Greenbrier Elementary is participating in Salvation Army's "Stuff a Stocking" Drive this holiday season to spread kindness into the Greenville community. Each classroom has received two stockings, one for a boy and one for a girl, for a designated age group. We greatly appreciate support from our school families in the stuffing of these stockings! Suggestions for stocking stuffers can be found here.
Age groups are as follows by grades:
4K & 5K - Infant
1st - Toddler
2nd - Ages 4-6
Special Education - Ages 4-6
3rd - Ages 7-9
4th - Ages 10-13
5th - Ages 10-13
Thank you for your support!
Changes to the Epipen Policy
Changes have been made to the district's policy on Epinephrine prodecures. This medication is most commonly known as the Epipen and is given for severe allergic reactions. Until now, students had to have a prescription and their own epipen in the health room. Students with known allergies still need to provide their own epipen and must have a health plan with Nurse Robert. First responders may now treat students with an unknown allergy in emergency situations. Please see the health form on the SAVE act that explains these policy changes in detail. It is the first link under the district health forms. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Nurse Robert by email or phone (355-5307).
Winter Holiday Break
Greenville County Schools and Offices will be closed for the winter holiday from Monday, December 23 through Friday, January 3.
Students and staff will return on Monday, January 6, 2014. We hope our Greenbrier Family has a joyous and safe holiday!
Week of December 9
Our Word of the Week is Gravity – Gravity is a force of attraction between two objects. All objects with mass have gravity. Gravity acts like a magnet - pulling objects together.
Good News Club will not meet on Monday. Good News will resume in January, following the winter break.
December Birthdays will be celebrated on Tuesday, December 10. Please drop off cupcakes or a healthy alternative to the front office.
Our School Store will be open on Tuesday and Thursday from 7:15-7:50 AM.
Communication Folders will be sent home on Tuesday.
Make-ups for Ident-a-Kid Photos/IDs will be made on Tuesday beginning at 8:15 AM.
This week is your last chance to purchase a Chick-fil-A calendar! As you know, Greenbrier special education classes are selling Chick-fil-A calendars to raise funds for our students to attend the Special Olympics at no cost! Calendars are $6, and checks can be made out to Greenbrier Elementary.
Join us on Thursday, December 12 for Spirit Night at the Moe’s in Simpsonville any time between 5:00 and 8:00 PM. Proceeds support Greenbrier’s program!
Our school day begins promptly at 8:00 AM. If dropping your child off in the morning, please use the entrance at the marquee. The second entrance is for staff, buses and vans only.
Also, students should not exit their cars in the morning until 7:15 AM, when a teacher is out on duty. We want students to be safe and cannot provide supervision until the building opens.
Please refrain from frequent early dismissals. If you find that it is necessary to sign your child out early, please do so prior to 2:00 PM.
Our car line ends at 2:50 PM. Please ensure you are in line by this time so that your child can be part of the last group. Otherwise, you will need to enter the building to sign your child out. Frequent late pick-up will lead to your child being placed in our after school program for a cost.
As always, thank you for your support of Greenbrier Elementary! Let’s have a great week and remember to TTTBK!
