Dear Parents,

This will be the last newsletter for the school year.  

As the 2017-2018 school year comes to a close, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of  our SCSS community for your kindness, collaboration, and support. You have all made this school year a successful one. It has been both a pleasure and a blessing to have my days filled with your children.  

This time of year is always filled with a great sense of excitement and joy as we wish our soon-to-be graduates well in the next chapter of their lives. SCSS graduation will be held June 13th at 7:00 pm in the Church. Our students are well-prepared and eager to embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Please keep them all in your prayers as they begin their journey to high school. May God bless them always!


Quote from Pope Francis:

"Listen to the Holy Spirit because he is giving people the good news that God loves them and can renew, purify and transform their lives."


Faithfully yours,

Miss Giaquinto

News from the Nurse 
 
Dear Parents,

Just a few reminders to keep your child healthy during the last few weeks of school.  
                  
  • Seasonal Allergies- flowers/trees have bloomed and are very pretty, but environmental allergies are on the rise and may cause itchy eyes, sneezing, runny noses, coughs and mild coughing at times. Check with your pediatrician if your child is affected.
  • Illnesses - Please report any illness to the nurse, especially any rashes, fevers and or communicable diseases.
  • Ticks- The school grounds are treated for ticks during the Spring. Remember to check your child daily and after being outdoors. Helpful info: www.cdc.gov/ticks
  • Water bottles - Please make sure your child has their own reusable water bottle with them at school to remain hydrated as the temperatures warm up.
  • Physical Exams - Reminder: Students in 3rd and 6th grade are required to have a current physical exam dated between June 1st 2017 and June 1st 2018, in accordance with CT statutes and the Trumbull Board of Education's policy on physical health assessments. Remember to send your child's physical to the nurse,by end of the school day on Friday June 1st, to avoid exclusion from school on Monday, June 4, 2018.
