Upcoming PTSO Events
South County Parents, Guardians, and Students – Become part of the Stallion Brick Walk of Fame!
The Spring Order Deadline is March 24th! This will be the last order until the fall. Every effort will be made to ensure these bricks will be installed in time for graduation!
This is a great opportunity to honor and celebrate your child’s SCHS experience—especially if you have a graduating senior! The “Walk of Fame” is located inside the SCHS Football Stadium, surrounding the Stallion statues by the concession stand. Funds raised from the brick sales support the SCHS PTSO.
Bricks can be engraved with up to three lines of text and two emblems. To download an order form, go to http://southcountyptso.org/stallion-walk-of-fame/. Order forms are also available in the front office at SCHS. You may contact Janice Myers at email@example.com with questions.

The Class of 2017 Baccalaureate Service will take place at 7PM on June 14, 2017, at New Hope Church in Lorton. Baccalaureate is a time-honored tradition held at many high schools, colleges and universities. At South County High School, this inspirational ceremony celebrates the achievements, accomplishments and aspirations of our graduating students. In addition to performances by SCHS Seniors, various community leaders and clergy will be featured. All seniors who attend will take part in a candle lighting ceremony. Baccalaureate is sponsored by the PTSO, parents and student volunteers.
Planning meetings will begin in February. Parents are welcome to be involved! A committee run by parents will oversee the organization of the service, including invitations, programs, arranging speakers, assisting with student performances, and event coordination. If you would like to learn more about Baccalaureate or help with the planning, please contact the Baccalaureate Coordinator, Jennifer MacDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
