Dear Santa Cruz Gardens families:

We've reached the end of a wonderful year of hard work performed and high expectations met. Happy Summer!

Here are three things to take note of before the 2014-15 school year begins:

We start our new Wednesday minimum day schedule in the Fall. Fridays will follow the regular bell schedule. Please check the "Schedules/Calendar".

Morning start time has changed for Grades 1 through 5 - the warning bell will go at 8:12am. and class will start at 8:15am. This change has been effected in order to maximize our academic instruction time before and after recess and lunch. Please check the "Schedules/Calendar" for a look at the new bell schedule.

The first day of school will be Wed, August 27 - note that this will be a minimum day.

We look forward to welcoming you and your student back to SCG in the Fall. Have a wonderful, safe, restful Summer—and please help your student keep up with his/her 20-30 minutes of silent reading per day: Let's start the 2014-15 school year ready for another year of academic excellence.
