Stay Connected!  You will find lots of valuable resources here to help your family’s experiences at SHHS be successful and rewarding.  Even after many years at SHHS, most parents discover opportunities that they didn’t know about though wish they had.  PTO works hard along side the District and school, to share information in different ways to reach as many parents as possible.  Be sure you're connected in multiple ways.  Please click here for details.

Get Involved!  There’s a great chance that there many things going on at SHHS that line up with things you care about and enjoy.  And, there are ways to participate all levels - from showing up to join the fun to managing a team of volunteers who plan and put on the event.  Please watch for emails throughout the year with program dates and how you can get involved.  Click here to volunteer and get involved.

We welcome your questions or suggestions and are here to help!  Please reach out to Timeka ( or Melanie ( anytime.  We’d love to hear from you!
