New Grading System for 4-K thru 5th Grade
St. Croix Central is excited to introduce a new grading system in the fall of 2014. Kindergarten through fifth grade students will be using standards-based grading in order to help students, teachers, and parents better understand the needs and strengths of each child in relation to the Common Core State Standards. The staff at SCC believes that standards-based grading will celebrate the strengths and support the challenges of all students.
For more information about grading in 5th grade, please visit the STANDARDS & REPORT CARDS page.
MS Cross-Country Season Begins!
It’s another year and the weather has been favorable for cross-country! This season we are running with approximately fifty 6th - 8th graders. The team is very well balanced, hungry to run, and hoping to continue our conference successes. Team captains are Kourtney LaBeause, Alivia Smith, Claire Moll, DJ Busch, and Riley Hackbarth. Our first meet was at Prescott where we faced a tough New Richmond team. We had some excellent individual performances by Angelica Olson, Liberty Grant, Claire Moll, DJ Busch, Cole Becker, Blake Olson, and Cougar Holder. Both of our teams took a close second to New Richmond. We are looking forward to flipping the results next time we meet on their course. Saturday, September 20th was our first home middle school meet at the SCC Cross- Country Trail. It was a beautiful morning and a great race. The boys’ team faced Grantsburg and took second, even with DJ Busch taking third overall. The SCC MS girls’ and the Colfax MS girls’ team were neck and neck during the race, only to miss winning the meet by two points. We had four girls in the top ten. This will speak volumes when we see Colfax again at conference. Liberty Grant took 3rd overall with Angelica Olson, Claire Moll and Brooklyn Mishler rounding out the top ten. It is going to be an amazing season. I hope you can come cheer us on!

New Archery Program at SCC!
We are pleased to announce a new, focused, competitive archery club for SCC students. The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is a successful program designed for schools. SCC – NASP Archery will focus on the students’ success on the range and in life. Since our program is in its infancy, its direction will largely depend on the participants and the supporters of the program.
High school and middle school NASP certified educators, along with three trained community members, the focus will remain on you, the student. All of us are ready to share our experiences with you and help you to the next level. Come join us. All 5th – 12th grade students are welcome.
Contact High School Physical Education Teacher Mr. Langman by phone at (715) 796-5383 or email email@example.com to get started.
