SHHS Weekly Newsletter 12

Author and theologian H. A. Ironside said, “We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.” When I read this quote, I was reminded of how we've been striving this year to be "Positive in the Present" here at SHHS, and I thought about the supportive praise we  see being heaped upon one another hear at our school between students, faculty, and staff. And as this is a season of thankfulness, we would be remiss if we did not thank you for all that you do in our community to make our school great. You, our PTA , School Community Council, and other parent support groups, are truly fighting discontent and dissatisfaction with your praise and support of our students, faculty, and staff. As administration, faculty, and staff of SHHS, we are truly thankful for your support.

 SHHS Footloose Production: This week the school's production of Footloose came to a close, and our students did a fabulous job with the show. Under  the direction of Ms. Stubbs, the cast and crew delivered a captivating performance that appealed to our hearts and our funny bones as they brought the iconic 80's film back to life on the SHHS stage. Well done cast and crew of the show.  

 SHHS Girls' Basketball: The girls' basketball team tipped off the season with a dominant performance against Snow Canyon HS last Friday night. The final score was 58-31, and Coach Francom was pleased with the team's performance, calling the victory a "good team win."

Skyhawk Happenings:

  • Our student  Ammon Clark continues to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House by collecting pop tabs from soda cans. We can help Ammon in his collection efforts by bringing our pop tabs to the school and turning them into the front office, the counseling office, and (or) Mrs. Wilder's room.
