SSCD Newsletter

February 2020


January has started off another great year for SSCD!  Our new Library Lounge is full of comfortable places to share books with friends. We continue to strive for excellence in Catholic Education by participating in maintaining our Middle States Accreditation. “Involvement in an ongoing accreditation protocol recognizes achievement and fosters and facilitates ongoing school improvement.” Not only do we want to be our best as a school, we want our students to become the best version of themselves.  SSCD participated in The Great Kindness Challenge. The Deputy Phil Program presented information on safety, manners, respect and more to our kindergarten through 3rd grade students. We are prepared for our flexible instruction emergency days, please use one lesson for each snow day and return completed lesson upon return to school. Our 100th day of school, Feature a Friend, SSCD Starbooks and Groundhog Day celebrations made Catholic Schools Week even more special! We are looking forward to another new opportunity for our school to raise funds by participating in an online School Store.  Information will be sent home the first week in February.  Bring a friend to SSCD Open House Feb. 16th 12-2 pm, a kindergarten information meeting will be held at 2 pm.
