What’s Happening at SCFS

21 years celebrating MLK Day

This year, SCFS took Martin Luther King Jr. Day “on” for the 21st year in a row. Our students and faculty spent the week leading up to January 15th learning about the life of Dr. King and the legacy of the Civil Rights movement and the ongoing work for justice in the present. Students created art pieces, poems, and projects as a class and displayed them around the school in preparation for our celebration. Families and friends were invited to view the exhibit throughout the day.
