The PJFMS School Improvement Council has done AMAZING work so far this year! As we have looked at ways we can improve family presence in our school, we have initiated the Birdwatchers program. Starting in January, we hope to see the addition of parent volunteers throughout our school day. In order for you to be able to be a Birdwatcher, you MUST be a GCS Level 2 approved volunteer. Please take a moment to view these slides to learn more about the Birdwatchers program, then be on the lookout for sign-up opportunities coming soon.

Nominations for the 2022 ACE Awards are now being accepted! The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to one male and one female student from each of the Greenville County middle and high schools. The award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but who have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please submit your nomination by clicking this link. (Paper nomination forms are available at each school as well.) All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2022. An ACE Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County.
