SCA Reenrollment for 2016-17 - Don't miss the reenrollment discount!

It's hard to believe it is that time of year again! January 19 is the first day of reenrollment for current families. A letter and instructions were sent home on January 15 in your student's backpack and reenrollment can be completed online again this year. We are already receiving many inquiry calls for the 2016-17 school year and have already received several completed applications from new families. New families from covenant churches can enroll starting on February 16 and open enrollment begins on March 1, so we encourage you to enroll early. Families reenrolling by March 1 will receive a discount on the enrollment fee.

If you have any questions, contact Metra Augustin at 816-525-1480.

"Our Flag" Poem

-Author Unknown

You may call it an old piece of bunting;

You may call it an old tattered rag;

But thousands have died for its honor

And shed their best blood for the flag.

You may call it an old piece of bunting;

You may call it an old tattered rag;

But Freedom has made it majestic;

And Time has ennobled Our Flag.
