Important upcoming date:
March 23 Early Dismissal-11:55 am
Campus Closed 12:00-4:00 pm
Recently, as you may recall, St. Henry District High School was asked by the local police department to go on a hard lockdown due to an event that was happening nearby. This was done as a precaution; fortunately, there were no immediate safety concerns. This event reminded us of how important it is for our staff to be prepared in the unfortunate event that an immediate threat was to occur on campus.
Local law enforcement has agreed to provide our staff with specific training as well as provide tools and resources to help us be prepared in the case of an emergency situation. Therefore, we will schedule an early release day on Thursday, March 23, to train our staff. Lunch will not be served on this day. No students will be permitted to be on campus from 12:00 pm-4:00 pm, and all after-school activities will not start until 4:00 pm that day.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we continue to help provide a safe learning environment for all our students and staff.

CRU BASH - WE NEED YOU! One of the things people repeatedly say they love most about SHDHS is the community - the community of students, the community of teachers & staff, the community of parents, and the community of alumni. To foster and grow that Crusader community spirit that we all know and love, we need to do things together, celebrate, and gather together. This is why we have brought back the CRU BASH in person (largely based on your requests and feedback!). To move forward with having these events in person, we need people to register, attend, and enjoy themselves. Please consider coming to the BASH and celebrating the Crusader Community with us. We have until TUESDAY of next week to give a final headcount; if that number is below the contracted amount, the FEC will have to pay the difference. Please register today; it is easy and promises an amazing night of Crusader community fun! https://e.givesmart.com/events/u1m/
CRU BASH - WE NEED YOUR STUDENTS! We are looking for dedicated and reliable students to work the event to allow our parents, teachers/staff a good night off.

Crusaders of the Week
Mr. Trame nominates Anay Sehgal PreCal's Crusader of the Week. Senior Anay Sehgal rises like a Phoenix above all others regarding students who care deeply about their education, the desire to learn more, and the quality of their work and performance. Anay's determination and commitment to understanding PreCalculus content have served as an inspiration. Anay is incessant in seeking out extra resources and solutions to challenging problems. Anay cares about his welfare and wills the good of his classmates and teammates. His positivity and enthusiasm are contagious. Through his propensity for doing the right thing, his commitment to excellence, and his treating others with kindness and respect, Anay has created a foundation for future success at the post-secondary level and beyond! Congratulations Anay!!!!
Mrs. Maloney nominates Jack Grayson AP Bio Crusader of the Week. One of my favorite sayings is a line from JD Salinger's book, Catcher in the Rye - "You're a gentleman and a scholar, kid." The person that comes to mind when I hear that line is senior Jack Grayson. Jack's respectful demeanor, outstanding work ethic, attentiveness in class, quiet good humor, and solid Christian values stand out, even in a class of fabulous AP BIO scholars. Although his classmates call him Skipper, I find the nickname 'Gentleman and Scholar' suits him best. Congratulations Jack!
Sophomores are practicing what they know about similar figures by designing scale drawings and blueprints. This is a fun way to incorporate math concepts into real-world situations!
