Dear Parents and Friends:
You are reading the last newsletter of this school year. We're always surprised to find the end of the school year so near. I suppose one reason times flies is because we are doing so much.
This year, we decided not to do a regular school newspaper and instead opted to go with a Facebook Group page. Students created SCS-Daily to report on school events since late September. It is amazing to scroll through the year on this Facebook page to see the wide variety of activities the different classes did this year. (You can view SCS-Daily on Facebook without a Facebook account simply by typing in your web browser: facebook.com/scs-daily.)
And we're not finished! Upcoming events include a play, field trips, a visit of student pen pals from Madison, a talent show, step up day, and field day -- all in the next 2 weeks.
One thing on the horizon for next year is 1:1 computing in Upper Multiage and Grade 6. A proposal will be shared at Tuesday evening's School Board meeting to provide a Chromebook computer to each District student in grades 4 - 8 beginning in September, and expanding to include students at the high school in 2014-15. One to one computing means every student has his/her own computer for the purposes of daily learning.
