Michael Finklea Author Visit
Michael Finklea has visited over 2,800 schools and he is coming to our school next. On Wednesday, March 27th, he will talk with 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Michael's presentation promotes writing: you can be an author at any age, revising (once is never enough), being positive and not giving up, punching up stories, author's purpose and how using your imagination to write stories helps you concentrate and focus. He uses his dream of becoming a writer to illustrate how he succeeded and overcame the obstacles associated with ADD. An autograph session will follow. The author's books will be on sale and all books will be personally autographed. Turn book orders into Mrs. Aucoin in the library. Book Order Form

TEXT MESSAGES FOR SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS AND EMERGENCY SCHEDULE CHANGES
In an effort to better communicate with parents during times of emergency the Greenville County Schools Communications Department has created an English and Spanish form to be completed by families wishing to receive text message alerts about school closings. The form is only for parents who currently have a landline listed as their “Primary Contact Phone” and wish to receive texts about school cancellations or other emergency schedule changes. Parents who already list a cellular phone as their primary contact will not need to take action to receive this service.
