Dear Parents,

The month of October's Gospel Value is Community. The word community is defined as a feeling of fellowship shared with others. When thinking of time spent together in fellowship, our Annual Family Movie Night came to my mind. This SCSS community event starts our school year off and was a joyful time for everyone.  The sound of our school children laughing and sitting with their families and friends was a wonderful sight to see and warmed my heart. The amount of support from our school families that were sharing in this fun and excitement was amazing. You could actually feel and experience the true sense of the community in the air. 


Quote from Pope Francis:

"May nothing keep you from growing in friendship 
with God."


We share friendship with God when we grow in our friendship with each other. Being together as a community in our faith and in our lives helps us become closer to God. As we continue to grow in our friendship within our SCSS family, may we also bring this closeness of friendship to our Lord through prayer and in the celebration of the Eucharist.


Faithfully Yours,

Miss Giaquinto

Walk-A-Thon News
 


Our Walkathon preparation is well underway! The writing campaign letters have gone out. Our goal is for each walker to raise $100. Collections are coming in; to date we have raised approximately $3,800.00.

Each student who has reached the $100 goal will receive a SCSS Baseball Cap with our school logo on it.     

For every $50 a student raises they will receive a raffle ticket to be put into a drawing for a gift card.  

Congratulations to our first winner:

Special Visit From Our Very 
Own BeeKeeper!

Mrs. McCloat's Pre-K4 class is working on the letters of the alphabet.  Last week they explored the Letter Bb 
and learned about bees.  

Mrs. Turner visited preschool and talked with the children all about her honeybees and how she takes care of them.  Mrs. Turner brought in some of the 
honey that her bees made.
