Attention students! American Education Week is next week and it’s time to recognize some teachers and staff members at SDHS who have made a difference in your life! Click on the Teacher/Staff Shout out link on the SDHS Schoology page to nominate a teacher or staff member anonymously, to be highlighted on the morning announcements next week.
