Busy Week at SCS!

 NAEYC Accreditation Visit Behind Us:  Every 5 years our school undergoes a year-long self-study and preparation that culminates in a visit by members of the National Association for the Education of Young Children.  Well, they surprised us in choosing two days this week, and although it was a bit stressful to be observed, rated, poked, and prodded, all went smoothly.  Previous re-accreditations have resulted in SCS being rated "Excellent" and this time should be no different.  High standards, excellent teachers, a great facility, and our dedication to every child is what truly sets our school apart.  Only 8% of childcare centers in the US are accredited by NAEYC - that's 92% who are not!

 Teachers Appreciated During the Week:  Clearly our ECE and PEAK teachers deserve every accolade they earn but wow, they were certainly shown the love this week during Teacher Appreciation Week!  Our Parents Committee provided wonderful gifts each day in the forms of lunches, breakfasts, and classroom supplies, and our administrators washed teacher's cars on Tuesday.  But the most amazing gift of all was the announcement of a "Spring Bonus" for the entire faculty from the Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting Thursday night!  The teachers were incredibly thankful.  Thanks to EVERYONE who made this such a super week to show appreciation for all of those who dedicate their careers to helping children!

 Give With Liberty:  Each year a crew from Liberty Mutual Insurance arrives at the campus and puts in a hard day of dedicated work for our school, and they showed up this Friday along with the great weather.   The Give With Liberty program allows organizations such as ours to benefit from the efforts of employees who want to give back to their local communities.  This year spreading over 25 sq yds of wood chips on the back playground provided the crew of workers a full morning of giving!  Thanks to everyone who helped us out today!

 Ticks: Yes, it's that season again and as we are a school that loves to take kids outside where those little critters are awaitin' to hop a ride, we are taking healthy precautions at PEAK sites and the ECE Campus programs.  This year we are being extra careful as it is projected to be a busy season for the buggers.  Regular tick checks, bug spray, covering clothing, and carefully planned trips outside are our watchwords, but be sure to check your own kids regularly too!
