Shoes and bookbags for STEM Families in Need:
Parents or guardian, if you and your family are currently experiencing an economic hardship and your children are in need of new shoes or book bags, please email Ms. Rachel Newsome at email@example.com and submit the google form via the link below by Sunday, October 3rd. Your request will be kept confidential.
Assistance for Families in Need
We have a great opportunity for STEM families in need who are currently experiencing an economic hardship. We have an organization who will help support our families with some boxes of staple food items with a one to two time distribution. We also have an organization who will be providing nutritious food/snacks for students who may otherwise not have enough food on the weekends. That program will begin in about 2 to 3 weeks. Students will be able to pick up the weekend healthy snack food items on Friday afternoons before bus dismissal.
For the boxed staple food items, parents will need to personally pick up those items as they will not be able to be transported by your child on the bus (additional details coming soon for parents who sign up). Please submit your request for food items by using the link below by this upcoming Wednesday, September 29th by COB. Your request for assistance will be treated with the utmost discretion.
Once you sign up, you will receive a consent form to sign and return. If you have any further questions, please email Rachel.Newsome@sccpss.com Thank you!

__ $5 I do not want to bake, so here is money I would have spent on those cupcakes.
__$10 I do not want to hit up friends, family, and co-workers, so here is the money I would have hoped that they would have given my kid,
__$20 I do not want to walk, swim, or run in any activity with the word “thon” in it. Here is the money that I would have spent on my child’s participation shirt for that event.
__$75 I don’t want to attend any fancy dances or any event that requires for me to get out of my loungewear. Here is the money I would have spent on an outfit for an event.
