This year's common Summer Read for English 8 - English IV is called The Boy, The Mole, The Fox, and The Horse, written by Charlie Mackesy. The book is a recent sensation full of deep truths communicated by the conversations and reflections of the four characters. This book was selected for the SCC students and community in the hopes that this simple story will inspire complex and engaging conversations in our classroom and beyond. We encourage students to read the book closely and meditate on the ideas in the book that spark thoughts and emotions. We also invite parents to read the story and talk it over with the students. For a glimpse at the book and it's author, click here.

Math Summer Assignments
If for some reason you get logged out of your IXL during the summer and have forgotten your login information, please email Mrs. Beckmann at beckmann.joneva@stcharlescatholic.org and she will be glad to send you that information.
Please be aware that Mrs. Beckmann will be checking her email during the summer, but she may not check it everyday. We pray for you as you continue to practice your math skills this summer to prepare for next year's math classes.


BACK TO SCHOOL PLAN for 2020-2021
The SCC Administration has been meeting on campus and planning each day for our healthy return to campus. We're so excited to see you all again! SCC is ready to continue our mission of complete education no matter what the school year may bring. It's a privilege to serve the Comet Family.

St. Charles Catholic High School (SCC) educates the whole person – mind, body, and soul. Therefore, our plan was created with a holistic approach to education in order to ensure that the physical, emotional, and psychological needs of our students are given the same attention as those of the cognitive and spiritual needs. Our commitment to offering excellent educational opportunities in a supported community and rooted in a Catholic worldview is even stronger today as we approach the upcoming school year and the challenges we face during the Covid-19 Pandemic. SCC has enlisted the support of Ochsner Health and of the Office of Catholic Schools as we plan for the 2020-2021 school year. SCC remains committed to the health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. We will continue to take the steps needed to keep our school community safe through proactive and precautionary measures while providing an excellent Catholic high school education. Following the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office of Catholic Schools, the Louisiana Department of Health, the Louisiana Department of Education, and the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA), SCC will publish our complete plan for the 2020-2021 school year once it is approved by the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

Highlights of our Procedure Plan:
Face Masks:
Everyone (students and staff) will wear facemasks upon arrival to school, during transition times, in the hallways, and in public spaces outside of classrooms. In certain cases (where a fellow student or teacher may be immunocompromised), students may be required to wear facemasks during class. Any person on campus may use a mask at any time anywhere whether required in that location or not. Acceptable masks are those with our school logo, solid school colors (including blue, gold, black and/or white), or the surgical/disposable masks.

Our entryway is now a lovely sanitation station where visitors can freshen their hands with sanitizer, grab a tissue, and take their temperature with our new temperature monitor (pictured on the left and below) which allows for a quick and easy temperature reading before entering the main building. After testing several options for temperature takers and speaking with multiple health officials, we feel confident that this is best option for our school.
Temperature Checks:
Temperatures will be checked upon arrival. Students, faculty, and staff with a temperature at or above 100.4 will not be permitted to attend school until fever-free without medication for at least 72 hours or present a provider note to return to school. For students who are not permitted to attend classes, video lessons and course assignments will be delivered via Google Classroom. All visitors to campus must have a temperature check as they enter a building.

Congratulations to our 2019-2020 4th Quarter Honor Roll

SCC Football Camp

We are so proud to have offered our youth football camp this week for the young men of our region. SCC's football camp is an annual summer camp that helps boys grow in strength, ability, and community.

This summer, the boys were led through speed drills, mock plays, and other skills training. Thank you to everyone who helped the team to put on this awesome event, and thank you to all the families that participated. It's awesome to see so many future Comets on Comet Field!

Archdiocese Outstanding Catholic Youth Awards

We're proud to share with the Comet family that two Comets were recently recognized at the Archdiocese of New Orleans Catholic Youth Award Ceremony. St. Joan of Arc Church Parish nominated Brayden Turner, a 2020 graduate of SCC, and St. Charles Borromeo Church Parish nominated Carter Ory, an incoming 8th grader.

Congratulations to the Turner and Ory families! We're so proud to call these young men Comets!

Congratulations to Taelen Jacomine and Morgan Figuero, two of our 2020 SCC graduates who recently made the Southeastern Louisiana University cheer team!

In closing, please join SCC in praying our Family Prayer

Loving and faithful God, through the years the people of our archdiocese have appreciated the prayers and love of Our Lady of Prompt Succor in times of war, disaster, epidemic and illness. We come to you, Father, with Mary our Mother, and ask you to help us in the battle of today against violence, murder and racism.

We implore you to give us your wisdom that we may build a community founded on the values of Jesus, which gives respect to the life and dignity of all people.

Bless parents that they may form their children in faith. Bless and protect our youth that they may be peacemakers of our time. Give consolation to those who have lost loved ones through violence.

Hear our prayer and give us the perseverance to be a voice for life and human dignity in our community.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us. Mother Henriette Delille, pray for us that we may be a holy family.
