August 9, 2023

We know that starting the next school chapter can be a little intimidating. What will happen to my friends? Will I remember how to get to Biology? The Cru is here to put our incoming freshman minds at ease with practical information and also a fun way to reconnect with old friends and get to know their new classmates! SHDHS has students entering from many schools across the Tri-State, and this is a fantastic way for them to start living out our motto: Come as Many, Leave as One.
Students will meet their classmates and interact with upperclassmen, student volunteers, and faculty members to make them feel comfortable and excited to enter the halls of SHDHS on their first day!
Please complete the New Cru Day RSVP form by clicking here. RSVP by 7/23/23 to be guaranteed a t-shirt.

SERVICE HOURS REQUIRED
Service Hours - If you have any questions about Service Hours, please direct your questions to Mr. Z at [email protected].
Incoming freshmen should keep a personal record of the service they do.

- The St. Henry District High School Counseling Department, provides services to help students grow academically, socially, and spiritually. The counseling staff are professionally trained educators who work in the best interest of each student. Counselors work with students individually, in small groups, and in grade-level meetings to provide programming that encompasses academic, social/emotional awareness, college/career/vocational advising, and standardized testing.
- Upon enrollment at SHDHS, each student is assigned to a counselor who works, in collaboration with parents, administration, faculty, and staff, to advocate for students with the goal of promoting equity, access, and success. Professional guidelines of confidentiality are maintained in all student and parent-counselor interactions.
The Counseling Department is pleased to announce the following organizational changes:
- Mrs. Molly Roebker will move to the Junior/Senior Counselor position, serving students with last names beginning M-Z.
- We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Sydney Craddock, Freshmen/Sophomore Counselor.
