Reminder! Practice sessions for all events (except for Ready Writing Grades 6 to 8 - their practices will be held during class time) will be from dismissal until 4:30pm. Students may bring a small non-messy snack to eat after school if they wish to do so. At 4:30, students will be sent to sports, After School Care, or may be picked up at the front of the school, whichever is appropriate for your child.  ~ Mrs. Irvin 


PSIA is the Private School Interscholastic Association. It sponsors district and state academic objective and subjective event competitions which are run and staffed by parent volunteers.  The district and state events follow strict rules for participation and competition.  Individual schools organize their own PSIA programs in whatever way the school feels best prepares their students for competition.  This page contains basic information about our PSIA program here at SHCS. For additional information on the PSIA program, please click on the PSIA image to the right.  Sign-up information and handouts from the Coordinator, Mrs. Irvin, can be found on the right-hand side of this webpage.

All parents of students participating in District or State competitions are required to volunteer some hours of time to help run the event. Please do not sign up your children if they cannot attend the District Competition on 3/3/18, or if a parent would not be available to volunteer. Thank you!
