shsSHS Students Run in Support of MarkUs for Change

During last week’s meet at Wilton, the entire SHS Cross Country team wore MarkUs for Change t-shirts and ran in support of the SPEF campaign.  This annual activity is in memory of former student Marcus Dixon who tragically lost his life in 2012.  SHS is a proud supporter of MarcUS for Change which supports the academic and social-emotional needs of at–risk middle and high school students.  Thank you to SHS Cross Country coaches Fred Kelley and Adam Scianna for fostering productive habits of heart and encouraging our students to support their community!


What is an SPS Shout Out?

An SPS Shout Out is a special recognition that acknowledges school communities, staff members or students who have inspired us with a unique project, an outstanding job or a special effort that had a positive impact on our students or community.  Each week we will celebrate a few by sharing with all SPS staff and posting on the district website. Please share any or all of these with your friends and families.   

SPS Administrators can submit Shout Outs for consideration through the form shared with them in the Administrators’ Weekly.
