Jace Rasche, area director for Young Life, came to share a message with FCA members about their ability to be leaders and change the world through "lollipop moments". Raider FCA has great momentum and expects it to continue building for the rest of the school year!

We will also be selling Threads of Hope bracelets on Friday's at lunch to benefit victims of natural disasters in the Philippines. All bracelets are hand made and each dollar we collect goes to support local economies and families. Cost is $2 a piece or 3 for $5.

Recycle Club

The Raider Recycle Club is off and running! Our membership has grown considerably from last year, with 31 members now signed up. The members are broken up into small teams with a collective effort to gather and recycle plastic, cardboard, paper, and newspapers/magazines throughout the high school.

This group of students understands the commitment to be a part of something bigger than themselves! Their efforts make Southridge and the Huntingburg community a better place to be.
