Thank you to the many parents and families who joined us for the Parent Resource Fair. We had a record turnout and exciting start to the new school year. 

A Note to French Students and their families

Our French teacher decided at the last minute to accept a job in another part of the state. We are taking this as an opportunity to see how VHS (Virtual High School) could provide foreign language instruction to our students. We are working on the details and a letter will go home by Tuesday at the latest. Thank you for your patience as we resolve this.  We working to make this an even better solution for our students, branching into Spanish for the first time this year. If you questions or concerns please email Ms. Cavallo at

Wellness at SACS

Hi SACS community,  

My name is Mitch Craib (Mr. C.) and I am the new Wellness Coordinator at the school.  I will be presenting little pieces of wellness information in many of the daily announcements this year.  Here are a few guidelines about endurance exercise to start with.

People often wonder how much exercise is needed for health and fitness.  The American College of Sports Medicine's recommendations for continuous aerobic exercise, such as walking, running, cycling, cross-country skiing, rowing, elliptical training, Zumba, etc. are as follows:

Cardio-respiratory (heart and breathing) Exercise
  • people should get at least 150 minutes of this kind of exercise (such as brisk walking) per week.
  • 30-60 minutes sessions of exercise (five days per week) are best
  • Or, 20-60 minutes of vigorous exercise, like running (three days per week) work well. (Example: Monday, Wed, Friday)
  • One continuous session and multiple shorter sessions (of at least 10 minutes) both work well to improve health and fitness.


Please see Mrs. Trainer at lunch today and tomorrow to sign up for Cross Country and Soccer.
