SHS PTA Multicultural Committee
The SHS Multicultural Committee is a group of international and non-international parents who organize different events to welcome new and multicultural families into our community, to introduce them to each other, and to provide relevant information about the SHS experience. Staff from the SHS Counseling Department and other SHS representatives will be present to answer your questions about the school and its programs. We look forward to meeting you at our events.
