Summer PEAK's Final Days: After a wonderful summer of fun in the sun, our PEAK Program finished up last week by letting the air our of the blow-up swim floats and folding up the beach chairs. Looking back, it was a great season as the new KPEAK was a success, and the new fieldtrip schedule worked out just fine for everyone. Thanks to all the kids and families who attended, and special thanks to all the great staff!
Save the Date! The SCS Family Back to School Pot Luck Picnic Gathering will be on September 12th 5:00pm-7:00pm. Be sure to mark your calendars for this wonderful event sponsored by the Parent Committee and featuring food from many of our families. The event is open to ALL and will happen at Community Campus, 100 Campus Drive in Portsmouth. More information will be on the way, and remember ALL siblings are welcome!
Imagination Library Starts in September: Every SCS student under the age of 5 has been offered the opportunity to join our new reading initiative and over 110 are signed up! Dolly Parton's Imagination Library will be sending free reading books monthly to all these families starting with the introductory book "The Little Engine That Could" in September. 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 Annual Memorial Bridge 5K Road Race: October 7th! Sponsoring this great event in cooperation with Prescott Park Arts Festival has become a yearly happening that many folks look forward to. Running through the streets of Portsmouth on a brisk fall Sunday morning is just heaven to many locals - so why not join them? You can also join our hearty group of Race Volunteers by contacting Sarah Fleck at SFleck@Seacoastcommunityschool.org. Our sponsors this year include: Kennebunk Savings, Cambridge Trust Bank, Tidal Media Group, Beswick Engineering, Salem Five, and many more!

Strategic Planning Starts This Fall! The SCS Board of Directors will be launching a new Strategic Planning Project this fall and we hope to produce a new Strategic Plan by the Spring. This type of work helps the school look far out into the future and imagine what SCS looks like, and then determines how to get there! Look forward to more information on how you can participate in the coming weeks!
