From the Principal’s Desk

July 7,2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Deborah A Jackson, Founder
Carol A. Parron, Principal

Welcome back to another Sonshine Christian Academy School year! It is our sincere prayer that your summer was relaxing, enjoyable and you have had the opportunity to spend quality time with your families. As the upcoming school year quickly approaches, it is with great pride and honor to have accepted the position of principal for the 2017/2018 school year.

On behalf of the entire staff, we welcome both the returning and new students. Our focus for this year are the 4 A’s to Success. They are: Attendance, Attitude, Academics and Activities. We want every child to reach their full potential of academic excellence, by stepping into success with God’s lighted pathway. It is our goal to create an enriched learning environment that engages each student.  Of course, we need and welcome your support and cooperation. You play a key role in the academic success of our students; therefore school/parent communication is crucial.

SCA has an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge. The staff is dedicated to building a safe, compassionate community of lifelong learners who are scholars, creators, critical thinkers and problem solvers. We believe high expectations yield academic transformation for all students. We continue to be committed to doing our part in ensuring your child achieves academic excellence.

I strongly believe that every child can learn and achieve the highest level of success with the proper preparation and support. To ensure a successful school year, it is imperative to apply the following:

  • Instruction begins promptly at 7:30; please make getting your child to school on time a priority.
  • Expect homework Monday through Friday; and special projects.
  • Allow time for reading and practicing basic math facts.
  • Return all request forms and documents to school in a timely manner.

Orientation This is the time allocated to review the Academy’s Parent Handbook, as well as discuss academic expectations, parent involvement and financial responsibilities, and meeting you child’s teacher. Your attendance is necessary and strongly encouraged. However, if you are unable to attend due to scheduling conflict, please consider sending a representative on your behalf to ensure that you are well informed and prepared prior to the first day of school, SCA Calendar Enclosed.
