Back to School Letter from Michael D. Owens, Principal

June 27, 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian(s),

The summer is blazing by! I hope your student(s) are finding time to enjoy summer fun with friends and family.  As school draws near, I wanted to make sure your family is aware of what’s happening during the month of August.  School officially begins on Monday, August 19th.

Student schedules can be accessed on Power School as of July 1st.  New Family Orientation will occur Tuesday, August 13th, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. in the Corbett Theater.  This is mandatory for all NEW SCPA students in grades K-12.  We look forward to ensuring our new families are welcomed into our learning community on this special day just for you.

We have revamped our traditional orientation nights for returning students and parents. Returning families may take part in our “Open Hours,” August 14th and August 15th. Students in Grades 1-6 are invited to “Open Hours” August 14th.  Students in Grades 7-12 are invited to “Open Hours” August 15th.  The purpose of “Open Hours” is to allow for informalengagement.  During the hour time slots dedicated to grade bands, student and parents will have an opportunity to briefly meet staff, drop off school supplies, sign up for before and after care (YMCA K-6), walk their schedule, pay school fees, turn in summer assignments, pick up change of major request form and major musical audition packets.  We will have the computer lab available for your convenience.

Looking forward to a seeing you soon,

Sincerely,
