The next Parent Advisory Council meeting will be on Monday, December 10, from 5:30 to 6:30 at the SHS library. (Please note the slight time change.) The topic of this meeting is Scholarships; David Hammer from the Duluth/Superior Foundation, James Zastrow and Michelle Badden from the Superior Scholarship Foundation will make presentations regarding available scholarships, how to apply, application tips and dangers. Also on the agenda is senior student Brian Honnes. For his Senior Project Brian developed a scholarship search engine and he will demonstrate how his website works.
Parents of seniors are encouraged to attend, but any parent will find this information helpful as their son or daughter prepares for any post-secondary training. Our Superior Scholarship Foundation alone awards over $200,000 annually. It’s worth learning about.
We hope to see you all on December 10th at 5:30 in the SHS library.

Parent Survival Guide Handbook
This in an unofficial, common sense approach to life at SHS. Everything from where to pick up and drop off students, to co-curricular activities to dances. You name it, it's in there. Feel free to take a look and see what you think. Make suggestions or additions by contacting any member of the Parent Advisory Council.
