Class Council is planning many events to celebrate your time at Shen. More detailed information will be
coming out about each event, but we wanted to give you a preview. We hope that you will help us start new
traditions. Many of these activities require you to be a part of the Class of 2020 Google Classroom (539 of you
already are), so if you are not, the code is: hlnon4h

Lawn Signs and Yearbook Pick Up :
The Shenendehowa Educational Foundation, in partnership with MovinAds,
are donating lawn signs to each member of the senior class. Pick up will be

Senior Yearbook distribution will occur on the same dates and times. If you did not pre-order one but would
still like a yearbook, there are some available for purchase. Cost is $75.00 and checks can be made out to
Shenendehowa High School. Please check your shenschools email for additional information about the
pick-up process and maintaining social distancing guidelines.
