SCS Book Fair
March 1-9
School Library
 
Mark your calendar and plan to visit our school book fair!

The book fair will also be open after the 4PM Mass on Saturday, March 3 and after the 9AM and 11am Mass on Sunday, March 4. Family Night is Tuesday, March 6 from 4PM-6PM.   
Our SCS Lenten offering will be participating in Operation Rice Bowl. This is a program through Catholic Relief Services to fight world hunger and educate others on the issue. Each homeroom and Middle School religion class will have a rice bowl that we will work together to fill with a financial offering. We will also follow lesson plans based on a different country struggling with hunger each week. We will finish with the USA. We encourage families to decide to put aside a quarter or some change to donate each time they offer a Lenten sacrifice. This ties our FASTING to our ALMSGIVING and reminds us to PRAY. Let's remind and encourage one another to participate fully and have a holy Lent!
Please join our team SCS Gators when you register online. There is a prize for the elementary school with the most participants.
