Penny Wars will begin next week during homecoming. This is a fund raising activity that each class competes against each other and the faculty by “voting” for their class by putting pennies in a jar. Students can subtract “votes” from their competitors by putting silver coins or paper money in their jars. We will begin voting at all lunch hours on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th and will continue until FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4TH . Our goal, every year, is to raise over $1000 for charity! This year donations will be made to local food pantries and other local charities.
Remember: This is the first event of the Irish games and points will be awarded.
Last year the seniors came in first place and last year’s freshmen came in a very close second. REMEMBER: Bring your pennies!
This year we started off helping Coach Brungard, and the SHS baseball program out by putting in all new frames in the home and visitors bullpen cages. We built a mound in both for pitchers to warm up in. We also framed up the openings to the home dugout and will be painting them and putting a big kelly-green block S on them.
Be sure to scroll through all the pictures to see all of our accomplishments.
The 2019 edition of the annual Afterglow yearbook, entitled JOURney has been delivered! Yearbooks were distributed during lunches on Tuesday, September 17.
Seniors from the Class of 2019 may pick up their yearbooks in the main office during regular school hours, or a sibling or parent can also pick up the book for them.
If you did not purchase a yearbook, a limited number of copies are available for $60. See Mrs. Karen Ruder in the Guidance Office to purchase a yearbook or Mrs. Niccolle Boaz in the Main Office.
Don’t miss out on the 2019 journey of memories in the Land of the Irish!
We would like to thank all of our Seneca High School parents/guardians that took the time to join us for Phase I – Curriculum Night, last night, August 22, 2019. We are hoping that this gave everyone a chance to see how your student(s) travel from class to class, meet their teachers, and personally hear and see the expectations of your son/daughter throughout the school year. We appreciate you taking the time and showing interest in what your students do, on a day-in and day-out basis here at Seneca High School. We look forward to seeing you all back for Phase II – Parent/Teacher Conferences on Wednesday, October 9th from 5-8pm.
