Fourth Grade to Participate in the Valdosta Community Christmas Parade 

SCA will have its first-ever float in the Valdosta Community Christmas Parade which will be held on Saturday, December 1st at 6:00 pm. Fourth-grade scholars will perform the songs they have been busy preparing for the Christmas program to be held at our Celebration of Learning on December 11th.  

The parade will begin at Woodrow Wilson Drive, proceed down North Patterson Street, and end at the Department of Health Building.

We would love to see SCA families along the parade route cheering on our fourth-grade scholars and representing our school!  

SAVE THE DATE - Celebration of Learning & Holiday Music Program
Please mark your calendars for our Winter Celebration of Learning and Holiday Music Program on Tuesday, December 11th!
Holiday Family Engagement Project
As we wrap up 2018, we are grateful for our wonderful SCA scholars and families.  Your scholar should have received a blank Christmas ornament in their Monday folders yesterday. 

Please take a moment with your scholar to talk about his/her best memories of 2018 then have your child write or draw their special memories on the ornament, and return to school by Friday, November 30th. 

The ornaments will be displayed on a tree that will be located in our dining room! 
Good News Club - No Meetings in December
The Good News Club will not hold any Monday meetings during the month of December.  Please make arrangement to pick up your scholar at the normal dismissal time on Monday, December 3rd & 10th. Meetings will resume in January. 
CDL Licensed Drivers Needed
SCA is looking for licensed and qualified school bus drivers to transport our scholars to field trips throughout the year.  

We will hold an interest meeting for anyone who is qualified and interested on Wednesday, December 5th at 9:00 am in the media center.  Please share this information with anyone who may qualify and would be interested.  
There will be no Ignite After School Program on Tuesday, December 11th due to the Celebration of Learning and Friday, December 14th due to our mandatory early dismissal at 1:00 pm.  Please make a note of these dates and make arrangements to pick your scholars up on time. 
Georgia Parent Survey-Please Complete
Please take a few moments to complete the Georgia Parent Survey: 

The survey contains 24 questions and may be completed using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact the school and we can make accommodations for you to complete the survey on campus. We encourage all parents/families to participate in the survey as it collects important data that helps SCA continue to evaluate and improve our school climate and scholar achievement. 

CLICK HERE to begin the survey. In the school system drop down choose State Charter Schools [782] then choose Scintilla Charter Academy. 
Change of Clothes
Parents, please send a weather-appropriate change of clothes to school with you your scholar each day including undergarments and socks.  The change of clothes does not have to be an SCA uniform.  Should your scholar have a spill or accident, they will have something to change into.  You can place the clothing in a large Ziploc bag, marked with their name, and place it in their backpacks until needed.  We appreciate your help.
