Dear Crusader Family,
Before Christmas break begins, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our faculty, staff, and students for a great first semester. As we head into the second semester, I want to make you aware of a few upcoming changes. We will be utilizing our new SOS flex system. In this system, teachers set up workshops for students to attend. The students will have plenty of opportunities to take advantage of this time by attending study sessions, peer tutoring, using the gym for exercise or grabbing a snack in the cafeteria. The student must sign up for the workshops, so be sure to ask them about taking advantage of this opportunity! Also, beginning in the second semester, every Tuesday (beginning January 10), we will offer Mass in our chapel to faculty and students at 7:00 am. I want to thank Father Jason for volunteering his time and providing our students with an opportunity to celebrate the Eucharist each week with their peers and teachers.
As we celebrate the birthdate of our Lord Savior, Jesus Christ, I hope you take this time to relax and spend time with your family. We also pray for SHDHS community members who have lost a loved one. Please remember our administration, counselors, and teachers are always here for the students and will continue to be servant leaders of Christ. Our doors are an open line of communication with our students. I hope you have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. Luke 2:10-11
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Grant Brannen, Principal
SHDHS Faculty and Staff

Culinary Club ends the First Semester by making Gingerbread Houses!
The Culinary Club closed a very successful first semester with two sessions devoted to gingerbread houses. Chefs Summy and Coronado demonstrated gingerbread techniques, including using crushed Jolly Ranchers to make "glass." Because gingerbread is time-intensive, club members used graham crackers, royal icing, and countless sweets to create their miniature homes. Creativity abounded! We saw gingerbread bridges, roller coasters, and a pickleball court!
Anyone wishing to join the Culinary Club for the 2nd semester should pay attention to announcements when we return in January. Club membership will be open from January 5-11. See Mrs. Gonzalez or Mrs. Coronado for details.
We wish you a joyous and delicious holiday from our kitchen to yours!

PSAT Scores are Available for Juniors and Sophomores who opted-in to the PSAT.
Official PSAT/NMSQT score reports are now available. Students have been given information on accessing their score reports via the College Board website. Please note that students should be the only ones creating accounts; when a parent creates an account for their student, it can cause major issues logging in for future use. Please sit down with your student to make sure they log in and review the report together.
Do note that if a student has an account and they are unable to log in, they will need to do "forgot username/password" and potentially call Student Services at 866-315-6068; unfortunately, the College Board does not give us access to student account information, so we are not able to help with login.
For details on how to interpret the score report, including a video demonstration, go to: https://satsuite.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt/scores/understanding-scores/your-score-report-explained? SFMC_cid=EM854495-&rid=47609599
The counseling office will have a PSAT Scores Flex workshop for students on January 10, 2023, to further review the scores and what they mean. All students who took the PSAT will be in attendance. If you have questions in the meantime, contact your student's counselor.
