SCS School Song

Mr. Beal (SCS music teacher) and Victor Rustan (co-op student) have worked together this semester to record a new version of the SCS school song.  It is an old school song with a more modern arrangement.  Our goal is to have the students learn the song and sing it together at assemblies, pep rallies, fair, graduation etc... Eventually we would like to have students take turns recording their own singing/playing on the track as well. We hope all SCS students and staff from past, present and future enjoy this arrangement!  May it bring you joyful memories of your time at SCS for years to come!

Public Health Nurse at SCS

We know COVID-19 is the number one health topic on most people’s minds these days, but that doesn’t mean students aren’t dealing with other health concerns every day. If you’re looking for support or advice around birth control, STI testing, quitting smoking or vaping, managing stress, or any other health issue, our school’s public health nurse can help. Courtney, our school’s nurse, is currently meeting with students through confidential online video chat appointments starting Thursday Oct 22 from 10-12. All discussions or appointments with the nurse are always confidential. Eventually, Courtney will also be at our school once a month for any services that require a face-to-face interaction. We will keep you posted on when these appointments will begin. You can also reach out to Courtney via call or text at 519 426 0908.


Principal's Message:

Remember you rock!

SCS School Council will be meeting on December 9, 2020 at 5:30pm virtually. Please contact if you would like to attend.
