Holiday Concert Night Performance

What an experience and now a priceless memory!  Our scholars performed like never before in their beautiful holiday garments. We thank our staff, students, and parents for creating magic.  I can hear and feel the rhythm of our scholars singing songs like HipHop Elves, Dominick the Donkey, and Pinata.  The diversity of the music was impressive and wholly aligned with our beliefs.  

A special thanks to Mr. Winfield, who took the above photos of our scholars. and Mr. Chesson, who helped greet our school family for the morning concert. 14E3C0EC EE60 4543 955A 12273FEDCF1466E3260C 6FD7 47BC B555 F8721D4429C00C5BB77C 8BAE 4956 B7BC DF4B3928766D2F58D885 942C 41F4 9800 0B6A103D49CB

Attendance Matters!

tempImageCRjDqd

We aim to ensure that scholars are IN SCHOOL ON TIME.  Daily we review the data and check in on our families.  For scholars to make predicted progress, they must be in school. So far, for November, over 130 scholars have achieved perfect attendance for the month.  We have given certificates, and cool bracelets hosted parties, and will raffle off a few gift cards starting tomorrow.  Although we are making incremental growth, we still have a ways to go. We are calling all family members to help us in our efforts to ensure that scholars are IN SCHOOL AND ON TIME.

Check out our attenDANCE party for scholars who achieved perfect attendance for the entire first quarter. (See Above.)

Harvest Walk 2022

Today was a beautiful day for our annual harvest walk. Scholars from grades Pre- K through 4th grade and our staff were able to showcase their most creative rendition of a given character. We had football players, princesses, cheerleaders, and several other characters. As scholars exited the building, our parents were kind enough to cheer them on. You can see their confidence and pride as they marched around the building. Although instructional time is pivotal, we must allow scholars to engage in other memorable activities that are developmentally appropriate. 

Thanks to all who had a part in making this happen!AC3A0460 1 1

Open House

Screen Shot 2022 09 19 at 4.20.49 PM

We are confident you have seen our flyer for the Open House. Open House is an excellent opportunity for parents to gauge their child's year. On Wednesday, September 21, we will hold two sessions in the cafe, one at 5 PM and the other at 6 PM. Each session will start with an introduction of the staff and a message from SCSU. Immediately following the SCSU presentation, parents will head to their child's classrooms, where your child's classroom teachers will provide parents with an overview of the year. In addition, our unified Arts teachers will be in their classrooms, ready to answer any questions regarding students' experience in the arts.

We are excited to have you all on campus!
