The Amazing Shake

Car Line Reminders

Please note these important reminders for the car lines. THANK YOU!

7:55 on a clock Students should arrive NO LATER THAN 7:55 in order to be in their seats, ready for instruction at 8:00.  
If your child arrives after 8am, you must walk your child in to the front office to be signed in.  

School crossing sign  Please make sure to pay close attention at the corner of Parkins Mill Road and Windmont as you are rounding the corner to go to back carpool.  Dozens of children cross at that intersection and need to get safely across the road.  Do not block the cross walk while waiting in line.  
No cell phone sign For the safety of all, please refrain from using cell phones in the car line.

2017-18 Teacher of the Year


Patti RenwickWe are pleased to announce Mrs. Patti Renwick as the Sara Collins 2017-18 Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Renwick was selected by her peers to represent our school as an exemplary teacher. She currently teaches Kindergarten at Sara Collins. Hundreds of students have had a wonderful beginning to their school years in Mrs. Renwick's classroom.

Patti was born in Oakland, California. Her father was enlisted the Navy, and she moved many times with her family to places with a naval base such as Guam, Naples Italy, Virginia, and Charleston. She graduated from Lander College in Greenwood, South Carolina where she earned her BS in early childhood and elementary education in 1987. She married Doug, her high school sweetheart, and they moved to Toccoa, Georgia where she taught second grade at Big A Elementary in 1989. From 1991-1997 Patti taught first and second grade at Pleasant View Primary in Laurens County. She was teacher of the year at Pleasant View Primary for the 1993-1994 school year. Patti became a teacher in Greenville County in 1998 where she worked one year as a first grade teacher at Tryon Street Elementary in Greer. She transferred to Sara Collins Elementary in 1999 where she has taught kindergarten for the past 18 years. When she isn’t teaching, Patti and her husband love to attend sporting events at Clemson University. Her main reason to visit Clemson is to see her youngest daughter Lindsay who will be a senior. She also loves going to Charlotte, NC to visit her daughter, Elizabeth and son-in-law, Jake.
