South Shades Crest Elementary School

(10)

About the School South Shades Crest School opened in August, 1995 serving students in kindergarten through the fifth grade. A realignment plan, in 2018, provided South Shades Crest with the very unique opportunity to serve students from kindergarten through the second grade. We currently have approximately 360 students enrolled. South Shades Crest is committed to providing an academically challenging, quality education that includes multiple opportunities for students and staff to reach their fullest potential. Classes are self-contained with a student/staff ratio of approximately 19 to 1 in kindergarten and first grade with 20 to 1 in second. South Shades Crest Elementary School is an environment that is student centered. Our staff is dedicated to providing students opportunities that incorporates the curriculum and stretch beyond. Technology is integrated throughout the school day using Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. Special programs are available for children needing additional help as well as those needing academic enrichment. These programs include learning support, speech, art, music, physical education, and STEAM. Annual school wide events include a Fairy Tale Festival, Red Ribbon Week, Fifties Day, Polar Express Day, Book Fairs, Author Visits, Field Day, and STEAM Day.

SSC families,

We wanted to take a moment to highlight our sponsors. They supported us throughout the year, and now is our time to support them. As you know, many businesses have been classified as “non essential” and are unable to be open at this time. But many of our sponsors are still open for curbside/take out service. If you are able and willing, let’s show our support for them and our community.

Next Tuesday, April 7th was scheduled to be a spirit night at The Whole Scoop. Instead of a fundraiser for our school, we are asking that you still visit them for curbside service (They will bring your order to your car!) and thank them for supporting SSC during the school year. The businesses that have been so good to us are pictured.

Thank you, and we hope everyone is staying healthy at home. #flattenthecurve #stayhome
