Fourth Grade Using New Technology in Classroom

Brad Hobbs, ordained pastor and son of Ann Hobbs, talked to Mrs. Hobbs’ fourth grade class about Bible translations of the New Testament via Zoom Room today.

At SCA, we connect with the world using state of the art technology as we reinforce biblical principles. We are “breaking the fourth wall” with technology. Thank you to our Technology Director, Vicki Davis, for helping to make this happen!

Charleston Gift Wrap Sale Totals

Each fall, we begin the year with a school-wide gift wrap sale through Charleston Wrap. We are pleased to announce a record sale. Thanks to every family that participated and made this year’s sale a success!

As of Wednesday (September 19), we collected in cash and sales a total of $28,500! 

All elementary students collected ‘Zoo Crew’ key chains for every two items they sold. We were pleased to give out so many key chains this year! The top sellers will participate in the Zoo Crew Grand Prix Race to determine the overall winner in the elementary school. The finalists for the race will be announced next week in Chapel.

All secondary students who turned in sales received No HW passes and free jeans passes. The top sellers in the middle school and high school earned a Free Day Out of School! These two winners will be announced in Chapel next week as well.

First Elementary Chapel

First through fifth grade students were excited to have their first elementary chapel yesterday.  We always enjoy hearing “good news” from each class and recognizing our new students. We also welcomed Mrs. Deborah Holman, our new second grade teacher, to our school. This was our first grade students’ first experience meeting with the elementary students. Thanks to Pastor Mark Scardino, Sherwood Baptist Church Children’s Minister, for speaking to us about our theme verse this year, and to Bethany for leading us in music and worship.

SCA Competes at State Geography & Spelling Bees

SCA sent five students to the GICAA State Geography and Spelling Bees in Greensboro. Geography Bee participants were 8th graders Jacob Lindsey and Caroline Dougherty. They competed against 24 regional finalists from across the state. Congratulations to Jacob Lindsey who placed 5th in the final round to medal for SCA!

Fifth grader William Greene competed for SCA in the Elementary State Spelling Bee. He competed against 18 regional finalists from throughout Georgia. William performed very well and finished 3rd in the state! Congratulations, William!

Middle schoolers Hudson Carter (7th) and Kyla Raven (8th) competed for SCA in the Middle School State Spelling Bee against a field of 17 regional finalists. They both competed very well with Kyla finishing in 4th place! Congratulations, Kyla! We are very proud of all of our state level participants!

SCA Competes in Spelling Bee


Four students from SCA competed in the GICAA South Region Spelling Bee on March 12 hosted by Sherwood Baptist Church. Students from ten different schools in the southern part of the state competed in two divisions: elementary and middle school.

Elementary representatives, coached by Mrs. Jill Johnson, were 5th graders Luke Bergrab and William Greene. The middle school, coached by Mrs. Jackie Byrd, was represented by 7th grader Hudson Carter and 8th grader Kyla Raven. The top two finishers in each division received medals and the top six finishers placed for state to be held next Monday in Greensboro.

Congratulations to William Greene for finishing in 1st place in the elementary division. Likewise, congratulations to Hudson Carter and Kyla Raven for finishing tied for 4th place in the middle school division! All three will represent SCA at the State Spelling Bee.

Elementary Chapel

Elementary students enjoyed “Music Week” in chapel today.  Thanks to Mrs. Knuckles for leading our chapel and to Mrs. Johnson for bringing back “Hagalina, Magalina.” It was such a fun morning!

Coach Fyock recognized three new students for the SCA Mileage Club, and Mrs. Orr presented our Accelerated Reader Certificates. Mrs. Hager, Mrs. Knuckles and all the elementary teachers had the opportunity to share what their favorite part of this school year has been so far. Teachers shared about the 100th Day of School, Dr. Seuss Week, Veterans Day, Christmas programs, fifth grade’s persuasive letters, animal notebooks, games in the classrooms, ministry projects to the nursing home, field trips, new teaching partners and Bible. Of course some of our favorite memories were the students who had shared in chapel this year that they had come to know Christ and been baptized. It was a very special chapel!

Elementary Chapel & AR Points

Elementary students enjoyed having several of our high school Student Council members in chapel on Thursday. Burch Langstaff and Nathan Roberts spoke to the students about how to be a “light” to others. The Student Council gave all of the elementary students glow sticks, and the lights were turned out to demonstrate how a small light can make a big difference, which elementary students loved.

All of the students shared about their favorite part of being on Student Council. These students are involved in numerous projects within the school and community and their desire is to spiritually impact our school. Thanks to Nathaniel Sancinito (Student Council Chaplain), Landon Davidson (10th Grade Chaplain), Ally Flynt (8th Grade Chaplain), Conner Mathis (7thGrade Chaplain), Burch (Vice President) and Nathan (9th Grade Chaplain) for taking the time to lead our chapel.
