Happy Thanksgiving from Seacoast Community School!

Happy Holiday to the SCS Community!:  Naturally, as a school dedicated to families there are lots of great things going on at SCS to celebrate one of our favorite holidays - Thanksgiving!  Classes are having activities such as churning butter, baking bread, and participating in a family turkey project, while the Campus ECE classes celebrated as a full group with an assembly of songs, fun, and a group quilt project.  A great time was had by all! 

New SCS Extended Half-Day Preschool opening on January 7th: As many of you know we are super-happy to announce that we will be opening a new Preschool for ages 3-5 called SCS at the Meadows at the beginning of the new year.  Answering the call for the highest quality Preschool services for all families of the Seacoast, we will enjoy renovated facilities, expert teachers, and special hours (7:30am-1:30pm).  It's open to all current and potential SCS families so if you know someone who may be interested in this service, please contact Admissions Director Jess Couture immediately to get a spot!  Jess can be reached at: 603-422-8223 x113.

Portsmouth Holiday Parade December 1st:  Each year we parade our school in front of thousands of people (and prospective families) in this annual event.  This year it will occur on December 1st at 5:30-7:30pm and we would love to have you join us and have your kids IN THE PARADE!  Our theme this year is "Hot Cocoa" and we are looking for folks who would like to dress as marshmallows to hand out packets.  (Yup, you read that right!)  Contact Sarah Fleck if you want to take part!

  SCS Strategic Planning Gathering a Success!:  After six months of planning and preparation the gathering to brainstorm the new direction for the school brought out over 45 people to do the "heavy lifting".  We gathered as a whole group and imagined what our school would look like, broke into smaller groups to work out the details, and then reviewed the Survey we sent out to the larger community over the past few weeks.  Now comes the culling of ideas into larger concepts that will be done by the Strategic Plan Committee and the Board in retreat in January.  Special thanks goes out to everyone who turned a good event plan into a great day!

Giving Tuesday is a GREAT day to Give!  How do we do so much as a school and still keep our tuition costs reasonable for families?  Why, the Annual Fund of course!  Because we never charge what it takes to fund the full experience for each child at SCS, we use our Annual Appeal to make up that difference.  Last year we set a record of raising $50,000 from our community and this year we will be shooting for $65,000.  PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY ON GIVING TUESDAY, Nov. 27th.  We need your help!
