40th Birthday Block Party
Sunday, September 29, 2013
On a summery September day SCCC celebrated our 40th year with a fantastic birthday block party. Over 200 people stopped by to play games, jump in the bouncy house, make spin art, try the book walk, and play with the water wheel. To crown it all, during the last hour not one but TWO fire trucks pulled up. All afternoon there was great food, a big cake, and lots of catching up with old friends and teachers. Alumni families from every decade dropped by and enjoyed walking through the building and seeing what's new and what hasn't changed. Brian Nelson, a teacher from '79-'84, came by to show his family the silver maple tree he planted in 1979 that now shelters the play yard. Things change and trees and children grow up, but the essence of SCCC remains the same: nourishing and empowering children and families. Parent governed, teacher run and kid powered for 40 years!
A big thank you to the sponsors of this party:

All the wonderful SCCC families and teachers who made the games and activities and volunteered during the party so everything went smoothly!
