Hello SLHS Families,

I hope everyone had an opportunity to spend some time with family and friends during the Thanksgiving Holiday. We had our first quarter parent conferences on November 20th & 21st and want to thank all the parents for taking time out of your schedules to attend the conferences. We had a good turnout and appreciate the interest in your child’s education. 

Over the last couple of months, I have received numerous e-mails from parents expressing their thoughts about the teachers at the SLHS. It is wonderful to hear so many great compliments and appreciation for the work that our teachers do. Thank you for taking the time to let them know how you feel and for sharing it with me. I encourage all parents to share a few complimentary words with any teachers that you feel have made a difference for your child(ren). I also want to extend my appreciation to our parents and guardians for all you do to support us in our work. Educating children effectively requires a partnership between schools and parents, something that I believe we do well. Parents have shown strong support in so many ways and it is very much appreciated.

Our students were busy square dancing in PE class with Mr. Gary Finney calling the steps before Thanksgiving Break. Square dancing is one of our most popular PE units at SLHS and students look forward to this every year. Currently, our winter athletic programs are in full swing, which include Alpine Skiing, Basketball, Hockey, Indoor Track and Nordic Skiing. Please check their schedules on the Athletic website (

The holiday season is here, which is often a busy and stressful time of the year, but is also an exciting time as we anticipate traditions and celebrations. The SLHS Music Department is having their Winter Concert on Monday, December 18th at 7:00 p.m. in the High School Auditorium. We look forward to seeing you all there. 

Please visit the SLHS website to stay up to date on school activities and important dates. I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season and safe journeys for all of your travels.
