Crusader of the Week
Miss Vollmer nominates Braeden Francis for Crusader of the Week for English II. Braeden has shown immense growth this year both in maturity and classroom skills. Braeden is disciplined in doing his best, and his resiliency is to be admired. He asks questions when he does not understand and pushes to find the right answer and broaden his understanding of English content and life in general. He has done a great job of learning to see more than what is just on the surface of the text, and his ability to make connections will help him succeed as he continues his journey at SHDHS! Thanks for all your hard work, Braeden, and congrats!
Mrs. Poat’s Junior Religion Crusader of the Week is Natalee Tracey. Natalee cheerfully starts the day with Religion class. She goes out of her way to show an interest in both the subject and to extend compassion and grace to others. She lives and applies the principles that she learns. She has a servant’s heart, a strong work ethic, and a sense of humor. Thanks, Natalee, for your classroom leadership and openness to learning and living the faith. You exemplify our school theme of arising from the past and going forward in faith. Congratulations Natalee!
Junior Religion classes were tasked with being the "staff" of a homeless shelter, making the tough decision about who would be sheltered for the night and who would be turned away for lack of space. It was not an easy choice, as all people have the right to dignity and basic needs. They learned that there are more shelters and rescue services (locally and nationally) for dogs than for human beings.
This Project is Burnin' Up!
Miss Vollmer's English II classes recently finished Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The general idea of this dystopian classic is that books are banned, and firemen START fires instead of stopping them. The summative assessment on colors and symbolism was to create a Netflix original preview for the book! It looks like we've got some future Hollywood designers on our hands!
The last day to register for the SHDHS Volleyball Camp is MONDAY, MAY 15th. All sessions have been expanded so register now before it fills up! The volleyball staff, alumni & players love to share their passion of volleyball. Hope to see many future Crusaders June 5th-8th
