Valentine’s Day at SHS was a sweet occasion from start to finish. Our SHS boys were thrilled to drop by the hot chocolate booth during their morning recesses to enjoy an eco-friendly mug topped off with marshmallows. They ended their special day by picking up their tasty ‘Sharks with Hearts’ treats to bring home and share with their friends and family!
