Hello Everyone,


On Tuesday, March 17 and Thursday, March 19 the high school will be hosting parent-teacher conferences from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Conferences can be scheduled in 15-minute increments. If you need to meet with a teacher outside the scheduled times please contact that teacher directly to make the appropriate arrangements.


Once again, we will be using Skyward to schedule all conferences. I will be sending instructions for how to schedule conferences early next week.


We look forward to seeing you at conferences.

What does "students first" look like at SCC?

  • We stand in the gap between what is and what could be.
  • We find solutions - we don't blame kids.
  • We circle around them in support - always.
  • We freely give what they need.
  • We recognize their poor choices and guide them to make better choices.
  • We do things that are inconvenient for the adults because it's what's best for the students.
  • We try the next thing because we never let them run out of chances.
  • We provide physical, mental, and emotional safety - no matter what.
  • We model what we expect.
  • We love all of them.
