SCS MISSION STATEMENT
As a Catholic school community, we believe in the uniqueness, dignity and potential of every student.  Following the life and example of Jesus Christ, we strive to build character while teaching compassion. By strengthening our students in spirit, mind and body, we prepare them to lead lives based on faith, values, and learning. 
NEWS & UPDATES
A MESSAGE ON SAFETY
In light of the tragic events in Florida last week, please be  reassured that SCS does have very specific security measures in place. We have a procedure for lock-downs and intruders that has been developed in conjunction with local military and police forces. Staff receives training and instruction on these procedures and each class practices several times a year.

Prior to current events, we had already implemented a plan to upgrade our current security systems (cameras and door locks) to state of the art technology. These upgrades are expected to be installed this summer.  It is natural to question or feel some level of fear when events, like last week, happen. I hope this helps ease your mind. At SCS, student and staff safety is always the #1 priority! -- Principal Tisdale



FATHER-DAUGHTER DANCE
The Father-Daughter Dance is being postponed to allow greater attendance by our SCS families.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.  Please stay tuned for additional information about this event.
