Important Notice…We are now accepting appointments for Kindergarten registration. Registration begins on Feb. 27 through March 3. Please contact the main office if you have an incoming Kindergartner. I ask that you also spread the word. It is important for me to know early on how many new sharks we will have so I can staff appropriately. Thanks so much.

Monday, January 30...Mascot Madness BEGINS!!!!!!!!
Mascot Madness is a BIG deal at SC. A few years ago, Dr. Mussoline wanted to challenge our school community to a friendly competition related to healthy life styles. For 3 weeks, students and staff log in time spent daily on some kind of physical activity. The scores are compared to the other DASD schools. Well, SC is always up to a challenge and for 3 out of the last 4 years, we won the Elementary division. (Actually, we won for the whole district so many times that they had to come up with a leveled system!!!) Not only do we get a huge trophy, but we can win up to $500 to use for wellness initiatives at SC. Woot Woot! (Now many of you probably already know this, but Mrs. Copeland and Mrs. Adams will retire at the end of this year. They have been a major force in our positive school climate in oh so many ways and I would love to bring home one more win…just for them!)
Academically, we are Number#1 in all four of the Philadelphia counties and Number #7 in the State. Let’s show how well rounded we are! (See how I work that stuff in???)
More info to come soon.
Stay warm and dry…
