Santa Susana High School - Monday Message

October 31, 2016



 SSHS Web Site

Please visit Santa Susana High School online through our new web address: sshs.simivalleyusd.org

 ASVAB The ASVAB, an aptitude test administered by the military, is being offered at SSHS on November 4th. It is an invaluable tool to help your student with his/her future educational and career plans and the results will help them learn more about themselves and occupations they might find rewarding. The ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success. While it is administered by the military, there is no obligation to the military in taking this exam. Pick up an application in the CCC and return it by November 1st! Questions? Contact your counselor!
Thanksgiving Food Drive The Care and Share Committee (part of the SSHS PTSA) will be holding a food drive to benefit local needy families through donations to the Simi Valley Samaritan Center. Please see the attached flyer for details regarding the specific items being collected for this event. Bins for collection will be available at the front and back parking lots November 1st-November 4th before and after school. We are also looking for student volunteers willing to help man the collection bins. Community Service hours will be awarded for the time donated to helping with this worthwhile event. Contact information can be found on the attached flyer.
SSHS Science Fair On February 10, 2017, SSHS will be hosting its first annual Science Fair. In order to participate, you must submit an initial proposal by November 4, 2016. The winners of our school's science fair will be encouraged to compete in Ventura County's Science Fair. See the attached flyer for more information.
 STEAM Expo Visit the new website sshssteamexpo.com to find applications, guidelines, latest information and sponsor opportunities for the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) Expo, Science Fair and STEAM Speaker Series.

20th Anniversary Virtual Choir
(for students, parents, and alumni)
Attention students, parents, and alumni! Do you have music expertise and/ or video production expertise? As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, we are working on putting together a virtual choir of alumni and current students. For inspiration on what this great project might look like, check out Eric Whitacre's TED talk: A Virtual Choir 2,000 Voices Strong. If you have the knowledge and expertise to help us put this together, please email Mr. Block.
Thanksgiving Pie and Holiday Tree Fundraisers

The Santa Susana High School STEM Club is having a "Pi Sale" and a Holiday Tree Sale to raise the much needed funds to host our second annual STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) Expo, scheduled for February 10 and 11. This year, our STEAM Expo will be part of our 20th Anniversary Celebrations.

Please help support this event by purchasing your holiday pies and holiday tree from our students. Orders may be placed with a student in the STEM Club, or in our ASB Student Store.
