SCHS Newsletter Sept 2, 2018
Dear BOBCAT Nation,
Each year we identify one or two Wildly Important Goals (WIGs) that we invest additional time, energy, and resources towards. Following is our 2018-19 WIG:
SCHS staff will model and explicitly guide each student towards mastery of the BEST C²ATS core values.
Join our efforts by learning our BEST C²ATS core values and use them with your student to positively reinforce behaviors that are helping them towards mastery of these skills and knowledge. CLICK HERE

Let’s support our students to be their BEST C²ATS!
