Get ready to compete in this year's canned food drive! There will be a grade level competition to see which grade can bring in the most items to support the Piedmont Emergency Relief Center as we approach the upcoming holidays. Items can be canned soups, meats, vegetables, boxed potatoes, rice, grits, oatmeal, dry pasta, dried beans, ramen noodles, and dry cereals.

Student Council asks for your help as we collect items from November 6th through November 20th. Please be sure to check the expiration dates before bringing any items to school. They can be placed by the brick wall in your grade level section, or turned into your homeroom teacher. Student council members will be coming around to collect from classrooms beginning November 11th.  If you have any questions, please see Ms. Mosher, or Mrs. George

A Word from Ms. Couch....

It has been brought to my attention that children are being allowed out of their cars in the afternoon car line to play on trees, cars, and other property. This poses a safety concern as well as a potential for damage to personal and school property.  Children should remain in their car in the dismissal line at all times.  The line usually clears to no wait by 3:40 p.m. if you would prefer to arrive at that time.  Please remember that all students should be picked up no later than 4:00 p.m.  Thank you for your attention to this matter, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  

ACE Awards Nominations are being accepted

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 to the Coaches4Character and click on the ACE Awards tab.   Nominations 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.
