Congratulations to the SHS Band & Color Guard
I would like to thank and congratulate the band for their hard work and their success this year! The Color Guard placed 5th in the state during their competition. In two categories they had the top scores in the state. There were 6 band students who made the district or the parish honor band this year. Ashby Glover, Morrice Boutan , Tim Neighbor, Mark Porter, Nick McKnight, and Shannon Downey. The symphonic band scored straight superior ratings on stage at the competition two weeks ago. Superior is the highest possible rating. The band marched more than 25 miles of parades this year and we had many compliments from the public regarding the bands performance. Our band is back to pre-Katrina numbers and growing. I would like to thank Mr. Wild and all the band members for their school spirit and for what they provide to our school community!!!!! wcp

Congratulations Team 3946 Tiger Robotics
I would like to share our community’s accomplishment this weekend. 41 Slidell High students and 10 coaches from our community came together in October with the goal of fielding a competitive team. We were given a new sport and 6 weeks to design, build, and test an athlete to play this game.
We are a young team with little experience and relatively low funding. Despite this, your students worked 15-20 hours a week for 3 months preparing for this event. The coaches were literally hands off this entire season and tournament. All of the design, metal work, wiring, and programming was done solely by students.
We entered the FRC Bayou Regional with playoff hopes, and entered the playoffs on an alliance with Destrehan High and a school from Arkansas. In the finals we competed against an alliance of teams from Gulfport, Biloxi, and Nachez. In a best of 3 scenario we won 177-166 and 160-158.
Onward to the International Championship Tournament April 22-25 in St Louis!
The faculty and staff deserve a the lion’s share of the credit for developing a diverse, passionate, and gracious student body. I was thanked 14 times personally by event staff and other team coaches for our team's effort in volunteering to assist other teams or the event staff in a variety of functions. I am passing those on to you.
Our banner is hanging in room 610 until we figure out where we are hanging it if you want to come see.

Harrison Folse has been chosen as our Student of the Year. Although he was not the overall winner for the district, he did a wonderful job of representing our school. In case you are not aware, a great deal of time goes into creating the applicant’s portfolio.
On another note, Harrison was also one of a few students across our state chosen as a WWLTV A+ Athlete. His segment appeared on TV over the weekend but is also available for viewing by visiting wwltv.com .
