SRHS Update: Week of August 13

Good Morning Parents, Students, Staff, and Friends of Sanborn Regional High School:

Summer must be coming to a close, because each morning when I get up for my 5AM run it is getting darker and darker out. Sigh. Anyways, here are your important announcements for the week:

1. This past week, you should have received your child's official "back to school packet" from the school with forms that must be completed for the first day. I have attached this information to this email.

2. IMPORTANT: All students MUST bring a completed emergency form, signed by a parent or guardian, with them on the first day of school. Students who are participating in athletics must have this form submitted before summer practices start. We are also asking all students who are applying for a parking permit to submit this form with their parking application. 

3. Last week I worked with two outside groups to secure some donations for our school:

- Bob's Discount Furniture has agreed to donate $1,000.00 to SRHS so that we can purchase two flat TV's to mount in the cafeteria so we can stream announcements and pictures of our students doing various things of interest in our school. This will be a great way to promote Sanborn Pride!

- The Seminary Trustees have agreed to donate $11,000.00 to support several teacher-initiated projects and programs, including the purchase of recreation equipment for the patio area for student use during lunch, a printing press for the art department, a new cash register for the school store, banners for the outside of our building, field trip seed money for the new sophomore team, new HD video technology equipment for the Modern media class, and some new "Ready or Not Tots" for the Family and Consumer Science Program.

4. School starts Tuesday August 28 for freshman and Wednesday August 29 for all other grades. Students attending SST should plan to come to school beginning on August 27 to catch the bus to SST. Report times for that are 8:50 for the mid-session program and 11:50 for the PM session on the 27th and 28th.

5. Schedules for all students in grades 10-12 were in the mail a few weeks ago. If you need to request a schedule modification, please use the online form linked below. This will allow the Guidance Department to effectively address your concerns and get back to you in a timely manner with a response.

Schedules for freshman will be mailed out closer to the start of school.

6. The Ice Hockey Booster Club is holding a classic rock n roll band benefit show on August 25th.  It will start at 7pm in the gym with lots of food and drinks.  This is the Saturday before school starts so it should be fun for parents and kids to get together and catch up.  Tickets are a 5$ donation.  Please support a great cause!

7. I have attached two “events calendars” for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year. These may be adjusted slightly before the start of school, but for your planning purposes, I wanted you all to have these now so you could begin to save the appropriate dates in your calendar. One calendar has all of our high school events, one has our district music and drama events.
Have a great week!
