IB Middle Years Programme and Spring Time

Hello SLHS Community,

As we enter the Spring sports seasons it seems like winter sports flew by and we missed it by blinking.  So many things to prepare for in the month of March as the year begins to really wind down.  We have our state assessments quickly approaching along with graduation right around the corner.  

I would be remiss by not thanking the tremendous support of all our amazing parent groups and your unwavering giving back to SLHS.  The PTSA treated the staff last with an amazing lunch on the day of parent conferences that was highly appreciated by all.  I truly appreciate each and every one of the community members that I have the opportunity to serve and hope to continue building our community partnership.

Middle Years Programme- IB-  SLHS is excited to partner with Mandalay Middle School to bring the MYP to the SLHS area-  Some videos below to help better understand our vision.

Martin Luther King JR Holiday

I hope you all had a very blessed Holiday as we remember MLK Jr across this nation.  A man who's reputation, perseverance, and hope for humanity changed the way we live today-

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that"

Parent Conferences

SLHS Community,

We're excited to offer a change to our Fall parent conferences.  In years past we offered two evenings of conferences for an average of 3.5 hours per night.  Unfortunately our second evening was always very low attended thus the reason for a shift to one night this year.  Conferences will take place today in the gymnasium from 2:00pm to 7:00pm-

Looking forward to seeing you all this evening.
