Notes from the Superintendent’s Desk

Another busy summer is nearing completion by staff to prepare the district for a productive school year.  Summer projects never go away as remodeling and improving the buildings/grounds, technology, and transportation departments take shape during the summer.  I hope you will take a few moments to thank staff members who have worked hard in preparation for the 2018-19 school year.

The 2018-19 school year officially begins on Monday, August 20, with in-service for staff.  Open house for the SCC elementary and the SCC MS is scheduled from 5:00-6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, August 22.  The first student day for school is Thursday, August 23. 

SCC has currently added the following new staff members:  Mandy Anderson, MS Counselor; Missy Carver, Guidance; Catrina Ellis, elementary teacher; Marcus Feldhans, MS teacher; John Kennedy, Elem./MS Art; Kelsey Knapp, MS teacher; Holly Hildreth, Elem./MS nurse; Martha Mericle, MS teacher; Amy Westcott, Elem. Special Education teacher, Rachel Karr, elem. associate, and Dawn Nath, cook.  Please help them to feel welcomed to the district.

Work continues on final drawings for the addition at the elementary and the remodeling at the high school.  The board has been working on financial considerations to make the best decision on financing options for the project for borrowing against the PPEL funds.  In the end, the district will have approximately $4,800,000 using PPEL funds for the projects.
