Administration To Host Virtual Back to School Brunch For Parents
Graduation and Post Secondary Planning: A Webinar For Seniors & Parents
As one can expect it has been very busy in the counseling office to start the year. Schedule changes will be completed by Tuesday and the students seem to be settling into their classes. 

On September 14th we kick off the Senior Year with a Virtual Senior Parents Night at 6:00pm, please check your email on Monday for the Zoom link. We will discuss all of the options a student may take after high school including employment and the military in addition to the college application timeline, letters of recommendation, Scoir and the Common Application. Counselors will then begin hosting college labs in person or on zoom to help students with applications. Students will receive an email with the link to sign up as well as the expectations for being in the building. In addition, counselors will be meeting individually with every senior via zoom to complete their Intent to Graduate forms.

Once again, we will host over 30 colleges for our Virtual Annual College Fair on September 23rd from 11-1. The list of colleges represented will be on the high school website on the counseling office page. Students will be emailed a list of links for the colleges that are attending. Both Juniors and Seniors will be allowed to attend.

Speaking of which, the counseling office has a new look on the website! You will find many links to helpful resources including College Board, Scoir, ACT, Khan Academy and NCAA. Please check back frequently as we will be adding links for mental health resources, internship opportunities and scholarship information.  

Sanborn is offering an opportunity for Seniors to take the SAT for free on October 14th. We will be offering the exam in person at the high school and all seniors are expected to participate; however, you can opt your child out of the exam. If you would like to opt out, please complete the form using the button below. We will have more information about expectations for being in the building as we get closer to the day.

Speaking of SAT’s, Ms. Evans (our district’s new secondary math coordinator) will be offering a free 5-week SAT prep course for the math sections of the SAT on Fridays from 10 - 11:30 am. All levels welcome: just come ready to do and discuss math! The class will meet on zoom and will be designed to help you meet your goals for the SAT math. Sign up by filling out a short Google Form. After signing up, you’ll be added to the Google Classroom and receive a link to the zoom classroom. 

As always, counselors continue to meet with all students to support them emotionally, academically and socially. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s counselor.

An Athletic Update From Mr. Dawson
At a recent School Board meeting, it was decided that we would participate as fully as possible in athletics this fall. While many details (including revised game schedules) are being worked out, our athletic teams are already participating in summer fitness / skill-building activities, and full-on practice / tryouts will start Sept. 8 for the high school. (Middle School kicks off the 10th). If you have a student-athlete planning to participate this fall, please check out some information here using the link below.

PTO Clothing & Shoe Donation Bins
When you drop your unwanted clothing and shoes off in these bins, the SRHS PTO gets paid based on the weight of the clothing! This is a really easy way to help our school. All PTO proceeds go directly back to programming and scholarships that directly benefit our students. NOTE: Shoes must go in a separate bin.

Did you know? From April of 2015 - May 2017, this fundraiser has helped us raise nearly $2400.00 for the PTO. Help us double that number by sharing this opportunity with your friends, your family, and your neighbors!
