Grade 8 & 9 Friend Requests

At SCS, we recognize that healthy relationships in classrooms promote productive learning environments. Our staff endeavour to promote healthy relationships in every classroom. To this end, we offer students an opportunity to request friends they would like in their classes. While we cannot guarantee that every request will be honoured, our intent is to have requested friends together in at least one class each semester (homeroom or an option class). Please spend time discussing the friends that contribute to a positive learning environment for your child prior to completing this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScdUrhBBMjxUmzzVO6mHCCNZG9UTRpAXC2pLsPIywuziwKFuA/viewform

Requests to change classes in the fall will only be considered for extenuating circumstances only. Thank you for your understanding.

All requests due Monday, June 12th at 9:00am.

All-School Year End BBQ - June 14th

It is once again time to think about our annual year-end All-School BBQ. It is a great time to celebrate and thank God for the year He has brought us through again.

We also use this time to invite the adult leaders from various groups that have supported us ie: Elders, Society Board, School Council, Parents in Partnership etc… Please invite your group to join us if they can.

Come on June 14 from 11:00am to 1:00pm and be ready to serve anywhere. It is a panic for the lunch hour and then it’s over – but what a great time it is.

Who wouldn’t like feeding 600 hungry teenagers?

Please email general.scs@eips.ca to volunteer!

All Library Books due June 16th

Happy June! It's hard to believe that this school year is almost over.

The auction will conclude on Wednesday, June 7th, 2023, at 9pm. The winning bidder(s) will be contacted via email. Once contacted, the winner(s) will have the opportunity to arrange payment and schedule a pickup time with Mr. Botchey.

Missing SCA Wear

If your son or daughter participated in either cross country or track in the last few years, could you please check to see if you have any of the attached SCA wear at home? These items were supposed to be returned after the season ended. Unfortunately, we have been forced to buy new ones each year as they have not been returned, resulting in a considerable financial burden on the athletic department. Your help in resolving this matter would be greatly appreciated.
