Volunteers Welcome

We appreciate and need our volunteers.  They are one of the many reasons Sevier is such a great school.  Without their help, our events could not be possible.  We encourage all our parents to be involved as a volunteer in whichever way that is convenient for them.  Opportunities include donating items, helping at events and class activities, chaperoning field trips, and helping with PTA chair positions.   Please take the time to make sure you ready to volunteer by checking your district volunteer status and expiration date at the Volunteer Portal.   Those that need to apply as a volunteer may learn more and apply at the District Volunteer Page.  We encourage all parents to apply as a Volunteer 2 (chaperone).  This application is good for 3 years, so please think ahead to include other schools that you may volunteer in the future.  Most of our volunteer activities are communicated through our PTA, so please stay in the loop by completing the PTA Parent Contact form.  This does not obligate you to participate in any event, but allows you to receive volunteer opportunity information.


ACE Awards

ace awards logo image

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 72 male and female students from each of the 35 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.

If you would like to nominate an 8th or 12th grader, complete and submit a nomination form (available in the School Counseling office) or go on-line to the  ACE Awards tab of the Coaches for Character Website to submit.   Nominations open Monday, October 14, 2019 and must be submitted by January 31, 2020. An ACE Awards 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. All ACE award recipients will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony in the spring.
