SCS Happenings: March 29, 2022

Saint Catharine of Siena, pray for us.

From One Wildcat to Another...

"May we stand in solidarity today with all our brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering especially in Ukraine. May we be united in your love, and may we work to build your kingdom here on earth.”

Please be assured of my prayers for you and your families during these 40 Days of Lent.

Thank you for all you do, SCS Community, for making this a school like no other. We are truly blessed.

Air high fives to all,

Mrs. Marcella Kraycik
