Somers School Community, Inc

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We hope you enjoyed your summer break and are ready for the opportunities a new school year brings.  Whether you are new to Somers or have been with us for some time, we hope you will join with us in keeping our school community active and enriching.

Last year thanks to our community we able to complete the 4k playground. Box Top collections were the key contributor to making the playground happen.  Our funds assisted with the purchase of flexible seating to support personalized learning.  We host fun events like our Barnes & Nobles Book Fair, Picture Days, Winter Dance, Variety Show, Family Nights, Staff Appreciation week and Art Night.  The SSC also fundraises to support the school budget for awards, spirit wear, unique projects, parent/teacher conference dinners and educational opportunities.

Our meetings are every 3rd Tuesday (subject to change) of the month in the school library at 6 pm. Free childcare is provided. Our Principal, Wendy Tindall, staff and committees share all the happenings at Somers and what to look for in the coming months.
