The 8th grade dance was a huge success. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this dance awesome for our students. A great time was had by all students who attended.
Keep clipping your box tops for next year. They will continue this program next year.
There are still several committees that need chairpersons. So please discern where you can serve next year to make the 2018-2019 school year the best it can be.

School Visitor and Volunteer Guidelines-
Greenville County Schools (GCS), in an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, is implementing additional security checks for school volunteers. Effective immediately, all volunteers must submit an application to the school and receive clearance from the district before interacting with children in the school or chaperoning any school field trip. Volunteers are now identified by two different categories: Level I or Level II. Please review the required procedure by clicking HERE.
Advocating for Your Child's Success - Video HERE
GCS has partnered with District 1 PTA to produce a video outlining how parents can appropriately advocate for their children. The video stresses following proper channels of communications beginning with the teacher or other appropriate employee, working with teachers and other staff, staying informed through Parent Portal and teacher meetings, informing principals of concerns, etc. You can view the video by clicking the link above.
