What’s Happening at SCFS

Holiday Sing

Holiday Singing and Community Service

During our last day of school before winter break, students gathered for a special Meeting for Worship, collected donations for Out of the Cold: Centre County, and sang seasonal favorites with SCFS families.

Halloween Fun

At SCFS, we enjoyed our 2/3/4 Spooky Science Museum, all-school Halloween parade, a door decorating contest, dancing the Monster Mash, and celebrating Día de los Muertos with a special ofrenda.
Get Outside Challenge

Get Outside Challenge Success

Participants and community partners made this year’s Get Outside Challenge a huge success! Thank you to everyone who logged miles, organized community hikes, and made a gift to the Annual Fund.
