We’ve been working on some updates this summer. A new high school classroom is being added. The front entrance is in the process of being updated with extra security measures. The Early Education hallways are receiving a fresh coat of paint, and the playground sand has been replaced with mulch. The Lower School hallways are being decorated with murals, and the bathrooms near the Sabre Center are getting a facelift. Thank you to all who donated to The Fund for SCS to take our school from excellent to extraordinary!
