Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of October 26th.
Report cards went home with students last Friday. Please make sure that you have signed the envelope and sent it back to your child’s homeroom teacher.
Middle and High School Parents are invited to College Night, October 27th 6-8 p.m. at the DPS Staff Development Center 2107 Hillandale Road. The time is now to prepare for college. Join College Fund of North Carolina (CFNC) and the Advanced Academics Team to receive helpful information on how to prepare, pay for and choose a college. Parents will also learn about SAT and ACT assessments taken by students starting as early as 8th grade in NC, how to prepare for them, and how to use the results to advocate for your children. Spanish translation will be available.
The Glow Dance Party will be held Friday, October 30th from 4:30 to 6:30 in the gym. Admission is $5. This is for middle school and high school students who will be given their own sections in the gym. Tickets, raffle tickets, and glow items like glasses and sticks will be sold this week during all lunch periods. When you purchase a ticket, you can submit music requests. Don’t miss out on your chance to shine—or glow!
The ACT ASPIRE assessment that was being planned for 8th grade students will not be given this school year.
The 9th graders will be traveling to UNC-Chapel Hill for a field on October 28th.
The 8th graders will take this same field trip on November 6th.
We have a few outstanding teachers and students we would like to highlight. Ms. Barnes’ Creative Entrepreneurship and Marketing students won first place (out of 17 schools) in the Stock Market Simulation last week. Ms. Crump has been chosen to be a member of the Teacher Advisory Group for the K-12 Design Lab at NC State. This is a very select honor and will strengthen our relationship with NC State’s Design College. And Ms. Wolf’s high school art department placed 6th in the state at the NC State Fair. Check out the artwork on Facebook! It’s a delight to highlight all of the incredible things that our students are doing at SCS.
Have a great evening and even more awesome week!
