Give 100% Spring Fundraiser
We have a great opportunity to MAKE THE DIFFERENCE in the lives of our children with our upcoming spring fundraiser, GIVE 100%! The objective of this school led fundraiser is to raise money to purchase 25 laptops for our MOBILE TECH ZONE while using our IB attitudes and teaching our kids about the importance of trying their hardest and identifying ways they can GIVE 100% throughout their lives.

Our goal is to raise over $18,000. We kick things off with a pep rally on Thursday,February 19th and end with a celebration on the track Friday, February 27th! Watch the video revealed at the pep rally HERE.

Give 100% logoWe are asking you to help students by contributing a flat donation in recognition of a student giving 100%. Grade levels are competing to see which grade can raise the most funds for our school as well as identify how each student gives 100%. Connect your child to 5 givers who can donate a flat donation in recognition of your student giving 100%. Come and cheer on your child at the 100 MILES OF MOVING on Friday, February 27th.

100% of contributions will go to Sara Collins Elementary School and all activities and rewards will include ALL students!

Middle School Registration Information
Dear Parents of Rising 6th Graders,
Registration is just around the corner and there are a few things we want to be sure you know. In March, all students in 5th grade will be able to register for elective classes (related arts) online through SRS. We will send more information about registration soon. However, teachers will register students for their core academic courses and all students will be registered for Physical Education. Each middle school will be hosting a Curriculum Information night for parents. If your child’s school is not on the list please check that schools website or give us a call. All schools should have this information posted on their website. Please call our department if you have any questions.
Thank you!

School Closings and Delays
Click HERE for WYFF Channel 4 school closings and delays.

From Our School Nurses:
In an effort to decrease the spread of contagious illness at school, we would like to remind you of the following:

If your student has fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school (this is without use of fever reducing medications). Fever is defined as a temperature of 100.4 or greater.

If your student is complaining of itching of the head, they must be checked for head lice. If live lice are found they must be treated before returning to school. For more information visit the DHEC website.

If your student has vomiting or diarrhea, they must be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school. Diarrhea is defined as 3 or more episodes of loose stools in a 24 hour period. They must not come to school if vomiting 2 or more times in 24 hours. A student should be able to have 1 or 2 meals without vomiting before returning to school.

If you are ever unsure if your child should come to school or return to school ask yourself these questions:
1. Does my child’s illness keep him/her from comfortably taking part in activities?
2. Does my sick child need more care than the staff can give without affecting the health and safety of
other children?
3. Could other children get sick from being near my child?
If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", please keep your child out of school.

Visit the DHEC School Exclusion list for more information.

And, as always, consult your school nurses with questions/concerns.

Lego Robotics - WWII Stories Blog
Welcome to “Children Remember WWII”
“Lego Bionics”, a Lego Robotics team at Sara Collins Elementary School wants others to learn about World War II. The team believes it is important to collect and highlight stories that are not in history books, especially stories from children’s points of view. Lego Bionics collected stories and remembrances from family members and friends. The team also collected books, videos, and links to help you learn about World War II and the people who experienced it. They invite you to share your stories to be posted in their blog. You may send stories through the “Comments” button on the blog, or to hhamner@greenville.k12.sc.us.
