SCS Invites Returning Families to a Safe School: When we reopened the school in June we gave all current families the choice of returning to SCS right away or waiting until the end of summer. About 60% of families re-enrolled immediately, while the remainder chose September. Well, here we are and over 90% of our "prodigal" families have returned to SCS once again! Our record of running a safe school through small class sizes, distanced class groups, screening, and mask wearing has left us with a sterling record against infections - and we fully plan on keeping that record intact!
SCS Parents Committee Needs You! The SCS Parents Committee will be forming up soon for the 2020-21 school year - WE NEED YOUR HELP! Be involved in making SCS the best it can be by joining a great group of folks who want to have fun doing it. Contact Marketing and Development Coordinator Sarah Fleck at SFleck@Seacoastcommunityschool.org now!
Imagination Library Keeps the Free Books Flowing: Upon entering SCS every new student under the age of 5 is offered the opportunity to join our school reading initiative called Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. Free, brand new, reading books arrive monthly to children - starting with the introductory book "The Little Engine That Could". The book selections are refreshed each year but contain popular repeats and classics too. If you are enrolled in SCS (or have non-SCS siblings under 5) and are not already signed up, you can get free reading books too. Just contact Amie Cole in the main office at ACole@Seacoastcommunityschool.org. The books are age appropriate, and intended to be read by parents to their kids. The Portsmouth Elks have sponsored our free book program for the past few years!
