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.
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:

December

Thank you Mrs. Wiebelt for volunteering your time to help, for checking on me, and for getting me into an earlier MRI appointment. - Trece Jordan-Larsen

Thanks to Sylvia Hooks for giving me the computer lab that I accidentally double-booked! - Meredith M. Jansen

My heart is so full from the emotional and physical support I received today (and many other days) from many of our wonderful faculty members. Special shout out to Coach Green, Mrs. Muller, and Mrs. Rotolo for rushing to my aid to get my classes covered because my son’s doctor appointment ran longer than anticipated. Also a special “thank you” to all that inquired about him. It truly is an incredible feeling to have that support from my work family. Every day is a great day to be a tiger, baby! - Brittany Boos

I want to thank Erin B., Rebecca M., Whitney B. for making our 3rd hour meetings enjoyable! - Sandra Marshall

Eric Schwefel from Schwefel Strength and Performance took time out of his busy schedule to come and talk to two of my classes about living with a passion, a purpose and his entrepreneurship experience. He hand made each one of my students a “my intent” bracelet. They are proudly wearing them around with encouraging words! He truly made a positive impact on my students. - Samantha Fontenot 

Thank you to the PTA for providing a delicious breakfast to the staff at Slidell High. I know that it was appreciated by all! - Melody Boeck

Danilo Rodriguez (12th gr) goes out of his way to greet me EVERY time he enters the classroom.  Even if I'm with someone when he comes in, he'll wait until I'm finished and then walk across the room to tell me, "Good morning."  He did it last year, too, and I think it's so sweet of him to make such an effort to be kind every day.  I look forward to it now!  😊 -- Karen Evans

A big thank you to Christy Wiebelt for allowing  my students and me to use her room almost on a daily basis.  Also thank you to C.J. Roberts for lending me her coat while I was on duty freezing. -- Elise Hernandez

I would like to thank Mr. Lebo for helping the engineering class complete their Mardi Gras float build. I would also like to thank Ms. Turlich for getting our wheels for the float printed. I love how our teachers collaborate to get things done for our students. Go Tigers! -- Lance Grant

Thank you Mrs. Muller for saving my sanity via coffee! Shout out to Kiera Voisey for giving me a “Pep Talk” and making a rough day a little brighter! -- Kristen Tarleton

Thank you to the business department for collaborating with me while teaching a new subject, goodness knows I have needed the help. A special thanks to Coach Mark Ferrer, Coach Sammie Fontenot, and BB Garrett, for making the guest speaker days enjoyable (lots of laughs and motivation for sure!!). I am fortunate to work with this great group. A lot of work goes in to scheduling and arranging a guest speaker and I am thankful for their work and collaboration!! -- Melody Boeck

A BIG shout out to the Foreign Language Club students who came and CLEANED students desk in the OLD five hundred wing, as a community service -- Senior Zavalza

Another thank you goes to Mrs. Macaluso--she saw that we were about to tackle a big research project, and she came and taught my government classes how to use the library's online databases.  She didn't just show them how to access it, but she also showed them useful tips and tricks AND printed them a handout so they could access the database at home. 
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! Erin Brockhaus

Special thanks to Chef Aucoin for always going out if his way to help all of us with food projects, storing FCA’s donated food for Friday morning’s breakfast, and for generously making apron’s for the FCA cooks .  What a blessing he has been to SHS!
Awesome job to Mrs. Marks and the broadcasting team. My students thoroughly enjoy watching the daily announcements.
I cannot express the level of joy I have working with such loving and kind people. Being part of such a wonderful school makes all the struggles of teaching worth it.  I have not met 1 person here who is not willing to help someone out, share ideas, or simply listen. When you think people are not listening and watching, know that they are. You guys are THE best! Kasey Wahl

I want to give a shout out to Mr. Sauber, Mrs. St. Cyr, and all of the faculty who made the “Little Mermaid” successful!  When adolescents are given such a great opportunity for self-esteem building, it is amazing to watch.  My students were so excited about the play, asked everyday if I was going, and smiled from ear to ear while performing!  It was priceless to see <3 Mandy Mitchell

October

I attended the game Friday night and wanted to give a shoutout to a couple guys from the school but couldn’t find where to do that on the website.  Since I live in the New Orleans area  and not being familiar with the school campus and running late, I failed to really note where I parked or which entrance I went in.  You can guess what happened after the game.

After wandering around for a while, a chance meeting with the game announcer (we had time to get a bit acquainted with each other!) and his getting the school patrolman involved, were both very helpful in locating my car after the game, I just wanted to somehow express my gratitude for their help.  I did not get their names so please somehow let them know I really appreciated their patience and assistance in getting me to my car eventually.

It is so refreshing to know there are still such good people that really go out of their way in today’s world to take the time to help a stranger.

Thanks so very much for any help you can give in reaching out to these two guys and giving them the kudos they deserve.

I would like to give a big thanks to GUY and TRECE for all of their efforts in getting our technology working for the Advanced Career classes. We are doing our online certifications and Guy has been fantastic in setting up, troubleshooting, and making himself available for any issues that arise. Trece has been invaluable in getting us the resources we need, stepping in to help at a moment’s notice, and especially in communications with central office as needed with the program. Without the two of them, we could not be successful in helping our students achieve these certifications. THANKS!!! Mark Ferrer
