SHS’s spring drama production has gone virtual this year as cast performs short student chosen comedic and dramatic monologues for your viewing entertainment. If possible, please reach out to individual students with some virtual applause. They have worked really hard on these and would love some Seward love! Just click on the first photo to begin the performance; the rest will play automatically.-Michele Walker

Graduation Announcement from Mr. Walker

 

Seward High School is pleased to announce that we will be able to host a live graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 on Tuesday, May 19th at 7:00 PM as originally scheduled.

 

Special thanks to Seward Public Radio—KIBH 91.7 FM—for broadcasting this event to the entire community.

 

We are working on plans to be able to directly involve graduating seniors and their immediate families in this live event and web streaming so that we can remotely involve extended families and friends from Seward and beyond.  Ms. Jordan and Ms. Starr are also working directly with seniors and parents to create a program that will fit this format and organize additional celebrations that are appropriate for this most unprecedented graduation ceremony.

 

Ms. Jordan and Ms. Starr are also reaching out to Scholarship Presenters to provide video clips of their scholarship and presentation so that we can edit them together to create a digital Awards Ceremony that is worthy of their investment in Seward High’s Class of 2020.

 

Finally, Mr. Walker has reached out to the Seward Ministerial Association so that they can begin planning a remote Baccalaureate ceremony for Sunday, May 17th.

 

It is important to remember that these plans are all subject to state and local health mandates and will be advertised as permissions are granted.

 

Stay tuned as there will be much more information to follow.

 

In the meantime, stay healthy, follow the mandates, and check in with the teachers every day!

 

Thanks all, Mr. W-

4-7-2020 Letter From Ms. Starr- Scholarship and Job Opportunities

Students and Guardians,

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all received my newsletter, please do read it thoroughly, as it has a TON of information from our staff and community.

An excerpt from our April Newsletter-
Parents! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE require your child(ren) to maintain “Aggressive” Social Distancing of GREATER than 6’. I’m hearing rumors about students riding around together in each other’s cars, walking around town, and students in relationships seen together in public places. I know these mandates are particularly difficult for our young and very social population, but the short-term disruption most certainly outweighs the potential long-term consequences for the entire community. PLEASE keep your child(ren) at home. This is so critical!
Thank you,
T Walker and SHS Staff

*Link to KPAA Scholarshiphttps://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/OneStop/OneStop.aspx?id=32898

*Link to KPBSD Scholarship Opportunities pagehttps://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/OneStop/Scholarships.aspx

 

*These applications are still very important, no matter what is going on in our crazy world, and filling them out will help take your mind off of things anyway.

 

Finally, I know the normal routine for the common scholarship application is to print out multiple copies for each scholarship however, while we are trying to reduce the spread of COVID-19, please e-mail Christy Jordan or I your finished application and we will print it out for you. Thank you! When you receive a scholarship please let Christy or I know! Whether you intend to accept it or not we would like to celebrate you and keep track of your accomplishments!

 

 

Most importantly– I hope you are all being kind to yourselves and practicing social distancing properly. I know it’s hard to feel so disconnected from everyone in this time of uncertainty but it truly is the safest method to stay healthy, and keep our community healthy! Take this time to write, read, exercise, create, invest time in your family, and friends. There are many ways to connect while practicing social distancing. Get creative with it and share your photos!

I genuinely miss you all.

Please stay safe and healthy,

Ms. Starr
