Headlines & Features
The 2019-2020 school year is off to a great start in Somers Schools. Quite a few new teachers and support staff have joined the district, and you’ll notice some new faces in the main offices at all four buildings. Mr. Marc Hattem, the girls varsity basketball coach and formerly a physical education teacher at Somers Intermediate School, has joined SHS as Dean of Students. We welcome all new faculty, staff and students to Somers High School!
Can’t make the varsity girls volleyball game in the Somers High School gym? Out of town for the boys junior varsity soccer game on Turf 1? All the action is now available, live on your phone, tablet or computer. The district is using the streaming service LocalLive to show games and events at the high school on Turf 1, in the main gym, and in the auditorium. High definition cameras with microphones have been installed in each location and are controlled by a remote technician.
The new rotating block schedule is in place at Somers High School, including the implementation of the Community Lunch, a lunch period for everyone at the same time. During the first few days of school, students discovered the new seating areas, learned how to use the app to order food in advance, and found fun activities after they ate, including playing basketball, making music together, and getting extra help from teachers.
Visit the SCSD Facebook page to watch videos and hear from students about Community Lunch.
