What is AWESOME WEEK, you ask?  Well, it is a week where our 9th grade will leave our school campus and make NYC our classroom, traveling places all over Manhattan and Brooklyn as we explore how all the stuff we learn in school actually applies in the real world.  Each student gets to select the exploration that inspires the most curiosity in their life.  Check out our activities!
  

Pitch! 

Ever wondered how commercials get made?  In this course, students will learn how a product gets marketed to consumers (us!).  Following the process from start to finish, students will visit an advertising agency, research a product, conduct consumer surveys, write a script for a 30 second radio commercial, cast an actor to read the script, direct and finally produce a commercial in one of the city's premier recording studios

Try this if you are captivated by commercials, advertising, and the recording process.


Early NYC History

Students will spend the week exploring Native American culture in the Smithsonian, visiting the museum of the city of New York, and take a walking tour of lower Manhattan. Students will also engage in research at the Brooklyn Public library. At the end, students will put together a museum exhibit showing how early New York developed.

Try this if you are love to learn more about the history around us or if you like to explore new places


Building our World Together: One Green Step at a Time 

Are you interested in inventing and building?  Do you have an eye for design and a creative mind?  Come learn how to utilize the newest technological advances and explore green design in our communities.  The "green" architect designs structures using eco-friendly materials that are actually good for our environment.   So come design a solar race car or learn how wind energy can help us save the world

Try this if you are interested in engineering, artistic design, or saving our planet! 


Feeling Good from the Inside Out

Being a teenage girl isn’t easy! Turn on the television or open a magazine and you will find a world of unfair images and expectations that tell women they must look or dress a certain way in order to be and feel worthy. Sometimes we get so caught up in the trends and other people’s expectations, that we forget to focus on what is best for us. In this course, we will explore what it means to be the happiest and healthiest versions of ourselves and we will do it together, as a supportive and strong sisterhood. On our journey towards self-discovery, we will get insider haircare, skincare, and makeup tips straight from the pros, learn how to dress for our body types, practice preparing healthy snacks that fuel our bodies and much much more. By the end of this course, we will have learned how to care for our bodies and souls from the inside out.

Try this if you like sports, eating, and taking care of your body.


Show Your Voice

How will you change the world? Over the course of the week, you will write, perform, and film your own art pieces to answer this question. We will work in the beautiful, cutting-edge BRIC House and explore the delicious food and cultural wealth that Downtown Brooklyn has to offer.

Try this if you love to make or act in movies.



Celebrating NYC Through Movies

NYC has been the backdrop of countless movies and television shows. It is arguably the most recognizable city in the world.  Do you know how Times Square got its name?  The secrets of Central Park? In this course, you will learn about the city in which you live, from the bridges to the buildings.

Try this if you would love to explore NYC, watch movies, and learn about the cultural history of our amazing city!

Shortly before Valentines Day, members of the Volunteer Service Club took a trip to the nearby Linden Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation to make the holiday a little brighter for senior citizens in our community. Before the trip, students crafted over 85 handmade Valentines cards for the nursing home residents. Upon arriving at the center, volunteers were treated to a tour of the space before handing out their Valentines and spending a cheerful afternoon visiting and playing board games with their new senior citizen friends. Students and seniors alike had such a good time, we are planning a return trip

Student Speeches



Taniah - 6th Grade


Good Afternoon.  My names is Taniah Johnson and I am in the 6th grade.  I want to start off by saying what I am thankful for.  I am thankful for my family and friends and being able to spend the holidays with them.  I am thankful for waking up this morning.  I would also like to say make sure to keep love in your heart,  integrity in your mind and empathy close by.  I wish everyone a happy New Year and a Merry Christmas.  


Eessence - 7th Grade


Teamwork, integrity, openness, empathy, love, curiosity, passion, and justice. These words are the embodiment of what this school strives to achive. I consider the community here my family.


Teamwork plays a big role in what makes this school a community, SCCS offers a variety of clubs where students can work with fellow classmates as a team. These clubs teach us how to support each other and be open to new ideas both of which or two important skills that are necessary to succeed in life. Without these clubs we wouldn't posses the qualities a well funded student needs,


Next are love and passion. When you love something you are passionate about it. For example the drama club is very passionate about acting and entertaining the SCCS community, I love acting and performing but unfortunately some kids don't get the same opportunity to perform and embrace their talent because most NYC public schools cut performing art from their curriculum,


Our teachers at SCCS inspire us to be true to ourselves and develop good morals. They teach us to respect ourselves and each other. Someone with integrity is a person who is honorable, respectable and true to every one of our teachers,


Teamwork, integrity, openness, empathy, love, curiosity, passion, and justice. These are the values I learned at SCCS,

Naffisat - 8th Grade


Good afternoon Staff and Students,

I am grateful to be an 8th Grade Student at SCCS. Being here for the past 3 years has increased my skills in teamwork, integrity, showing love and empathy, having passion, being open to other people, and upholding justice. This year plan to be successful and accomplished. Through this, my teachers and friends have guided me along. Over this winter break I want all of you to think about how accomplished you want to be in the future it's time for us to choose what route we want to take in life, and though it may be difficult, I think we are uр for the challenge. Thank you and Happy Holiday


Kalyn - 9th Grade


Dear SCCS students and staff,

Today is a Wonderful day to celebrate the holidays, as we all come together as one to enjoy potluck with food and fun. The holidays is a time to come together and talk to friends and family about life and be grateful for the things we have. Personally am grateful for my friends, my family, and my teachers, for their advice and tender love and care. Today when you go home I advise you to tell your family you really love them, give them a big hug and kiss and let them know that you appreciate everything they do for you.


Now stop and look around you... What do you see?


I see the joyful faces of students glad to take a day off of classwork. I also see joyful teachers admiring their students and getting to know them better. I see the joyful faces of a community that is always open to others, that is curious, loving, and focused on helping students succeed . WE ARE THE FUTURE llllllllllll

So as Brian Andreas said, there are things you

do because they feel right and they may make no sense and they may make no money and it may be the real reason we are here: to love each other and to eat each

other's cooking and say it was good.
