Student Focus – Principal’s Message

With finals wrapping up today and Regents Exams ending within the next couple of weeks, we want to encourage our students to continue putting forth their best effort. Additionally, I want to encourage all of our students to continue healthy habits into the summer. Please encourage our students to get a library membership, read daily (at least 20 continuous minutes), practice math facts, explore scientific concepts, research historical topics of interest (especially local topics – Sharon Springs is rich with history and culture), engage in the arts, and exercise each day. Setting goals aligned with routines and expectations involving these activities will help support continued growth for your child and better mental, physical and emotional health. Finally, set strict limits on use of electronics and monitor the online activity of our students. Your partnership in creating the habits and routines for expanding opportunities in and out of school provide a foundation for increased engagement and success across all areas of life.

Thank you for entrusting your child(ren)’s education to our faculty and staff at SSCS. We hope you and yours have a wonderful, happy and healthy summer!

Note: This will be the final bulletin this school year
