Hello Seniors!
Class of 2020
CLASS of 2020 MONDAY NIGHT MEETING

We are so excited to welcome our Class of 2020! We will have a Senior Class meeting on Monday, August 12 at 6:30 p.m. in order to do the following:
· Enjoy firehouse subs together.
· Take a casual senior pic.
· Participate in a Mac training with Mr. Madere and our Apple Rep.

Attention seniors who did NOT take a picture with Romaguera Photography at SCC during the summer: In order to have a cap and gown picture in the 2019-2020 yearbook, you should make an appointment to take a cap and gown picture with the studio by Saturday, November 30, 2019. NO photos will be accepted after this date!

The School Year Gear Up!

Every day at SCC is great; but this year, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays are extra-special! See below for details about more of this year's changes.

Comet Lunch Crunch

Comet Lunch Crunch meetings will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays!

Students will meet in groups with their faculty advisor/homeroom teacher to discuss a variety of topics provided by the administration, counselors, and department heads. Students will identify personal goals as well as complete assigned lessons. Students will also be allowed time for reading of emails, studying, and completing assignments for ACT Academy and ACT Tessera.

SCC teachers will establish a serious atmosphere for students to learn the appropriate organizational skills, study skills, and goal-setting skills needed to be successful in high school and beyond.

Late Start Thursdays

Every Thursday for the 19-20 school year:
Classes will begin at 9:00 AM.
Students may be dropped off beginning at 7:30AM and report to a monitored study hall in the Commons until the 9:00AM bell.
Students enrolled in dual enrollment courses may be assigned test dates at least once per quarter on a Thursday at 7:30AM.
Students may also be required to participate in certain events on Thursdays at 7:30 AM such as lettermen jacket ordering, graduation presentations, etc.
