Daily Announcements–Thursday, August 19, 2021

Gryphons, listen to this.  A great and wise man once said “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare it for today.  That wise man was Malcolm X.  He spoke these words to inspire youth more than 50 years ago and they are still good today.  

Gryphons please know, trust, and believe that your ability to come to school each day and to be taught and to learn and to prepare for your future is a privilege that many do not have.  

Work each day to be your best and to appreciate SCS, the teachers and the resources available to you…..just because you deserve it.
