SCS Birthday Bus Hits the Portsmouth Holiday Parade!:  Mr. Troy and Company made the yearly appearance in the Holiday Parade memorable as the SCS Bus replete with birthday balloons, streamers, and smiling faculty made it's way through town.  After handing out over 200 birthday hats, party noisemakers and stickers, hundreds of kids and parents cheered as we were introduced at the reviewing stand as celebrating our 50th! 

  Spirit Week starts on Monday Being in the spirit of the season means dressing up for fun every day during Spirit Week at SCS and it starts next Monday 12/18 and runs right through Pajama Day on Friday!  Prizes will be awarded for highest percentage of participants per class.  PEAK Sites will be participating too!  Help your little ones show their spirit by following the schedule below: 

Monday: Holiday Colors Day

Tuesday: Classroom Choice Day

Wednesday: Crazy Socks Day

Thursday: Holiday Hats Day

Friday: Pajama Day

 $50,000 Annual Fund Well on the Way: Crazy but true - we have raised over $14,000 for the SCS Annual Fund so far and we are well on the way to our tremendous Anniversary Goal of $50K!  With 100% Board participation we kicked off the campaign in fine style.  Did you know that you may not be able to itemize your charitable contributions after January 1st in the new tax bill?  PLEASE GIVE NOW in 2017 to itemize your gift and to help a good school be even better!!  Click here:

 New SchoolCareWorks Computer System to launch January 8th.  SCS will move into the Digital Age next semester as we launch the first phase of the new administration software system.  In seven of the preschool and toddler classes parents will need to enter a PIN to pick up and drop off their kids, and we will be taking a huge step toward making life easier for everyone.  Other classes and PEAK sites will follow shortly after.  Look for the parent emails that will explain it all in the coming weeks.

Are you looking for a night out with friends?  Is your inner DIY itching for a fun new project without having to buy all your own supplies and make a mess at your house?  Then BOOK A CLASS at Board & Brush Creative Studio in Portsmouth.  On January 14th, 2018 at 3pm, Board and Brush is donating 20% of proceeds to Seacoast Community School!  Grab a friend and spend a great afternoon creating something new!  Sarah Fleck will be there with treats and prizes.  Sign up today so you don't miss out!
Pounding the Door Openers - Not Very Neighborly: Yes, it is so much fun to operate the main doors to the Community Campus Building by pressing the auto-openers but please do not let kids pound on them!  Just like behaving in the hallways by not running, please respect our handicapped neighbors.  The switches have been replaced twice in the last year so let's try to keep that from happening again.
