The Reading All-Stars Program is a reading incentive program for any Kindergarten - 8th grade student aimed at promoting reading and academic success across the upstate. Students are challenged to read 5 reading level appropriate books (Elementary Schools) or 500 pages (Middle Schools) in a 5-week time period to qualify as a Reading All-Star.

Students who complete the reading program will receive a ticket voucher to the Celebration Game. At the game, they will receive Reading All-Stars merchandise, a book for their personal library, and participation in the pre-game parade (Elementary Schools)

Join the Greenville Drive and Michelin, North America for the Greenville County Reading All-Stars Celebration Game on Monday, May 6th at Fluor Field! First pitch is at 7:05 PM, and the fun begins before the game as Reading All-Stars will participate in a pregame parade in celebration of their reading accomplishments. Reading All-Stars and top participating schools will be recognized throughout the night.

GREENVILLE COUNTY COMMUNITY MEETINGS

Greenville County Comprehensive Plan Project - Our county is updating its Comprehensive Plan.  As part of this process, they have scheduled nine community meetings throughout the county, eight of which will be held at Greenville County schools. 

4K PRE-REGISTRATION — JANUARY 16 - MARCH 12

Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center. Children do not have to live in the school attendance area to pre-register at that location. Pre-registration does not guarantee enrollment in a GCS 4K program. Children selected for 4K programs must demonstrate academic/developmental needs and/or risk factors such as low family income and low parent education level. Screened children will be ranked district-wide and those most at-risk for school success will receive initial assignments. Parents must present their child’s birth certificate, immunization certificate or religious exemption certificate, two proofs of residency (same as 5K) and photo ID. 4K pre-registration ends March 12, 2019. For more information contact 355-7359.

 

GCS Emergency Text Alerts

GCS Offers Emergency Text Alerts Through School Messenger
Due to changes in telecommunications laws Greenville County Schools (GCS) is now able to send emergency text messages to parents through the school messenger system if their listed home phone number is text capable. If you are a parent who would like to receive emergency texts and currently have a landline listed as your home number please fill out the form below and return it to your child’s school.

Emergency Alert Form
Formulario de alerta de emergencia

GCS does not send phone messages to families late at night or early in the morning, so a last-minute closing decision, especially one made early in the morning, is sometimes missed. Texting parents provides a less intrusive way to send emergency messages during these hours. 

Though we have been using a text message system called @gcsalerts through Twitter, that system has been less than reliable and is dependent on parents opting in and having push notifications set properly on their phone.  We will continue to use @gcsalerts as a communication redundancy. 

As always, the GCS website, social media platforms, and local media will be used to help disseminate emergency messages.
