Crusaders of the Week
My greatest honor is to nominate Magdalene Jump for Crusader of the Week for Geometry. Mrs. Vaillancourt notes not only is Magdalene an excellent math student, but she always goes above and beyond to show kindness and compassion to everyone in the classroom. From sharing pencils to emailing notes, Magdalene is always the first to volunteer to help a fellow student. I have come to rely on her greatly in class and will miss her next year. Magdalene, it has been an absolute pleasure to teach you this year, and I wish you the best in the years to come. You are a rock star!!!
I am honored to give Crusader of the Week for Art 3 to Emma Linkugel. Emma is an exceptional artist, an extremely hard worker, a great time manager, and a sweet and funny person to have in class. Mrs. VonHandorf appreciates Emma's incredible creativity, fantastic attention to detail, and willingness to take and give constructive criticism. WAY TO ROCK! Emma is just awesome.
Mr. Fay nominates Emma Fischer for Crusader of the Week due to her perseverance in Chemistry Honors and eagerness to understand the concepts rather than just earning good grades. Nearly every day in class, Emma asks clarifying questions to ensure she comprehends the ideas properly. She is always ready to lend a hand, helping her peers understand the content. Her amiable demeanor is a welcome addition to the class, and it often brightens Mr. Fay's day when she offers a cheery "Thank you" after class. Congratulations, Emma!
Detective work in AP Gov
Mrs. Kaiser-Munday's 6th-period AP Government students are using their sleuthing skills after the exam to determine the culprit of a murder mystery. They examine clues, find evidence, and look at timelines to observe different outcomes of this crime.
This week several SHDHS senior and junior Anatomy students went to Immaculate Heart of Mary School to help 7th-grade science students dissect the dogfish shark as their end-of-the-year project. SHDHS students served as table leaders to guide students through the dissection and assist the 7th graders with structure identifications. This was a fabulous learning opportunity for all students - thanks to Mrs. Mary Ann Robbins, IHM science teacher, for the invitation!
Culinary Club's Final Feast
On Wednesday, May 17, the Culinary Club wrapped up a record year with one last meal. Club members brought dishes to share and feast on salad, kibbeh, chili, buffalo chicken dip, breadsticks, and many desserts, including sopapilla cheesecake.
We wish the best to our ten graduating seniors: Riley Bowen, Allyson Egan, Moira Fagarang, Reagan Fredrick, Julia Hudepohl, Kaelyn King, Faye Kirchgaessner, Christina Marsh, Isabelle McCarthy, and Katelyn Payne. May there be many delicious meals in your future. God bless!
Cinco de Mayo
The Spanish 2 classes celebrated Cinco de Mayo last week. Students researched the history of this holiday and then brought a cultural contribution to our celebration. These included members of the band playing a traditional Mexican song, students making pinatas, decorations, artwork, and of course, lots of delicious Mexican dishes and beverages.
Spanish Club hosted an event last Wednesday to learn more about dances in the Spanish-speaking world. A Colombian dance troupe performed for the club in the auditorium and then taught the students how to do the traditional cumbia dance from their country and about their costumes. The students and dancers enjoyed their time together in this fun learning experience.

"Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious," said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, "because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 55,000 students participating in 2021."
St. Henry District High School students have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers Elizabeth Hasken and Ruth Coronado.
The National Spanish Examinations are administered yearly in grades 6 through 12 and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
On May 16, St. Henry District High School held its first annual Academic Scholarship Signing. Over 30% of the senior class qualified for this event, where we celebrated with family and friends. Students qualified by earning at least 50% of tuition or being admitted to a selective college. Congratulations to all of these fantastic students.
