Student Auto Skills Competition

l


As a team representing Slidell High, seniors Michael Boteler and Christopher Miller will compete and put their knowledge of automotive work to the test at the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills competition on May 1. In this educational contest, these Slidell High students will compete against 10 other groups from other local St. Tammany parish schools. These teams will be expected to identify and install parts into Ford Fiestas. The students will then drive their respective cars across the finish line and have their automobiles inspected by judges who will rate them on their accuracy.


This competition’s grand prize will be scholarships, automotive tools, honors, and the chance to compete at the national finals being held held June 8-10 at the Ford headquarters in Michigan. The faculty and students at Slidell High congratulate and honor these outstanding students and their exceptional representation of their school on a national and local standpoint.

 

 

Robot Showcase

l

Slidell High robotics students showed off their robot at lunch in the cafeteria. This robot that these students worked so hard to build was recently used during their competition season. The SHS Tiger Robotics had a great season competing and representing their school. As a celebration of the 2014 season, the robotics team members gave their classmates a demonstration of their robot’s abilities. This competition season, the students’ objective was to create a robot that can pick up, catch, and throw a ball. With overwhelming campus support, the students’ demonstration was a success and entertained much of the lunchtime crowd.

 

 

Freshman Luau

l

Slidell High School's annual freshman Luau once again was a big success. The celebration marked the end of these students’ first year at Slidell High. The luau features many games and foods for this class to enjoy.  There was a wide array of water slides and a tent for face painting provided by Talented Art students. The students enjoyed a day of music and fun courtesy of freshman teachers and many volunteers.  

l

Mr. Strohl, as well as other freshman teachers volunteered to be ‘pied’ as a freshman class fundraiser - helping to raise money to build and operate a school in Uganda.  They raised over $800 for the cause!  Thank you Mr. Strolh, Mrs. Brockhaus, Mrs. Luque, and Mr. Brisco.

Bike Path Master Plan Extension

l

Slidell High business and engineering interns Morgan Age and Stephen Dieck  played a role in Slidell’s new master plan for the bike path extension.  Under the supervision of Eric Lundin, City Planner at the Slidell Department of Planning, the students created the path types and routes that will connect areas of Slidell together.  They researched, devised, and presented the master plan for Slidell’s bike path extension to the planning and zoning department who will now implement the plan as funding becomes available.  The purpose of the plan is to create a network of bike and pedestrian paths for Slidell residents and visitors.  It will also provide safe transportation routes for children to schools, local parks, and recreational  usage.

Students Send Christmas Cards
To Servicemen Around the World

l

Students from Slidell High sent more than 3400 Christmas cards to servicemen overseas as part of a holiday season community service project that has taken on a life of its own.

They mailed eight boxes to bases in Afghanistan, Kuwait, S. Korea, and Parris Island.

The project began as a hundred or so cards for the history class of second-year Teacher Barry Marton, but once the word got out, the entire school ( and the local business community) wanted to join in. The cards were distributed around campus this past week so students could sign them and personalize them with special messages before they were mailed out December 10 and 11.

Marton organized the project, and he said the number of volunteers wanting to participate in the project has been amazing. “The kids and teachers were begging to get involved,” he said. A number of Slidell area businesses have also come on board, donating Christmas cards and money for postage.

The project has brought together thousands of students, their teachers, administration, and business people to make sure every student at Slidell High has the opportunity to send a card. Marton had contacted a number of businesses around the school to participate in the project, and many them agreed to help. Now they are contacting him again wanting to help even more.

It’s a great example of the “community connections” that Slidell High has fostered over the years, Marton said, proving again that the school has a great reputation and great students.

Marton said the messages being written in the cards by the students were sometimes quite meaningful. “Many of them are not only wishing the servicemen and women Merry Christmas, but they are including personal messages that sometimes fill every possible space on the card.” He thanked all those who had taken part in the massive undertaking, a project that has to be completed by Wednesday in order to meet a Post Office deadline for getting the cards overseas before Christmas.

“The Slidell High community is amazing,” he said. Postage is being paid for with donations from several campus service clubs and Slidell businesses. He was interviewed by a local television station about the project Friday morning and is expecting an even greater response after the news feature is broadcast Friday night.

Businesses wanting to take part included Office Depot, Rouses’, Wal-Mart and Walgreens.

“These young people are the best,” he said after reading some of their messages. “They understand what this is all about and wanted to get involved. It started out small, but the more people heard about it, the more they wanted to take part.”
Marton was teaching his students last week about how Americans supported the troops during World War II, how the “homefront” was always showing concern and encouragement for the men and women in the military. “The young people today really don’t know a time when the United States hasn’t been at war,” he went on to say,” so their question to me was: why aren’t we doing the same thing today on the homefront?”

“After talking to some friends who had served overseas in the Armed Services, we realized that cards from home really brighten their holiday season, so a Christmas card project would be the thing to do,” Marton explained. “From there, it really took off.”

The business community involvement was especially encouraging. “We were talking with business managers who had sons overseas, people who had students on the Slidell High football team, people with connections with Slidell High in all kinds of ways, and they wanted to get involved,” Marton commented.

He thinks that if interest continues to climb, he predicted about 4000 cards being sent out next week from Slidell High.

“Some of the messages I am reading from these young people are making me cry,” he admitted. “They understand what these servicemen and women are going through. The things they are saying in these cards are amazing. Based on what I am reading on some of these cards, I think as adults we may be underestimating this generation. Nobody told them what to write or what was expected, but the messages show they understand.”

The fact that some of these students may have older brothers and sisters overseas may contribute to that understanding, Marton said. “I have already had some students asking me for cards they can send to their brothers and sisters in the service overseas.”

Marton and a group of friends will be reading all the cards over the weekend. He has already done the research for all the things that have to be done to make sure the military requirements are met for incoming mail.

Superintendent W. L. “Trey” Folse said the project was a phenomenal community connection and he was proud of the Slidell High family conducting the drive.
