Weekly Message–February 11-15, 2019

Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of February 11.

Revised Report Cards

Corrected report cards for students in grades 6-10 were sent home Friday. The glitches in the state PowerTeacher grade book program did not cause changes to all student report cards, but all students received a new report card after the technical fixes were made. Report cards for students in grades 11 and 12 will come home this week. Please contact Ms. Fleming if you have any questions.

Please encourage students to recognize our bus drivers and remind them of safe riding practices. Our Bus drivers greatly appreciate it and the safety of all students and drivers depends on it!
