A Note from Mrs. Patterson

Happy Friday!

Re-registration is open for next year. See the School Announcements section below for more information. New registration is also open, so if you have friends who might be interested in attending SCVCS, share that with them!

It's time to nominate a teacher for the Teacher of the Month for March. Use the link below to do that.

Don't forget our town hall meeting today at 10am. The link is under the Learning Coach Corner, but I want all students to attend. We have some very important topics to cover today. Here is our agenda for today's meeting:

  • Re-Registration
  • Grade Promotion Requirements and Summer School
  • Cyberbullying and Harassment
  • Upcoming Topics in Advisory
  • Course Selection for 23 -24
  • An overview of Middle School for Rising 5th Graders

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Weekly Assignments

Weekly Assignments Calendars are available by team. Your child's team number can be found at the top of their schedule that you received from the counselor. You can also tell this from Schoology. Find the student's homeroom class on the student's Courses page. The section number is their team number. We are trying out a new format. I hope you like it!

Weekly Assignment Calendars

Assignments are due on the date shown on the assignment calendar. Students have until Sunday at midnight of that week to submit these assignments for full credit. After that, students will have one additional week to submit work for 80% credit. After two weeks, assignments will close.

Elective class assignments can be found on the Assignment Calendars found inside of the course.

Sensational Salamanders

Today, we have an art piece from Kirra T. in the 6th grade. Beautiful work!

Want to share some original artwork, poetry, short story, or something else creative that you do? Send it to Mrs. Patterson at mpatterson@scvcs.org. It must by your own original work!

Jigsaw and Google

Students, please make sure you are using your SCVCS gmail account when logging into Jigsaw and when you do anything with Google Drive. Some of you are using personal email accounts, which will cause you some issues with accessing live classes or completing assignments using Google. If you need assistance with your Gmail accounts, please contact our tech support at 803-253-6222 and choose Option 5.

Online enrollment for current students to re-register for the 2023-2024 school year must be completed to secure your spot. Please log into your PowerSchool Parent Portal at this link: https://cie.powerschool.com/public/home.html and use your parent login – if you log in as the student you will not see the Intent to Return link. The link for Intent to Return is all the way at the bottom of the left side of the screen.

If your student will not be returning to SCVCS, please complete the form by answering "No" to the first question. This allows us to open seats for additional students as we plan for next year.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance by contacting our office at 803-253-6222 option 3, emailing us at enrollment@scvcs.org, or you can visit our website at www.scvcs.org.
