During homeroom on Wednesday, January 15, SHS students were given a four-year chart with high school course offerings to help them as they sign up for next year's classes. A course selection form will be mailed home to SHS families. The form should be filled out (and signed by a parent/guardian) and returned on January 31 to the student's math teacher. If the student does not have a math class next semester, he/she should bring the form to the Student Support Office. In addition to the course selection form, freshmen and sophomores will also receive their results from the EXPLORE and PLAN tests in the mailing. (Both tests were administered in October.) During homeroom, these students were also given information on the results that can help them plan for the future.
