SHHS Home & School Meetings:

Typically, we hold our meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm.  Meetings are held in the SHHS Library (one flight down from the Providence Road entrance or 1 flight up from the Brookhaven Road entrance). A thematic discussion will open our meetings, followed by a principal’s report, and then the Home and School community meeting.


PLEASE ATTEND OUR MEETINGS!!! They really help parents stay informed about a wide range of topics that are being handled by staff, faculty and students. Please join us!
