Attention all students. Spring is here and we all know how awesome it is to put your feet in the sand and enjoy the beach. That is exactly what Believe in Tomorrow offers to critically ill children. You can help one of these children by bringing in beach toys, shovels, towels, sunscreen, coloring books, playing cards and other beach accessories. Starting March 15th, SDHS will hold a beach toy school-wide drive. You can drop off your items at the main office, the CRT office, or Mrs. Chetelat’s room A175. Thanks in advance for helping someone in need!

Seniors! For the first time in forever, we are taking a senior class trip! It’s a “sweet” one to Hershey Park on May 22nd with a rain date of May 25th. The cost of the trip is $50 and it is open to the first 100 seniors who submit their money and permission slip to Mrs. Berquist in the CRT Office. Cash or checks made payable to SDHS will be accepted. Permission slips are available outside of the CRT Office now. Don’t miss out on this culminating high school experience.
