Saks High School

Saks High School Saks High School is a part of the Calhoun County School system. Saks High is located in Anniston, Alabama.

In the late 1940's, the Joseph Saks family donated land for a school in the Saks community in the northern suburb of Anniston. The school would become Saks Jr. High School covering grades 1-9. A small, white building would house the first grades at the school, but a new brick structure complete with a Jr. High gym that was "state of the art," at the time, was to follow. The school was expanded to include senior high grades in the late 50's with the first graduating class to come in 1962. Today, Saks enjoys a campus that includes three buildings for classes, two gyms, a band room, a choir room, a large home economics department, and a beautiful athletic complex with four fields, but the campus is still known as "Dear ol' S.H.S."

Saks High School Marching Band

Greetings,

First, I hope you all are doing well during this time of social distancing! I continue to miss each of you and the music we make together! Don’t forget to spend a little time playing your instrument each day! Also, I would love to be a part of it, by viewing the recordings of you playing (i.e. scales, solos, exercises, stand tunes, concert music etc).

Second, I need the help of all our Saks Wildcat Sound Members to take your uniform (all parts except the shako (hat) to Smith Cleaners next door to “Christian Corner Meats” now until May15th! You will give them the uniform with the student name. They will write a ticket, but you will not pay. Thanks to our Band Boosters for paying the bill. We will take up the Shakos (hats) on another occasion.

In closing, I’m attaching a questionnaire link for parents/boosters. There will be another google form for students given out via e-mail and remind later this week. Please open the links and answer the questions. Your responses will come to me. Also, please continue to check our band page (thesakshighschoolmarchingband) for new info. In addition, for those who follow instagram, please follow our new (sakswildcatsound) account. Thank you in advance for participating!

Thank you in advance and take care!

Saks Elementary is so thankful for these sweet ladies! They are rockstars everyday at SES and this pandemic hasn’t slowed them down!

This community...these people... these servant hearts❤️❤️❤️

Today at Saks Elementary, we counted over 900 food bags packed! Saks First Baptist and Saks Baptist showed up again to pack bags. Servants of Jesus shelter and Anniston First Methodist Church brought even more food! These precious people simply make things happen for our community!

We had many academic packets picked up and many food bags picked up in the office. BUT, we also had staff members teaming up by getting academic packets and food bags and hand delivering them to many homes. It was simply an amazing day watching everyone giving back to this community! The faces of these sweet babies when we arrived at their doors to bring food and smiles was such a bittersweet moment. As we wonder how quickly the chaos will calm, as we anxiously await that next news conference where we are given updates from our state and national levels, may we simply stop and look for the ways people are coming together to help out our fellow man! I am so so proud of this staff, these church members, this community! They never cease to amaze me! When presented with a challenge, they always rise up for the cause and always, always, always do much more than even asked! We are in this together, Saks Wildcats, and I cannot wait to hear of the blessings we all witness through this storm!

Please let us know how we can continue to help you! We ❤️ this community and want to help ensure our children continue to be successful academically, but most of all we want to make sure that they have the necessities they need to feel safe!

Way to go Aleta!! We are very proud of you!! Go Wildcats!

Aleta Graham is a junior at Saks High School and an outstanding student in the culinary department at the Calhoun County Career Academy. She serves as the general manager for her shift in the culinary department. She is a member of FCCLA where she serves as the Vice-President. Aleta was recently inducted into the National Technical Honor Society. She was first exposed to the culinary department during her gifted class on campus. This ignited a passion for cooking in her that led her to become a student in our culinary department. She envisions her career in this area and currently runs her own baking and pastry business. We are very proud to have Miss Aleta Graham be our student of the month for March.
