Appreciation in Action
Roles were reversed at Sara Collins Elementary where students took time to prepare and serve Food and Nutrition Services (FANS) staff lunch. Special needs students went on a field trip to purchase items and spent the morning preparing a meal that they served to thank the FANS staff for their service to the school. Check out the video!

Greenville Journal Partnership
Greenville Journal Partnership - We are excited to announce a new partnership with The Greenville Journal to showcase our award-winning students, staff, and schools in a way that’s never been done before! The Journal has created a Greenville County Schools section on their website where parents and other community members can watch videos, view photos, link to our website and Facebook page, and find information on special topics such as the Strategic Education Plan. Our first e-publication of Class Acts has been posted here. Future Class Acts editions will be posted in April and June. The Graduation Edition and Teachers of the Year editions will be printed and distributed through The Journal, copies will be delivered to schools, and the information will be posted on this page. Please share this link on your school’s homepage so parents may see their award-winning students and staff.

The Amazing Shake

The Amazing Shake is a competition that allowed our 5th grade students the opportunity to demonstrate manners, self-discipline, respect, and professional conduct. This was our first time planning such an event, and we were excited to have members of the community partner with us. The competition was completed in four rounds. For more details and a slide show, check out this link!
