Grade levels will be competing to see who can raise the most money. To kick things off, we will have Hats on for Books on Friday, February 15th. Every student who brings $1.00 may wear a hat.
Greenville County Comprehensive Plan
Join us for the start of the year-long Greenville County Comprehensive Plan project! The goal of this plan is to improve your lives across the next ten years, so we want to hear from you! Come prepared to share your thoughts on issues and opportunities facing Greenville County. The workshop will include a variety of interactive stations, mapping exercises, visual preference surveys, and discussion tables. The feedback you provide us at these meetings will be summarized to create a preliminary report of community priorities, preferences and concerns that will guide the development of the Comprehensive Plan.

At-Risk 4K Pre-Registration begins January 16, 2019. To be considered, children must turn four-years-old on or before September 1, 2019. Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center UNTIL MARCH 12, 2019. Pre-registration will NOT be accepted after March 12. 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. Notification of 4K acceptance will be mailed to parents early April 2019. PLEASE NOTE: 4K screenings will be held for pre-registered children March 27-29, 2019. The parent/legal guardian must pre-register the child and bring the following documents (note, you cannot pre-register without these documents): Photo ID from any state or country, Birth Certificate, Properly Signed Certificate of Immunization or a Conditional Certificate of Immunization or Religious Exemption Certificate (Religious Exemption Certificate is provided by the Health Department), Two current “proof of residency” documents (all must contain property address): current bills (i.e. electric, gas, water, cable) and/or current mortgage statement or current signed lease agreement with landlord’s name and phone number. All 4K Pre-Registration forms are located at the GCS Parent Page.
