From Mr. Soderberg

Hello SCC Families,

I hope your summer has been enjoyable and filled with great memories. As we prepare for the 2019-2020 school year, I would like to share some information about what you can expect this year.

Homeroom and WIN (What I Need): All students will be assigned to a daily Homeroom and WIN during 9th-period each day. The first 10 minutes of the period will be dedicated to homeroom activities and topics while the final 30 minutes will be used for academic intervention, support, and work time

"Day One"

Thursday, August 29th is designated as "Day One" and will operate as a normal school day (8:00 am - 3:20 pm). However, this day will be set aside as an orientation day for incoming freshmen and other new students (i.e. transfer and exchange students optional) only.

Along with the high school staff, a group of upperclassmen who have volunteered to be part of our "Pathfinders" leadership group will be working with the freshmen and new students to help with their smooth transition to the high school.

We ask any students who are not directly involved with "Day One" to stay out of the high school and off the property between 7:30 am and 3:20 pm.

  • Normal bus routes will be available and the school will be open each day by 6:00 am.
  • If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Klein (

10th through 12th-grade students will begin school on Friday, August 30th.

2019 - 2020 Student Class Schedules: The 2019-2020 student schedules will be available via Skyward prior to the open house on August 21st. Students are encouraged to access their schedule via Skyward.

If students would like to request schedule changes, they may email their assigned counselor.

Picture Retakes:

Picture retakes will take place on Thursday, October 3rd.

As always, I look forward to working with our families, students, and staff to maximize our positive impact on student learning and personal growth.

Go Panthers,

Mr. Soderberg
