5th grade students will be at Barrier Island on Wednesday, December 4 through Friday, December 6. Students are reminded to meet at Greenbrier no later than 7:00 AM on Wednesday. Please pack a snack and a drink for the rest area stop. Students will not be allowed to use the vending machines when we stop. We will provide snacks and bottled water on the return trip. Make sure to follow guidelines for packing, as there is limited space on the bus for excess bags. As a reminder, students may not bring electronics on the trip. Please leave these at home. Also, please drop off all medications on TUESDAY morning (December 3) between 7:15 and 8:00 AM. Mrs. Parker will be in the lobby to take medications from parents/guardians.
Join us on Thursday, December 5 for Spirit Night at the Chick-fil-A in Simpsonville any time between 5:00 and 8:00 PM. Proceeds support Greenbrier’s program!
Greenbrier special education classes are selling Chick-fil-A calendars again this year to raise money for the Special Olympics! Calendars are $6. Checks can be made out to Greenbrier Elementary. Last year our special needs students were able to attend Special Olympics at no cost because of your awesome support!
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!
