Greer High to Host Carolina Panthers Football Clinic for Moms

The Carolina Panthers will offer a free Heads Up Football Clinic at Greer High School on May 31 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.  The clinic will be held in conjunction with USA Football, the national governing body of the sport and the Panthers’ youth football development partner.

Each clinic will help provide mothers whose children are interested in playing tackle football with the latest information about player safety and other important information. Carolina Panthers athletic training staff will discuss concussion recognition and a parent’s role, while also covering hydration and prevention of heat-related illness. USA Football master trainers will educate moms on proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting while a Panthers alumni player will discuss football basics including rules and player positions.

Following classroom instruction, the clinic will move out to the field for hands-on instruction from the USA Football master trainers regarding the latest tackling. Participants will receive an official Carolina Panthers Moms’ Clinic event t-shirt. Snacks and water will be provided.

Testing will take place from 8:30am to 1:00pm.  It is important that students arrive to school on time.  Please avoid scheduling any appointments and early dismissals during this time.  EOC exams count as 20% of the student's final grade.

Please note that students may not possess any electronic or other device (such as cell phones, smart watches, etc) that can be used for communication, timing, creating images, or storing images in the classroom during the testing period.  Devices will be collected prior to testing.


Summer Reading

Free books have been provided to students for summer reading.  Please encourage your students to stop by the tables outside of the cafeteria in order to choose a few books for summer reading.  Additionally, the district has a summer reading challenge for students.  We are asking students to tag @GvilleEarlyCol in their tweets.  Students that do not have Twitter can also take pictures of themselves and bring them into our Back to School night.  We will celebrate students that participate when we return to school in the fall.

New! 2018/2019 Time Schedule Change

As a part of Greenville County Schools, GEC will follow the academic calendar for all students.  In 2018 – 2019, students will have a different beginning and ending time.  The purpose of this change is to ensure that all middle and high school students meet the academic seat time requirement for the state.  This time change will also support our goal of remediating and accelerating students appropriately. 

 All students will be able to arrive as early as 7:45am.  All classes for middle and high school students will begin promptly at 8:15am.  All students that arrive to school after 8:15am are considered late and will miss valuable classroom instruction.  All students will be dismissed at 3:15pm.  Shuttle transportation will still be provided to students participating in athletics for Tanglewood, Lakeview, and Carolina.

Attracting and retaining a skilled workforce is the number one challenge facing employers in Greenville, particularly in high-demand industries like advanced manufacturing, construction, and healthcare.

Recognizing that work-based learning benefits students, employers, schools, and the community, the Greenville Chamber and Greenville County Schools have partnered to create LaunchGVL, an initiative to connect high school students with paid work opportunities in Greenville’s high-demand occupations.

Paired with relevant coursework, students will launch their careers in one of six pathways and enter the workforce and college more equipped to succeed. As participating businesses supplement their workforce with energetic students, they also create a talent pipeline to fill the jobs of the future and close the growing skills gap. Those pathways include:

Most internships last for approximately 8 weeks. Students can work part-time or full-time during the summer. During the school year, students usually work between 10 and 20 hours per week. The internships will be offered Summer 2018, Fall 2018 and Spring 2019.

Work-Based Learning Coordinators from Greenville County Schools will match interns with opportunities based on the relevant courses taken and/or the student’s expression of interest in a particular field or occupational area. The Work-Based Learning Coordinator serves as the liaison between the school site and the work site.

For more details regarding the program and to sign up, please visit the LaunchGVL website.
