Weekly Message–December 10 – 14, 2018

Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of December 10.

Benchmark Assessments

We will still administer benchmark assessments this week. Middle school students will begin with ELA tomorrow after lunch. High school will begin on Thursday.  Remember that we use the results of these assessments to plan future classroom instructional planning and to develop lunch, afterschool, Saturday and intersession intervention time as necessary for students. Please encourage students to do their best. 

CollegeBoard Scholarships

*Class of 2020 CollegeBoard is now offering Opportunity Scholarships.  This scholarship DOES NOT require an essay, application, or minimum GPA.  You earn scholarship money by building your college list, practicing for the SAT, improving your SAT score, strengthening your college list, completing your FAFSA, and applying to college.  To sign up please visit https://opportunity.collegeboard.org 

Pre-ACT Booklets

Parents of 10th grade students, your child received their official score report and test booklet for the Pre-ACT on Friday, December 7. Please be sure to ask them for these documents and retain the score report for future records.  The score reports provide insight about how your child is projected to perform on the ACT.  Your child can use this information to start preparing for the ACT which they will take during their junior year.  

SCS T-shirt Orders

The new SCS T-shirt designs are ready to be ordered!!!!  Please check the PTSA website and flyers that will come home this week for ordering and pricing information.

SkyZone Spirit Night

The SCS PTSA will host a spirit night fundraiser at Sky Zone this Friday, December 14th from 6pm – 10pm.  Please check the PTSA website and flyers that will come home this week, for ordering tickets and pricing information.

ACT Practice

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.

 End of Quarter/Intersession

Monday, December 17 is now an inclement weather make-up day and will become the last day of the 2nd quarter.

The winter intersession for students is December 18 – January 4.  Teachers will not be available during the break, so make sure that you are proactive in communicating with them now! This is also important for seniors who are completing college applications…don’t wait until the last minute to ask for transcripts and letters of recommendations!

Have a good evening from all of us at SCS where we practice the 4C’s—Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Community.
