SCEF Technology Image
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 End-of-Year Message - June 8, 2022

Happy Hearts Image
Before we all start on our summer vacations, I wanted to take a minute to express my sincere gratitude to all of you for helping create a tremendous year for our children. This year we were faced with numerous challenges; constantly shifting health and safety protocols, staffing shortages, changing health conditions, and political unrest. But despite these challenges, we came together as a community to provide the whole child education we pride ourselves on in San Carlos, and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Mariposa Outdoor Ed
Last week our schools celebrated Earth Day all week long including our Mariposa 5th graders who enjoyed Outdoor Education at Jones Gulch. CMS students had a stand at the San Carlos Farmers Market to promote reduction of food waste and shopping locally, while the TL Environmental Club held their Earth week bake sale to raise funds to create signs to educate students about recycling.

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.
