Humble Brags!

Humble Brags! is SHS's newest forum for good news.
Please send your humble brags to Melody.Boeck@stpsb.org.

Faculty & Staff: The Publicity Committee wants to know if a student has made your day, if a student has accomplished something or done something great, if a team member was encouraging, or if you have a personal success. It is not about just surviving the week, it is also about supporting each other and enjoying what we do.

Here are the Humble Brags that we have received:

November-December:

Mrs. Blondeau had a wonderful idea to display student work called "The Fridge". I quickly adapted it into my own classroom and I think it is an easy and cute way to impress our visitors AND give our students a pat on the back for their excellent work! Disclaimer, you may need to explain to the students the history behind putting work on the refrigerator. 😊 Again, shout out to Mrs. B for the idea!!! - Ari'yana Gibson

Shout-out to Haley Creith, Reese Charrier, & Isabel Singletary for painting the “paw path” on the 9th street breezeway.

Thank you to Mrs. Palao and the students who painted the tiger paws to mark our path. Mr. Quay A. Brisco

Last week was one of the most trying weeks that I have had in many years.  Friday, I go to my mailbox, wondering if I am about done, and discover a nicely wrapped gift with a card.  I take it to my room and open it.  It was a beautifully crocheted scarf and the card that was so beautifully written that it brought tears to my eyes.  I guess I just needed a reminder about how much I love teaching at Slidell High. Whoever the angel is that put this timely treasure in my box, thank you so much! Mrs. Marshall

I would like to THANK Ms. Roberts and Mrs. Gant for donating blankets for my cause to keep the fur babies in the shelters warm this winter. Linda W. Reed

BIG THANK YOU to Coach Favre and the administration for their presence in the 600 hall during passing periods! It really has helped decrease the tardies-We all appreciate it! - Samantha Yelnick

I wanted to take a moment to highlight three students that are working on a business plan to create a running business: Cody Selph, Veronica Lacroix, and Alijah Garner. You do not often see students with the motivation to see beyond High school graduation. However, these three students have a future plan that they are creating to be co-owners in a company. It was inspiring to see the business plan and the students' motivation/excitement about the company!

Also, thank you to Mrs. Arcement, for the idea and helping print and cut wording, to fixthe billboards in the short 300 hall. We are in the process of revamping these boards to show updated programs and students that are certified. Thank you as well, to 4 of my students: Kimyatta Camper, Timiah Graham, Danae Jenkins, and Dominique Hopkins for cleaning up the billboards for decorating. - Melody Boeck
