Administration Corner
I am simply amazed how time and time again SCCS families answer the call! Last week, I asked a few families to help make bake goods for a “love thy neighbor” campaign....

Many thanks go out to the families, staff, and friends who took their entire Saturday and Sunday to get the playground ready for the kids on Monday. I have never been so proud to serve at a school as I was this past weekend. The dedication and love for your children and their classmates is beautiful ...
