Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of October 30, 2017.
Halloween is Tuesday. Students will be allowed to wear their costumes to school. Costumes must be dress-code compliant and props need to stay at home. No masks or head coverings are allowed. Anything that appears to be disruptive will need to be changed. If students have questions about the appropriateness of their costume, they should check with an administrator in advance or bring a change of clothes with them on Tuesday.
You’ve been waiting for it and it’s here…the PTSA Spirit Wear sale is right around the corner. Look for information to come home soon and make sure you get your orders in by the deadline!
Our first SCS blood drive is next Wednesday, November 1st, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. Help us reach our goal of 100 pints of blood. In addition to all the other great reasons to give blood, SCS will earn scholarship money for our students for each pint donated. Please tell your neighbors, friends, family, and coworkers! Online appointment registration is quick and easy at http://www.redcrossblood.org, sponsor code CREATIVE. Students must be at least 16 to give blood (parental consent is required for 16 year-olds and the form is located here: https://p.widencdn.net/3tdl9q).
Mrs. Settle is having a high school parent night on November 7th. 9th -10th grade parents should arrive at 5:30 with the meeting concluding at 6pm to discuss high school graduation requirements and to begin with college planning. 11th -12th grade parents should arrive at 6:15 with meeting concluding at 7pm to discuss financial aid, residency determination, and general college preparation information. This is an important evening of information and we hope to see all high school parents in attendance.
To High School Parents: Members of the military will be coming to SCS on the afternoon of Thursday, November 9th, 2017. High School students will come home with the consent form on Monday, October 30th. Please be on the look out for the form and return it to the school by Wednesday, November 8th. Students will not be allowed to speak with the representatives without the consent form. Phone call and email permissions will not be accepted, and we must have the list of participating students in advance of the event. Please adhere to the deadline of November 8th. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Settle.
We will send home a paper survey this week from PTSA so students can give us feedback about our Boxtops Collection Campaign. Please encourage students to return these because we want to hear from them. PTSA also wants to hear from parents, so an electronic survey is being launched this week for you! The link will be placed on the website, Facebook, and my blog.
The PTSA is sponsoring a men’s clothing drive Nov 6 through Nov. 20. This is to support the Urban Ministries of Durham which is in very short supply and receives very few donations of men’s clothing. Please drop off your donations to the SCS front lobby during office hours.
Have a great evening from all of us at SCS where we practice the 4c’s—Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, and Community.
