Dear SCHS Families,


Good afternoon!


Happy Easter!  Classes resume tomorrow and we will have two A days in a row.  Our teachers have been back since Tuesday.  We have had two professional development days one on mental health and the other blended learning.  Both days were very beneficial.


Friday marks the midpoint of the 4th quarter.  Progress reports will be available by the end of the school day. Students should check grades and begin preparing for the final weeks of school.  It is very important for students to get homework in on time and adhere to each teacher’s late work policy.  It is the student's responsibility to make up quizzes and tests if they are absent for any reason.  


The SCHS Home & School will be taking orders for final exam Treat Bags!  Orders will be due on May 12th and treat bags will be distributed on May 19th.  Please make checks payable the SCHS Home & School!  Order form is attached to this e-mail.  


Elizabeth Doing (4th grade SEAS) and Debbie Randell (Theology SCHS) are organizing an amazing trip to Panama for World Youth Day in 2019. The trip is offered to any student in the system who will be at least 16 by January 2019 and their families. Please refer to the attached flyer. There is a meeting scheduled for all interested families on Monday April 24th at 6:30pm at SCHS in  Room 204.


The Junior/Senior Prom is scheduled for Friday, May 5th at the Old Towne Event Center in Republic. Thank you to Carol Ann Haake for her generous donation of her event center.  Tickets are now on sale for Juniors ($25 per person) and Seniors ($15 per person). The price includes dinner. SCHS students who will be bringing a guest to  need to complete a guest form and all students must complete a permission form by May 3rd.  Guests may be only one year removed from high school graduation.


Friday, April 21, students may dress out of uniform for $3.00.  Again, students should dress for school and not wear shorts that are more than 3 inches above their knees.  Proceeds from this buyout will go to the Community Partnership of the Ozarks.   


The Alumni Association is hosting a 5K run on Saturday, April 29th.  Please see the attached registration form for more information.  


There are 5 spots still available for the Steubenville Youth Conference in July. If your student would like to attend, please contact Monica Pickens at 417-942-8048 by 4/20/17.


Parents, please check your student’s lunch balances.  It is important that lunch accounts are paid in full before final exams.  Thanks for your support with this matter.
