Welcome Back! We are thrilled to start a new school year at SCS! Students enjoyed a great start to school by gathering on our newly resurfaced basketball courts, next to our new and improved playground area! We thank our school and parish community for your continued support through our school fundraisers that help our school continue to grow and develop in so many ways.


We will continue to utilize our SCS Wednesday News Brief for a weekly update, please look for it to be sent to you via email every Wednesday, as well as being posted on our school website, school Twitter account, and school Facebook page.


As we look forward to a year full of special events for our school community, we invite you all to join us for a special mass to bless our new playground area on Saturday, September 9th at 4:00 PM, sharp. After mass, we welcome our families and parish members to stay and enjoy our new recess area. We encourage everyone to bring food and beverage for a fun picnic after mass. We look forward to seeing all of you!


Terra Novas: After a long summer (and spring) waiting for the Terra Nova home reports, we received them right before Labor Day weekend and they are prepared to go home with your child. All students will be bringing their Terra Nova home reports home today, Wednesday, September 6th in a white envelope. Please be sure to look for them and ask your child for the envelope as they arrive home today.

Alumni Spotlight

Sr. Carole introduced Sr. Karen Schneider to Curran Magnusson and Connor Martin who are interested in traveling to Nigeria with her team of American physicians, residents, and nurses. Sister Karen is a pediatrician from Johns Hopkins Hospital who travels extensively to Haiti and Africa to provide medical assistance to children. Curran attends the Academy of Allied Health and Science and Connor is a student at Communications High School. Both boys are juniors in school and have been interested in the African journey since they were Sr. Carole’s students at St. Catharine School. Parents Barbara Magnusson and Maureen Martin were present at the preparatory meeting for the boys’ August trip with many questions and a Nigerian checklist that was being explained by Sr. Karen.
