Saints Spotlight

January/ February 2019

From the Principal's Desk

This time of year brings many changes to our students and student programming. The first semester comes to a conclusion with exams on Jan 23rd, 24th, & 25th.


The 2nd Semester begins on Jan 28th and immediately brings the next round of important school events including the SCCRESA TEC Feb 21st Open House, Student Course Selection for the 2019-2020 School Year, and preparation/ administration of the NWEA and SAT/PSAT tests.


Our Teachers, Counselors, Coaches/Sponsors and Administrators are sending out reminders via email, Facebook, Twitter, and Remind. Please make sure your contact information is up to date in Skyward and that you follow or connect to one or more of those social media options.


Also, the start of the 2nd Semester is a chance for students to have a fresh start. We ask that all parents/families encourage their student(s) to do those things we know help students and young people to develop into healthy adults:


  • Prepare for bed time with a break from all personal electronic devices
  • Drink several glasses of water throughout the day
  • Eat balanced meals
  • Enjoy healthy snacks in right sized portions
  • Exercise and enjoy outdoor activities each day
  • Spend personal time with friends and family without the interruption of electronic devices
  • Invest time into take home school work, academic reading, and course reviewing as part of a daily/nightly routine. When focused, this should take 30-60 minutes
  • Talk to Teachers, Counselors, or Administrators when you have questions or concerns



The overwhelming majority of SCHS students enjoy a safe and successful school experience. We are looking forward to working with your student this 2nd Semester to help them develop into more healthy and confident young adults.


As always, if I can answer questions please contact me directly rmiller@ecsd.us or 8106761705.


Thank you, RCMiller
