A Note from Mrs. Patterson

Happy Friday!

I want to thank all of you for your kind emails after the death of my grandfather. I am still out of state but will be back next week. I sadly will miss the zoo outing today, but I hope that those of you that attend have a great time!

Quick reminder...Monday is a holiday, so there is no school. We will see you back on Tuesday.

Re-registration starts today. You received an email yesterday with instructions. We would love to have you back at SCVCS next year! If you are on the fence, give me or your counselor a call and we can answer any questions you have.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mrs. P

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.
