  • Gymnasium Improvements Impress

    We announce with great pleasure the newest in a multi-year series of capital improvements to benefit our students’ academic and co-curricular experience. The generosity of friends of Scecina Memorial High School has resulted in many recent updates and upgrades to our multi-purpose gymnasium. The gymnasium, as you know, is where we hold weekly Mass, physical education classes, athletic practices and competitions, Back to School Night, friend-raising events, special assemblies, the Scholar Athlete Awards Program, Senior Awards Day, Commencement, and other memorable experiences.

    During the last two weeks, professional painters applied sparkling coats of cardinal and gold paint throughout the gym. Our school colors are truly evident! New protective padding for both ends of the gym floor is on order, and new glass backboards have been installed. The stage walls have been re-painted in anticipation of musical auditions and performances, and the stage floor now has new carpet and has been freshly painted. A couple finishing details remain, such as re-painting the Football State Championship signs. All the way around, this project is a beautiful upgrade to our campus and continues the strong facility improvement momentum that has been in place for many years thanks to our loyal supporters, Facilities Committee, staff, and other partners.

    I hope you will soon see and experience these updates! Thank you for your support of our school, and Go Crusaders!

  • Charity: Sharing Our God-Given Gifts


    As a way to communicate with you, this blog will be an avenue for sharing news and views regarding Scecina Memorial High School. I look forward to starting this endeavor and welcome your comments and suggestions along the way.

    The opening of the blog coincides with the memorial that our Church celebrates this week to the life of Saint Vincent de Paul. This valiant figure was renowned for his compassion, humility and generosity. He is known to many as the "Great Apostle of Charity".

    Charity, as we know, comes in many shapes and sizes. It can be in the form of donating money and items to a person who is in material need. It can mean lending a compassionate ear or standing up for a person whom others may unfairly critique.

    Above all, being charitable means making the world a better place through the generous and responsible sharing of our time, talents, and treasures for God’s glory and the good of our neighbor. As we contemplate and advance the mission of Scecina Memorial High School, may charity be a hallmark of our efforts to help our diverse community of students grow as servants and leaders. In the lives of heroic figures such as Father Thomas Scecina and Saint Vincent de Paul, we have powerful role models of charity!

    We’ll stay in touch!
