Dear SCCS Family,

In light of the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, we request that you partner with us in prayer during this time of sadness and mourning. As we reflect on the details over these last few days, our hearts are revived with thankfulness for our own children, as well as those we have the privilege to minister to. We are also thankful for the ever-present refuge of hope and security we find in our Savior, Jesus Christ, and look forward to seeing how He will work in and through this event to draw people to Himself.

In addition, your partnership of prayer and support is of inestimable value during these difficult days. Please know that we are thankful for your encouragement, feedback, and daily communication on how to become an even better school.

Sincerely,
Mr. Huckabone, SCCS Administrator
Mr. Wilson, SCCS Principal

Christmas at SCCS
by John Dennis, SCCS School Committee/SCBC Board Chairman     

 

This is a great time of year at SCCS as we anticipate the coming of Christmas. Our younger students are preparing special gifts or cards for their parents, the older students are preparing for Christmas concerts, and our teachers and staff have put up the Christmas decorations in their classrooms. The air is festive and, with occasional photography, we get frequent insights and updates on many of these activities.  

Dennis One of my favorite stories of the Christmas season is when the SCCS kindergarteners have visited the Sepulveda Veteran's Hospital in North Hills. These senior citizens who have served our country enjoy a season of time with our students and parents and have the opportunity to sing, talk, laugh, and hug. Our children do so well talking and engaging people that are as much as seven decades older than them! The hospital staff are always highly complementary of our children for their good behavior and the SCCS parents who assist always come back with their hearts warmed. Click here to read more.
Winter Sports at SCCS

2012 Pee-Wee Basketball Team 
by Bob Dickson  

  

Winter in Southern California isn't like winter anywhere else. This is the home of tee-shirt Christmas mornings and New Year's Day barbecues. You won't find snow-covered roof lines in Santa Clarita and the smoke coming from the occasional chimney rises more out of a desire for nostalgia than a need to be warm.

 

However, there are some wintertime sights and sounds that are universal - the echo of a basketball hitting the gymnasium floor. The tweeting of a referee's whistle followed by the hush before a free throw. There is the bouquet of bright colors as opposing teams file onto the pitch. Goalkeepers crouched between the goal posts, blowing on their fingers to keep warm. A checkered ball spinning across bright green blades of grass.

 

These are the sight and sounds of winter in the family that is SCCS sports - these and more. Click here to read more.

Santa Clarita Christian School Robotics Team, SCCAR
by Mr. Steinbock


SCAAR Did you know......Ten SCCS students in grades 6th-8th participate in the SCCAR (Santa Clarita Christian Awesome Robotics) team competition?

 

This is the third year for the SCCAR (Santa Clarita Christian Awesome Robotics) team to be in existence at SCCS. SCCAR is sponsored by Lego.

 

FLL (First Lego League) is a national program that allows teams of 2-10 members to compete against other teams from schools or other clubs. The goal is for each team to design, build and program their own robot to accomplish various missions on the Mission Board. Teams compete against other teams not only in timed robot competitions, but also in a project assigned each year. SCCAR has done well at competitions from the very beginning. Each year SCCAR has been successful in scoring in the top teams. SCCAR has received first place trophies for Project Presentation, Mechanical Design and overall Robot Performance.

Character Trait for the Month of January: Dependability
 
November Trait
Congratulations to the November
Student of the Month Recipients!  
Our character trait for January is dependability. A dependable person is a reliable person; he has integrity and is trustworthy. In the Bible a person with these characteristics is most often referred to as faithful. Of course, God is ultimately the only One who is always faithful, but those who strive to please God and accurately represent Him on earth will also earn themselves a reputation for being dependable. As the apostle Paul reminds the church at Corinth, "It is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy." (1 Corinthians 4:2)
