Dear SLHS Families,

Over the last month, SLHS has had some fun and exciting events going on. These are just some of them.......Dodge Ball Tourny, Circus, Model UN Conference, Wellness Fair, Ski trip to Whiteface, Junior Iron Chef Competition, College Planning Night, Job Fair @ NCCC, Indoor Mini-Golf, Taste of Psychology, Clothing Drive and our Musical. I hope you were able to come and experience the musical, “Fiddler on the Roof” last month. It was outstanding and our students did an amazing job.

March 31st was the last day of the 3rd quarter and grades are available on SchoolTool.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s grades, please contact their teacher(s). If you have not logged onto SchoolTool, I encourage you to do so. You may contact Mrs. Diana Schwartz in the main office (891-4450) or schwartdia@slcs.org for instructions if you are unsure how to do so. SchoolTool affords you the opportunity to not only look at current grades but also monitor your child’s attendance and assignments.

April 26th is Administrative Professionals Day. This day recognizes and celebrates the hard work of secretaries, administrative assistants and other office professionals for their contributions. The SLHS is so lucky to have three amazing women who keep the school running smoothly. Thank you Mrs. McHugh, Mrs. Plumb and Mrs. Schwartz! Their hard work, thoughtfulness and dedication are appreciated, not only on this day, but all year.

The SLHS Parent Faculty Organization (PFO) is a group of parents and teachers that have come together and established a common goal of providing the best school environment for our students. The PFO has done an amazing job over the last five years supporting our teachers and students and I appreciate their commitment and dedication. Parents are always welcome to attend our monthly PFO meetings for updates regarding our school. The April meeting is set for Thursday, April 27th, @ 7:00pm in the SLHS Library.  

The May 6th SAT (deadline to register is April 7th) and June 10th ACT (deadline to register is May 5th) are given here at SLHS. AP exams will be given May 3rd-10th this year and the schedule is posted on the SLHS google calendar. If you have any questions about these exams, please visit the Guidance Office website or contact the Guidance Office at 897-1455. We essentially have seven weeks of instruction until the Regents exams begin on June 13th. Students need to show up and finish the year strong. 

I hope your families have a restful and relaxing Spring Break. Please visit the SLHS website to stay up to date on school activities, assignments and important dates.
