Dear Parents and Friends,
January has been a relatively quiet, productive month for us at SCS. We're just over half way through the school year -- today is the 93rd day of school. We often see some of the most obvious growth in student learning during the winter months.
Parent - Student - Teacher Conferences are just around the corner, when new goals will be developed for the remainder of the year. Teachers have started scheduling conferences for February 12, 15 & 16. These conferences are a fundamental part of helping students take responsibility for their own learning, and we deeply appreciate the effort of all our parents to carve out time to attend and participate.
Our strange winter weather has not been helpful in creating consistency with student outdoor attire. We do not allow students to play off of the plowed blacktop surfaces unless they have winter boots and snow pants. We encourage students who ride the bus to and from school to wear their winter gear in case of a bus breakdown.
