We are proud to shine a spotlight on our partner, the San Carlos Education Foundation (SCEF), who rose to the challenge of fundraising in our community during the pandemic to ensure the children and staff of our schools had needs met in real-time. SCEF as an organization adapted to new fundraising techniques and our amazing community responded. Click on the title link to read more.

Brittan Acres BUGS Program

BA BUGS Program
Superintendent Jennifer Frentress stopped by the Brittan Acres school garden🪴to see what Mr. Liner’s class has been up to.
Part of the school’s STEAM program, Better Understanding of Garden Science (BUGS) helps students further their understanding of the interdependence between all of the earth’s living things as they grow into 2nd & 3rd grade BUGS students. They design and conduct experiments to test the effects of water, light, compost and fertilizer on crop production and study local flora and fauna, life cycles, and more! 💚 #scsdproud

Community Engagement

Superintendent Update - March 24

Arundel Talent Show
The past few weeks during my school visits, I enjoyed hearing from our students. Whether it is Central Middle School students telling me about their essays, Arundel Knights sharing animal projects or showing off special skills in the Talent Show, Brittan Acres students naming plants in the BUGS garden, or students enjoying a book fair at their school, I love seeing the direct impact of our teachers and staff. We began the school year with a Restorative Restart, focused on well-being and learning and as spring arrives, we see growth and joy in our students.

SMCOE COVID-19 Update Vaccination Update - Mar 17, 2022

SMCOE Logo
We are a few days into what may seem like new territory – the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) now strongly recommends that masks be worn in schools and no longer requires them. However, many schools have been cautious about lifting their own requirements for masks until at least after spring break. Even in schools where masks are only strongly recommended, many teachers and students continue to wear them indoors in schools.
