St. Henry District High School would like to congratulate Emma Linkugel, who was named a National Merit Semifinalist!

The SHDHS Golf Outing is starting a new tradition this year. We are combining forces between Athletics and Advancement/Alumni to make this a schoolwide fundraiser to help cover expenses throughout the school. The money from this year’s event will go toward repairs to cafeteria equipment, upgrading safety equipment at the school, and purchasing a Gator for field maintenance.
Over the past 12 years, the SHDHS Golfathon has raised more than $700,000.00 to benefit our athletes and the school. These items include:
- Purchasing a new van for the athletic teams, school clubs, and classes to use throughout the year
- Construction of the stadium press box and storage shed facility behind the softball field
- Renovations and purchase of team equipment for the SHAC
- Installation of soundboards and acoustic panels in the SHDHS gym
- Financial support for the Virgin Mary Grotto, the final piece of the “Building on Excellence, Guided by Faith” expansion project
Since the Golf Outing is now a combined, schoolwide effort, we no longer depend solely on the athletic teams to raise money. We are all taking part. This is where you come in. In addition to monetary donations, we need bottles of higher-end bourbon and items for silent auction baskets. To make this easy and convenient for you, we have created an Amazon Wish List. Please click here to view and purchase items if you feel inclined. The items will ship directly to SHDHS.

Crusaders of the Week
Mr. Patti nominates Junior Ainsley Potter as US History's Crusader of the Week.
"It may be early in the year, but Ainsley Potter has been working hard since day one. Ainsley is incredibly engaged in class whether it is a class discussion, group or individual work, or even a lecture. She regularly adds to the class through questions and insights. Which would lead one to believe that a part of her success is not only a strong work ethic, but a desire and curiosity to better understand the content. She has high expectations for herself, and those around her look forward to seeing her meet those expectations."
Mrs. Vieth nominates senior Molly Krallman as AP English Literature's Crusader of the Week"
The students in the AP Lit class compose a group who has committed itself to being challenged and studying the human condition through great works of literature. Molly Krallman has embraced the challenge and flourished due to her excellent organizational skills, her incisive mind, and her desire to know. She does not fear struggle because she learns from it. Furthermore, she works well with her classmates, and offers supportive commentary in writing groups as well as in discussion. She is a pleasure to have in class.
