Our deptartment is committed to helping students succeed at SHS and beyond. Here are some of the yearly events and scholarships that we sponsor:
- World Languages International Dinner- This is a multicultural fundraiser event where students bring dishes from all over the world to share.

Thank you for making this event successful!
