Happy Thanksgiving To All!
Dear SHS Parent/Guardian,
Over this past week we marked
the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination. While fitting and
proper to do so, it overshadowed another anniversary of great significance.
Tuesday, November 19 was the sesquicentennial of The Gettysburg Address.
President Lincoln’s brilliant, magisterial 272 words ring across the last 150
years with a moral authority whose relevance continues to apply today.
The President also established
this most American of holidays, a day of thanks, and perhaps the only national
holiday that has resisted the dry rot of rampant consumerism. As we go forth to
join family and friends---thank you---for your support of our schools and teachers.
