Our 2017-18 School Motto: ‘Go the Extra Mile'.

Welcome to Southern Cayuga Jr/Sr High School. We have two distinct schedules; one for grades 7/8 and 9-12. Our school day hours begin at 7:40 am and end at 2:25 pm for grades 7-12. Please see our school bell link on the left column of the page. By offering rigorous courses and strong academic initiatives such as: project-based learning activities, advisement mentoring, and technology-based instruction, we are preparing our students for college and career readiness in the future.

Principal's Message:                                                                                
 
Dear SC Jr/Sr High School Families,                                                                                      

Our school motto this year is  ‘Go the Extra Mile’ which is an outcrop of our school mission statement. The 1st Marking Period ended on 10/13 and report cards were mailed home on 10/23. Please see the letter below that will be included with all mailed report cards.
 
As we continue to improve teaching and learning for our students, we look to provide as much information as possible to our families regarding their child’s progress in class via the student report card. Student report cards in grades 7-12 are generated every 6 weeks and marking period dates can be located on page 6 of the student handbook or on the district calendar.
This year we created a skill-based report in each content area. The first page of the report card will look as it has in the past with grades, comment(s), GPA, etc… The second page will include a report on specific content area skills based on a 1-4 scale and N/A (if the skill is not applicable). All areas except for PE will report each marking period. This overall new report card was engineered with the help of your child’s teachers and I hope it will be a positive step in communicating skill expectations and a more in-depth view of your child’s overall achievement in their courses.  
By creating the skill sets in our content areas, students and families will better understand overall common expectations in math, science, social studies, ELA, etc… In addition, teachers in our content area are working to incorporate a common instructional language and vocabulary via the skill sets to best assist our student toward success and graduation. The report will serve as an additional reference beyond the standard report card to give you; our most valuable partners in student success, additional insight on course expectations and your child’s progress in the class.

Lastly, with the addition of the Schooltool parent/family portal we will not mail home report cards for the remainder of the year as this information is available via website and app under the grades tab. Access to Schooltool and the family guide to Schooltool can be found on the SCCS district homepage via www.southerncayuga.org. Should you wish to receive a mailed report card, please contact guidance office secretary, Mrs. Schmitt via 315-364-7111 x2114 or schmittp@southerncayuga.org


Please see school updates via our school’s Twitter account https://twitter.com/Southern_Cayuga. Please follow us to receive updates.

 As always, if there is anything I can answer or assist with, please do not hesitate to call or email me at 364.7111 x2103 or carnicellil@southerncayuga.org.
I look forward to working with you and your child this school year.
 
Sincerely,  
Luke A. Carnicelli, Principal                          
Southern Cayuga Jr/Sr High School
