Humble Brags!

Humble Brags! is SHS's newest forum for good news.
Please send your humble brags to

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.
Students: There is a box by the door to room 420 with index cards. Please use these cards to brag on a kind deed, a personal accomplishment, a teacher, or a friend by leaving a note on an index card and leaving it in the box. We want the students to participate by sharing their accomplishments and views.
Thank you for participating and bring on those Humble Brags!!

Here are the Humble Brags that we have received:
