Quick Updates

Bicycle Safety: As the weather continues to get warmer, we often see an increase in students riding their bikes to school. Please note that students must wear their helmet at all times while riding their bicycle. If by chance a student arrives to school on a bicycle without a helmet, we do not let them ride their bicycle home, and parents must come to school to either pick up their child or drop off a helmet. Thank you for your cooperation.

PTA Pizza Day on 6/6/18 for students in Prek4-7th Grade only. 8th grade students will be leaving after their awards ceremony, therefore they will not be having lunch at SCS

SCS FUN DAY May 31st: We can't wait for SCS FUN DAY! Please see flyer included in this brief for special details.

Run with Veronica! 5k & One-Mile Fun Run June 16th

On Saturday, June 16th, we will all Run with Veronica, to defeat Hodgkin Lymphoma and support the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Veronica Szenzenstein, SCS class of 2017, and current freshman at Trinity Hall, has been battling stage four Hodgkin Lymphoma for the past several months. In collaboration with the New Jersey State Police, Trinity Hall, and the Spring Lake Police Department, we have scheduled a 5K and One-Mile Fun Run for all of our students, family members, parishioners, and friends to come together to run with and support Veronica and all of our loved ones that may be currently battling cancer.

Student Council News

The student council is having one last collection for the school year. As our nation just celebrated Memorial Day, we are collecting cans and microwaveable food to benefit our homeless veterans. All donations will be sent to the Bill Reeves Food Pantry at Vetwork. The late Mr. Reeves, a tireless volunteer for our veterans in need, is the grandfather of 8th grader Michael Liddy.

We are asking that each student bring in at least one item to donate to this cause. Summer is a slow time for donations to many of our area’s food banks and many run low on food items. Please help our veterans who served our country proudly!

The drive will begin on Thursday, May 31st and end on Thursday, June 7th.
