SHORECREST COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION: A great way to support and make a difference at your child's school!
The Importance of Volunteering
SCA sponsors opportunities for all Shorecrest community members to lead and participate in events, activities, and services that support and enhance the educational, social, and fund-raising needs of the Shorecrest community. All Shorecrest families are automatically a part of SCA, and there are no registrations and no dues.
Please Join Us!
One of Shorecrest’s great assets is its community. A goal of SCA (formerly known as SPA) is to support and develop that sense of school community. There are many different personalities out there with many different talents, and just as many ways to become involved in our community. Whether it’s an hour a month, or an hour a week - there is a place for YOU. Get involved in the way that is best for your family and your schedule. Please join us for a SCA Meeting to see how you can get involved.
We look forward to seeing you!
It’s hard to imagine a more powerful team than school and parents working together to enrich student experiences. That’s why serving as a parent volunteer is so vital for your children. Get to know the school, the community, other volunteers - in ways that interest you!
SCA knows you're busy... We'll get your back-to-school supply shopping done for you (binders, folders, dry erase markers, index cards, etc...) Purchase online before summer to clear it off your list and get the best prices! Prices will go up as the summer progresses, and sales close August 2. School supplies purchased through SCA will be ready and waiting in your child's classroom right before school starts next year, saving you time and money. Click through to buy online.
This summer a SCA volunteer calendar will be sent home to all families listing event dates and opportunities. Please contact Samantha Nevins at firstname.lastname@example.org for help in finding the right volunteer position for your interests, talents and schedule.
The Shorecrest Community Association hosted an appreciation breakfast to thank all school volunteers for what they did to make the 2018-2019 school year so special. Grandparent Council Chair Donna Gaffney introduced the day’s guest speaker, International and New York Times Bestselling author and Shorecrest parent Ashley Rhodes-Courter and her topic "The importance of volunteerism and giving back." The incoming SCA Board for the 2019-2020 school year was voted on and announced.The volunteer breakfast is also when the annual recipient of the Janet Root Volunteer Service Award is announced each year. Last year’s winner, Corrie Stover ‘90, was there to present the 2018-19 award. Congratulations Anne Dowling and Heather O’Neill as this year’s Janet Root Volunteers of the Year!
The Big Event Chairs, as well as the SCA Board, would like to thank the following people for their assistance in making Charger Winnings so successful: all Shorecrest teachers / staff who donated their time and items, Sam Soth, Charlene Hosseini, BA Beatty, Annette Eichenbaum and Eve Cline. A special thanks to Catherine Nelke and Heather Delrahim for their time on the class books project.
It's time for some spring cleaning! Help SCA give loved and gently-used children’s books new homes. SCA will start collecting used books on Monday for the annual Oldie Goldie book sale. Collection boxes will be in the hallways of Lower School and in the Middle School breezeway. Used books will be sold to ES and LS students for rock-bottom prices so they can find new literary favorites on the cheap. Proceeds benefit the Shorecrest library.
If you have an interest in serving on the SCA Board for the 2019-20 academic year, or know someone who would be a great fit, nominations and self-nominations are underway! Contact Stacy Conroy at email@example.com or 813-944-7951.
