Our SHindig outdoor assembly, including a bbq, music, games and general fun, will run from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. This will be a great day for students to play, build school spirit and raise funds for a very worthy cause.
Thursday, June 2nd - Community Connections Fair - hosted by Student Services staff - 4:30 to 7:30 pm. Please come by to meet over 20 community agencies who are here to support families. Visit with staff from Child and Youth Mental Health, Little Oasis Equine Therapy, Selkirk College, Community Living BC and many others while you enjoy a snack from our taco bar!
Thursday, June 9th - SHSS Learning Showcase - hosted by students and staff of SHSS - 5:30 to 7:00 pm. If a concert, a craft fair, a classroom, a workshop and a gallery had a baby, this would be it!
Our open house event is an opportunity for us to show off the talents and skills of SHSS. Hear the band, sample some of our Culinary Arts delights, cheer on student athletes in the gym, see our shops in action, watch our artists create, enjoy displays of student projects and get a feel for the positive energy of our site. Money raised by the sale of student projects and products will be donated to Castlegar and District Community Services Society. Please come by and see all that SHSS has to offer!
We are excited to bring back activities that open our doors and connect us all! Thank you for your support, encouragement and for the ongoing privilege of working with your families. I am so proud to be a part of the SHSS community.
