Introduction Letter

Wishing you and yours a Happy & Healthy Holiday Season.

Thank you to all that made donations to our Jonnycake Center. Dropping off $450 in gift cards for our families demonstrates a beautiful sentiment about our school community!

Both seventh and eighth grade students recently completed their Individual Learning Plans in Social Studies classes. Students reflected on their students learner qualities, set academic and personal/social goals, and explored some interesting career paths which they will be sharing at the student led conferences scheduled for February 9.

We are already talking about our eighth graders heading to the high school, and will be hosting an information session at CCMS on January 5th. The SKHS School Counseling department is teaming up with the CCMS school counselors to organize a student symposium. This event will take place during the school day and will allow CCMS 8th grade students to ask questions of current SKHS students in small groups. The goal here will be to create a safe environment for 8th graders to ask questions that are important to them, and to get answers from actual students, not adults. High school students will be prepared to share information on Academics, honors programs, extracurricular activities, as well as athletic program opportunities.

Also, please save the date of January 10th from 6:30-8:00 in the SKHS auditorium for Orientation Night. We are planning an interactive format this year that will allow parents and students to receive information about issues that are important to them. We will have a format to allow for question and answer as well as contributions from current SKHS students. Please be on the look-out for course selection forms, explore the website for SKHS program of studies and course descriptions.
