Summer News!

 SCS Summer PEAK Returns!:  Each year kids and families look forward to the amazing program we call Summer PEAK!  Fun days, field trips, pool time and many other great activities become the highlight of the season for many SCS kids.  New this year, the separate-but-just-as-fun KPEAK Kindergarteners program opened with fanfare.  Designed to help working families with extended hours and a flexible enrollment schedule, the K-5 program uses Little Harbour School as a base camp.  Also new this year was the online registration that allowed families to choose any day they wanted to attend as long as there were openings.  If you are interested in extra days of fun this summer we have a few scattered slots open so please contact the school 603-422-8223.

 Memorial Bridge 5K Road Race October 7th, 2018:  Sign-ups for our annual road race are now open and this year we are once again guaranteeing a great race/run experience!  Starting in Kittery and passing over the huge Memorial Bridge, the 3.2 mile race takes a gentle loop through nice Portsmouth neighborhoods.  The course is flat and fast so get your running shoes on and make this a culmination of your summer exercise program.  Kids are welcome to run too, and there is a "Kids Run" for real little ones at the end, which is always a lot of fun.  REGISTER NOW:

 Jess Couture becomes Director of Admissions:  In a reorganization of administration that better describes her responsibilities, our own Jess Couture will be taking on a new title as Director of Admissions and Family Services at Seacoast Community School.  Overseeing all enrollment and matriculation management as well as our Financial Aid to families, Jess will continue the fine work she has done in many areas, and take on some new challenges too.  Congratulations Jess!

 The Imagination Library Launches!: Coordinated by Dolly Parton's Foundation, our new program to bring free reading books to all children at SCS ages Infant to 5 will be launching this week!  We are incredibly excited to participate in the distribution (through the mail) of new books every month to each age group.  That's 12 free children's books every year!  On Wednesday (afternoon) and Thursday (morning) of this week registration will begin at Community Campus and we want EVERYONE with children of this age to register and participate.  The books are entirely free and the program is designed to encourage age-appropriate experiences with each child.  Click here for more information:
