Come celebrate the Month of the Military Child with us! (April)
Anchored4Life a peer-to-peer program to connect military-dependent and civilian youth while building transition and resiliency skills. Peers enhance each others’ social skills, learn leadership skills, build character, improve self-esteem, and integrate into their community. Students are selected by their teachers to become leaders in the program. For more information, visit:https://anchored4life.com/
The Sigsbee Ambassador Program is intended to welcome new students and ease their anxiety about transitioning to a new school by providing a welcoming friend to help them become comfortable. On the new student's first day, a student ambassador from the classroom is assigned to the new student. The ambassador welcomes the student in the office and escorts him/her to class. During the student's first few days, the ambassador will answer questions for the student, sit with him/her at lunch and ensure the student has friends to play with at recess. Ambassadors are trained by our Military Family Life Counselors.
Month of the Military Child
April is the Month of the Military Child. Every Friday, we celebrate our military-connected students with exciting events for our whole student body.
You can expect glitter, bling, high fives and special visitors throughout the month. Our favorite event is Truck Day - including boats, subs, trucks, cars, dogs, horses and motorcycles.
Veteran's Day Parade
SCS participates in the Key West Veteran's Day parade to show our support for our military-connected families and local veterans. Parents are also welcome to help the PTO organize this event.
Purple Up 4 Military Kids
On Purple Up day, we recognize our military-connected students. Local military leaders acknowledge each military-connected child personally and present them with a certificate for their service. The whole school celebrates with bracelets and popcorn.
Our tenant commands commit to helping out at Sigsbee several times throughout the year. You may see them working the garden, moving furniture, painting, or playing at recess. We invite service members to read with students or talk about the service as guest lecturers.
