Chromebook Reviews for Families

As we have added more technology into the district, via the renovation, we have been asked, "What chromebook should I purchase my child?" So if you are thinking of purchasing your child a chromebook this holiday season, here is a link to information about chromebooks that may be helpful in making your choice.

Highlighting SHS Success -Students Giving Back

This week our boys and girls basketball and boys and girls swimming and diving programs each completed service projects. The boys and girls basketball teams partnered with Team Strongsville, Target, and the Strongsville Food Bank to adopt community families in need this holiday season. The teams participated in goods at the gazebo, food drives at basketball games, and went shopping at Target last week to purchase items for 133 children in our community.

Our swimming and diving teams participated in the annual splash out cancer event. This is the 8th year of our participation. This year our teams raised money in the name of Kelly Kinney and presented a check for over $17,000 to the Seidman Cancer Cancer. Overall our swim teams have raised over $100,000 for this cause.

Thank you to our students for leading by example and showing us what it means to care.
