SHS Student Updates


New News: 

  • Memorial Day/Week Schedule: Due to the current circumstances, our traditional Memorial Day observances in Morrisville and Stowe will be modified this year. SHS will have a Memorial Day themed Advisory/observance on May 22nd (the Friday before Memorial Day). We will also shift our schedule that week. 

Monday, May 25- No School for Memorial Day

Tuesday, May 26- Periods , 2, 4, 6, 8 and advisory

Wednesday, May 27- Periods 1, 3, 5, 7 and advisory

Thursday, May 28- Periods 2, 4, 6, 8 and advisory

  • The Alchemist Opportunity Fund:  The new online-only version of the scholarship application is live - you can find the link on our website:   Students please see our website because the criteria & instructions are at that site, though they can also go direct to the application form.  Application deadline is May 15th. 
  • DATE CHANGE: For our 11th grade students, you are invited to participate in the Writing a College Essay Workshop.  This participatory workshop is designed to help high school students write compelling college application essay(s). Workshops are offered Tuesday 5/26 at 2:45 PM and Friday 5/29 at 11 AM. Please RSVP to Tarah the Wednesday before the workshop and we'll send a google invitation to you.

The college essay will not get you into a college; it may, however:

    • tip the scale when compared to others of equal qualifications
    • provide a “sticky” recollection of your application for admissions
    • show your heart and soul as a prospective student

As a result of this workshop, you will:

Ô Understand what makes you stand out, strengths and values

Ô Be familiar with two types of essays

Ô Refresh writing style and skills

Ô Target a topic for essay writing

Ô Create an outline and key paragraphs (hook or conclusion)

Ô Know resources for essay review


If your student is sick or unable to engage in learning on a specific day, we completely understand, but please just let us know by reaching out to your student’s advisor or email Tarah Hubbard at [email protected]
