Yearbook

Attention SSHS families!

This is your last opportunity to pre-order a yearbook at the discounted price of $100 (w/ASB) and $110 (no ASB). Get it before yearbook distribution, when the price will go up to $125. But don't wait too long: once we're sold out, we're sold out forever.

Please share with other school families.

From the Library

The FREE summer reading program has begun. Each summer, Audiofile Magazine offers their SYNC summer reading program for teens 13+. Through this program, teens have access to 2 free audiobook downloads per week. The 2018 program is already in full swing. Please let your son/daughter know about this program, and let's keep them reading all summer long.

Teens will need to download the free Overdrive app. Once students download these audiobooks, they are theirs to keep forever! Titles are only available to download for 7 days, and the selection changes every Thursday morning.

The details may be found at this site: https://www.audiobooksync.com/
