Volunteer Opportunities

Welcome Parents!

Recognizing the parent as the primary teacher, SCL fosters a strong home-school relationship. Parents have access to the principal and teachers in person, by phone, and via email. There are numerous ways for parents to get involved in the school and in their child’s education.
