Soddy Daisy High School

SDHS Callout for February 5, 2023

Good evening, Soddy Daisy High School! This month is Black History Month and the month of Love! Our faculty and staff will be spending the month of February honoring African-Americans throughout history while celebrating love and encouragement through various learning, activities, and recognitions.  What a great month to highlight and celebrate the human spirit and ways to love one another. 


PTSA Progress

PTSA held their opening meeting last Thursday evening.  We are very excited to get this arm of support back and rolling for our school family and community.  They will be meeting again soon to update the by-laws as well as to elect a treasurer. If you would like to serve and participate in our PTSA, please reach out to the school, and we will connect you with Mr. Weaver and Mrs. Suttles. 


Important Lunch Announcement

High schools in Hamilton County have a charge limit of $40.00. Starting Monday, February 6, students who have met their charge limit will not be allowed to get a breakfast or lunch. I am including the link to Titan, where parents can create an account to pay for meals or monitor what their student is purchasing, as well as view the balance of their account. We can accept cash and checks in the cafeteria.  Thanks for your help with this. Visit https://familytitank12.com to sign-up today.


Theatrics and SDHS

The Theatre Department is performing Soddy Night Live on Friday, February 10 during the school day for students. Tickets are $3.  An evening show will be performed on Saturday, February 11th at 7 p.m. in the Band Room. Tickets will be on sale at the door. 

Also, congratulations to the Forensics Team as we have had wonderful successes at tournaments this year.  Recently, the team placed 1st at the Cookeville High School Tournament and 3rd Overall at the Sullivan East Tournament this past Saturday, February 4.  There were many individual winners at each of these tournaments. Congrats, Team!


College News

For juniors: applying to college can seem daunting, and the prospect of paying for it can seem even more overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. The Questbridge College Prep Scholars Program equips high-achieving high school juniors from low-income backgrounds with the knowledge, confidence, and resources to apply to top colleges. Find more information directly from QuestBridge's website below.
