2022-2023 Lower/Middle School SCA Mentorship Program:

This year, our 4th and 5th grade students will be part of our SCA Mentorship Program, preparing them for the Middle School SCA experience.   

4th and 5th grade classes will attend the SCA assembly held in September.  One girl and one boy will then be elected as SCA homeroom representatives from each grade.  Those elected will attend the Middle School SCA monthly meetings and bring the excitement back to the classroom.  Middle School SCA members will serve as mentors to those upper elementary representatives.   

Homeroom Representatives:

4th:  Emerson Martin and Kinley Tucker

5th:  Virginia McWIlliams and Juby Towler
