🌟 “You’re all that and a bag of chips!” High school edition. In spite of the challenges of teaching during a pandemic, educators have demonstrated resiliency and perseverance to find creative solutions for the benefit of our students. We are grateful to ALL of our staff for their hard work this year. We hope you will take a moment to thank them too. Recently, Snyder High School recognized a few of our educators for going above and beyond by saying, “You’re all that and a bag of chips!” We hope they can find time to kick back and relax for a few minutes with a bag of chips and a Sonic drink. 😊 Snyder High School: Jennifer Beard Wendy Hunter Shane Stewart Aleida Juarez
