Weekly Message–January 7-11, 2019

Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of January 7. I hope that everyone had a restful, enjoyable break. We’re looking forward to seeing all of our students back tomorrow.


Report Cards

Report Cards will go home with students Thursday, January 10. As usual, please review the important documents in the report card envelope and return the envelope signed.


Benchmark Assessments

Mid-year Benchmark assessments will be given during the window January 14 – 25.   Teachers will spend some time reviewing prior to administration. 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. 


Winter Formal

The Winter Formal has been rescheduled for Saturday, January 12 7:00 – 11:00 p.m.  Tickets are still for sale–$25 through Friday and $30 at the door on Saturday. Freshmen and sophomores are eligible to purchase tickets.


Magnet Lottery

Parents, a reminder that if you have a sibling that you wish to attend our school, the sibling must be entered into the DPS magnet lottery and linked to the current student in the online lottery application. Siblings are only eligible for priority seating if SCS is first choice in the lottery selection and if the sibling resides at the same address as the current student. A seat must be available in the grade applied for to receive priority seating. The DPS magnet lottery can be accessed online at  https://www.dpsnc.net/ and the deadline is January 31st, 2019 at 5:00pm. Please contact our Magnet Coordinator, Dr. Rita Rathbone with questions related to sibling priority seating.
