Scoop and Joy Dine Around on March 23 – 35% of proceeds go to our school!!
Over spring break, some friends introduced my family to Scoop and Joy Lounge. WOW! How had I not heard of this gem until now? Finally, the perfect ice cream shop. The kids agreed! They have delicious ice cream, adorable animal ice cream creations, and boba tea. Best of all, Scoop and Joy is supporting our school with a Dine Around on Friday, March 23. 35% of proceeds go back to SSKY. Please join us, you won’t regret it!

Last month, the PTO voted to put the school directory on-line! So, from now on the entire directory process will be paperless from data collection to making the directory available on both your computer and your smart phone.
We encourage you to SIGN UP today. We’re starting the process now so that you have access over the (long) summer.
Here’s how to sign up:
Families that were in this year’s directory. You should have received an email with a link and temporary password to access the system. Please use that email to login to the system.
New families to the school, folks who were not in this year’s directory, and everyone who lost their login email or never saw it. You can register at join.myschoolanywhere.com. Use Invitation Code: JoinSSKY Once we’ve had a chance to verify your family information, you’ll receive an email with login credentials and instructions to access the system.
