Commencement for the Class of 2019 was held Tuesday, June 11th. Listed below are a collection of documents, photos, and news articles capturing memories of the grads' special day. 

Congratulations to the Class of 2019!

Hearty congratulations are extended to the members of the Class of 2019 on reaching the milestone of high school graduation! While graduation brings about the close of one chapter of a student's life, it also serves as the launching point for an exciting phase of new opportunities and adventures.

Students Retire Old Glory

Colby Adams, Class of 2021, organized and led a flag retirement ceremony on the last day of school before members of the sophomore class. Colby, a member of Boy Scouts Troop 67 of Catawissa, assisted by fellow troop members, retired two United States flags that were flown over Southern Columbia schools, explaining each step of the process as it unfolded.

Community Unites to Raise Mental Health Awareness

Southern Columbia's students and staff purchased t-shirts designed by Tori Romania, Class of 2019, which were worn on Mental Health Awareness Day. All proceeds from the sale of the shirts were donated to the McDowell Institute at Bloomsburg University.

Students Get "Backstage Pass to the Blues"

World-class Bluesman Clarence Spady recently visited with Southern Columbia students to guest teach a lesson about “the roots of the music that they listen to every day.” The talented vocalist, guitarist and 2012 inductee into the International Blues Hall of Fame, met with the High School’s Guitar, Band and Chorus classes providing them an hour-long, interactive guitar and music workshop.

Annual Events Mark a Fun Way to Close Out Another School Year!

Southern Columbia's Pickleball Tournament and "The Great SCA Egg Drop" are two popular annual events not only because they keep students highly-engaged and entertained, but also because their occurrence signals that the start of summer vacation is near!
