A safe place for children to grow, learn, and play. Our students learn to work in teams, with the teacher and with each other. Our curriculum includes music, art, physical education, and technology lessons  as well as core subjects. Our students use a variety of tools – from computers to costumes – to make learning fun as well as educational. Our families and friends come from around the world. Our SCA’s annual food drive is just one service-learning project that helps make our students good citizens. All of our staff members are true heroes, every day.

  • Sixth Grade End-of-Year Celebration Events

    The PTA’s Sixth Grade Activities Committee has been working hard all year to plan a series of exciting events to cap off the students’ elementary-school years. The highlight will be the evening Promotion Ceremony, which will be held at South County Middle School at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21. The event was moved to that location to accommodate more family members who wish to attend. A small reception with refreshments will follow the ceremony.
    Plans for this and other events are still being finalized, and more information will be sent home to sixth grade parents soon. Here is a list of additional school-day events to add to your calendar:

    • Friday, June 17 – 6th Grade Carnival, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. – featuring lunch, games, and other team activities (comfortable attire and running shoes required)
    • Monday, June 20 – 6th Grade Tournament/Field Day (P.E. Department) – 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. – traditional Field Day games (comfortable attire and running shoes required)
    • Wednesday, June 22 – 6th Grade Dance – 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. (alternative activities will be offered for those students who don’t wish to attend the dance)
    • Thursday, June 23 – Last Day of School – Sixth graders will process out of the building at 2:05 p.m.

    More information about all of these activities, including a volunteer sign-up form, is in this week's Wednesday Folder. You can also sign up to help online! Just visit to let them know how you’d like to help.
