April 5, 2017
Happy Spring Everyone!
They say April showers bring May flowers. At this rate, we should be seeing lots of flowers in May!!!
A great big thank you to Melissa Bischoff at PSS for hosting our very well attended and informative meeting this week. It was great to hear updates of all the wonderful events PSS is sponsoring and it's always a treat to visit the beautiful Sister to Sister Prom Shop.
Patty Tomaszewski also shared such valuable and needed information with us on the topics of Gender Identity and Transgender Issues, and we are grateful for her knowledge of the subject. Please make sure to visit our website at sussexcountysca.org for Patty's handouts and other helpful information. Thanks, as always to Chantel Seger, our fabulous webmaster for her awesome job on the website!
As part of our business meeting, we did discuss our upcoming programs to include the High School Caring Award ceremony on May 24, 2017 at SCCC. More information will be sent soon from Kim Knabb, HS Program Coordinator. We are also excited about our end of the year Recognition/Retirement Luncheon to be held at The Farmstead on Friday, June 2nd, from 11:30 a.m - 3:00 pm. Stay tuned for detailed information, to be sent soon. Please notify us of any retirements so we can properly honor our retirees for their service.
Our scholarship applications (Donna Picciuto - chairperson) were sent to all schools. Please contact Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Finally, May 1st is National Decision Day - so this provides us with a great opportunity to have students wear their chosen schools (elementary and middle schools can wear apparel from mom, dad, or siblings' schools) and teachers wear their Alma Maters with jeans and contribute a monetary donation to our association! "College Apparel Day" can be held any day that week. This is a great fundraiser to raise money for scholarships - everything goes right back to our Sussex County students!!
Thanks again to everyone for your continued support of SCSCA! As mentioned please continue to check our website for any updates and valuable information. Have a very safe and enjoyable spring break with your family and friends.
Joanne and Kim
