Alexander's Student Council

 

Fifth grade teachers always get excited this time of year because not only do we get to exercise our right to VOTE, but we also run a Student Council Election!  Students must create a campaign poster, write a speech, and convince their classmates to vote for them.  The elected Student Council members will not only represent their class, but the grade level as well.  These students will be leaders around the school, helping when needed and offering support to students and faculty members.  They take on extra responsibilities and exemplify what it means to be a SOARING EAGLE.  Please get to know your Student Council members and feel free to ask them for anything you need!

The Alexander Elementary School Representatives and Members are....

Ms. Miller's Class: Alba Figueroa - Representative and Yauri Perez - Alternate

Mr. Qualls' Class: Skye McClaren - Representative, Josafat Hernandez - Alternate, and Michel Turcios - Alternate

Music Grant

      

Greenville Elks Lodge makes $3,014 donations to Music Programs at Three Greenville County schools

GREENVILLE, S.C. (October 15, 2014) – At its bi-monthly meeting, The Greenville Elks Lodge donated a total of $3,014 to three Greenville County Schools through The Music Club of Greenville.

The donations to the music teachers from Brook Glenn Elementary, Alexander Elementary School, and Tanglewood Middle School School are specifically designated to purchase new and improved music instruments and equipment for students.

“This is the third year of the partnership with the Greenville Elks Lodge," said Beth Braswell, Fundraising Chairman for The Music Club of Greenville "Each year, our teachers express their deep thanks to the Elks and share stories about how these grants for instruments create such joy and hope for their students.”

 “As important as reading, writing and math are to the success and growth of our youth, the Greenville Elks believe a well-rounded education includes the arts,” said Greenville Elks Lodge  Exalted Ruler David Loudin. “That’s why we believe contributing $3,014 to the music programs of these three Greenville County schools is so important. It’s obvious that these funds are making a difference and we look forward to a long relationship with The Music Club of Greenville and the music programs of the Greenville County schools.”

The Greenville Elks is dedicated to local programs serving the community’s youth. As a national organization and through local chapters, the Elks provide youth programs, including the annual Hoop Shoot and Soccer Shoot competitions, the Americanism Essay contest, the Dictionary Program, the largest anti-drug program in the country and the largest scholarship program for high school seniors with awards in excess of $3.3 million a year.

For more information regarding youth programs sponsored by the Elks or the Greenville Elks chapter, go to http://www.elks.org/programs/ or http://www.bpoe858.org/.

The Music Club of Greenville (MCoG) has been focused on music education for Upstate youth since its beginnings in 1906. In 2014, MCoG awarded $10,000 in scholarships, donated over $8,000 worth of used instruments refurbished for our schools, and, with the help of our community partners, directed over $11,500 in Community Grants into the music education programs of our local schools. For more information or to donate used instruments, visit www.musicclubgreenville.org.

Back To School Supplies Are Coming In

       

The Staff and Students at Alexander Elementary would like to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to Grace Church of Pelham Road. Mrs. Taylor and the members of Grace Church collected school supplies and donated them to our school this week.

 

  

 Another HUGE THANK YOU goes out to Anthropologie Art Supply of Greenville. During this back-to-school season, Anthropologie partnered with DonorsChoose.org to help students get paint, paper, pencils, and all things artsy.  The way that the art supply drive worked is that each Anthropologie store across the country put out collection receptacles with signage between August 22 and September 7th. The stores collected art supplies from employees and customers. Alexander was selected to receive supplies collected from the Greenville Anthropologie location!  Dr. Campbell and Mr. Qualls are pictured with Anthropologie store representative - Hanna Guthrie Diomatraris.

Thanks again to our community partners for all you do to support education. We are honored to have you as part of Team Alexander! 

  

 

The Great Math Race!!

         

 

               

Alexander Eagles are participating in The Great Math Race!   Grades K-5 practice their math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  They are invited to take a timed test to check how well they know their facts.  If they score 100% they are given a "sneaker" to color and hang in the hallway for all to admire!  Go Eagles!
