We focus on improvements for our school such as landscaping, initiatives identified by school administration, staff and students for funding considerations and other items we feel are enhancements to our school. Recent items have included: a new play structure (2011).

As a fundraising initiative we raffle off coveted, reserved front row seats to the annual Christmas concert.

To help spread the word about all the great games families can play to help support and enhance their children's math and literacy skills, we help organize and stage activity and information evenings.
In order to keep the greater community abreast of school and SCC happenings, we submit a monthly update to the community newsletter.
to help support & promote literacy, we give a book to children ages 4 & 5
FYB (Feed your Brain)
we know that eating well helps our students be better learners. The SCC sponsors the FYB (Feed Your Brain) nutrition initiative. Students are strongly encouraged to bring a healthy snack of a fruit or a vegetable. Each morning at school they are given time to eat their healthy snack. In addition, the SCC provides ongoing nutrition information to parents & students to help remind them about the importance of "feeding your brain."
