With May upon us, we are racing to the finish of another fantastic school year! Before we go in full celebration mode for our Class of 2018, we want to share a few communication milestones to help you plan your summer and back-to-school deadlines.
SCA knows you're busy! We'll get your back-to-school supply shopping done for you. Sign up online before summer to clear it off your list and get the best prices. Prices will go up as the summer progresses. School supplies purchased through SCA will be ready and waiting in your child's classroom right before school starts next year, saving you time and money.
Registration for summer camp is open online. Three new JK camps just added! In addition to new themes and activities in the summer day camp, there are more adventures for all ages, and camps for foreign language, STEAM, coding, dolls, chefs, animal lovers - even some for parents!
At the Middle School Awards Assembly, awards were given in a variety of categories including: Academics, Arts, Film and Animation, Reading, Battle of the Books, Thespians, LEGO Robotics, World Languages, Science Fair, History Fair, Geography Bee, and Duke TIP SAT/ACT scores. Special awards were also given highlighting exceptional student characters, such as the Harold Bruggeman Award and Citizen of the Year Awards.
Each year, eighth graders are challenged to find something they are passionate about, a talent they want to develop more, or something to take on as an independent project. These are known as their Passion Projects. At the end of the year, they are revealed on campus in a project showcase.
As a culminating project of the Hero’s Journey unit and the reading of "The Hobbit" in English class, sixth graders re-told the story of Bilbo Baggins' adventures in stop-motion animation format using LEGOs and other found objects.
