Holidaze Are Here!

Holiday Parade a Wild Time! The "Hot Cocoa Float" was a huge success in the Portsmouth Parade as we waved to cheering thousands of delirious alumni, parents, and fans throughout the route.  Kicking off the holiday season was never so much fun!  Faculty and kids dressed as human "marshmallows" handed out over 1000 packets of hot cocoa with our school logo on them.  Oh, what a night for Portsmouth and for SCS too!

The Meadows Preschool Opening Soon! The new SCS at the Meadows school is under construction and on schedule to open for 3-5 yr olds soon.  It will offer the same GREAT service as all our full-day programs in a special "extended half-day" format.  Open to all current and potential SCS families, the Meadows will be a super experience for families who join us there.  If you know someone who may be interested in signing up, please contact Admissions Director Jess Couture immediately to get a spot!  Jess can be reached at: 603-422-8223 x113.

Portsmouth Elks Supports Imagination Library: Wow, our new program to help all children at SCS ages 0-5 read more with adults is really taking off!  The Imagination Library program is now open for sponsorship and the Portsmouth Elks have stepped up in a big way!  Their generous gift will help make it possible for all 115 eligible kids in our school to receive new books in the mail every month.  Thank you Elks!!
