Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of November 12.
Mark your calendars for Monday, November 12 when school will be closed in honor of Veterans Day. We would like to thank our SCS Veterans—Ms. Vanessa Barnes, Ms. Veronica Black, Ms. Elizabeth Sims, and Mr. David Hartwell—for their service to our country.
SCS Red Cross Blood Drive
SCS will be hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive on November 13th from 11:00-3:30. Due to the recent hurricanes, the Red Cross blood supply is extremely low. Donation appointments are open to anyone in the community and all blood donated during our drive will help our students earn scholarship funds from the Red Cross. All students can donate at age 17 and those age 16 can donate with parental permission. Please visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code CREATIVE to sign up for a donation appointment. Contact Dr. Rathbone for more information.
Progress Reports will go home with students on Wednesday, November 14.
Student PTSA Meetings
There will be a meeting of Student PTSA during lunches on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. We will also meet Friday afterschool. This is in practice for the Fall Carnival activities. If you have questions, please see PTSA Vice-President, Ms. Purnell-Mitchell, during your lunch period.
On Sunday, November 18 from 2 – 5 pm, SCS will be hosting a Fall Carnival! This is a family and community event! We will have activities, inflatables, games, prizes, candy, food and even a haunted house! The cost to enter the carnival is $5 ($3 for kids 6 and under). The activities and games, with the exception of concessions and the haunted house, are included in the price of admission. Come spend a fun afternoon with your family and us!

Safe Driving in our Parking Areas
Parents and student drivers, please be mindful of your speed when exiting the parking lot in front of the building. We have witnessed several occurrences that could have resulted in serious injury to our students, staff, and visitors. Parents, as a safety precaution, students are to enter and exit your vehicle from the sidewalk. Please do not encourage your child to walk around and enter your vehicle since this presents a potentially dangerous situation. We care about the safety of all of our students, staff, and families. Additionally, when picking students up, please pull all the way up to the next available spot and follow the directions of the SCS staff members who are directing traffic.
Freshman/Sophomore Winter Formal
The 2018 Freshman/Sophomore Winter Formal hosted by the Prom Committee/YMA will be held December 8 in the gym from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m. The cost will be $25 per person and your guest must be a current student in high school. If you are bringing a non-SCS student, then you must get a permission slip from Coach Barnes or Ms. Street and it must be returned before Thanksgiving Break. Light refreshments will be served. You must be a freshman or sophomore to purchase a ticket, but you may invite an upperclassman.
Parents and students, did you know that you can start practicing now for the ACT? In February 2019, all 11th grade students will take the ACT. You and your child can visit https://academy.act.org/ to start preparing for this exam now.
Have a good evening from all of us at SCS where we practice the 4C’s—Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Community.
