SCS Day of Giving is this Thursday 5/27!
Everything is ready for our ONE BIG DAY of giving to Seacoast Community School in 2021 and you can be a part of it! Each year our Annual Fund drive is used to support important parts of the SCS experience for every child and this year is no different. What is different is that we are working with a website called "GiveCampus" and offering a single huge day to help make our goal! On Thursday we will strive to get 100 donors in one day and target these gifts specifically for scholarships (which are always funded by the Annual Fund). YOU CAN DO YOUR PART by clicking the link below to access the special donation portal. The video on the giving page is SO GOOD you just have to see it!
PLEASE HELP us reach our goal of 100 donors! There are special "challenge gifts" offered by donors if we reach the 25, 50, 75, and 100 milestones so we need everyone to help with any level of gift. SCS is a 501c3 nonprofit so every gift is tax deductible if you choose to claim it on your taxes.
In the category of "all good things must come to an end", after twenty years of teaching, guiding, and overseeing children in our regular and summer PEAK Programs, Jamie Schaaf has decided to take a break and seek out new adventures elsewhere. Jamie has been a mainstay of PEAK for such a long time that most folks can't imagine the program without him. His creativity, kindness, vision, and care will be sorely missed. He will be taking time off this summer, doing some adventuring, before setting new sites in the fall. If you would like to congratulate or thank Jamie, he can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
SCS Reaches $15min Wage!The Board's Strategic Plan formed with the help of the entire SCS Community three years ago called for examining the possibility of raising all teachers wages to reflect a target $15min wage. Well, with a lot of help from the Finance Committee, the Business Office, and some timely grants/loans that goal has been reached two years ahead of schedule! The pandemic has revealed that child care and after school care are critical to our entire economy and paying good wages to people who love to work with children is the key to making that happen. With the entire wage scale shifted upward, now SCS teachers at every level can enjoy full benefits, free support for degree work, a great school atmosphere, and a healthy living wage. Do you know someone who would benefit from our wonderful school and like to pursue a career in Early Childhood education? Please contact Program Director
