Special Donation to Washington Center
Our neighbors, the students of Washington Center, were recently presented with a positioning “Chill-out Chair” thanks to our PTA and community support. Over $2,000 in funds for the purchase were generated through this year's annual yard sale held by Sara Collins PTA. The chair will be located in the Washington Center Multi-Sensory Area to afford comfortable seating for the school’s orthopedically impaired students. Thank you, PTA, for helping us reach out to others in our community. Year after year, you exemplify service and caring.
Volunteer Appreciation Week
This week, April 21 - 25, is Volunteer Appreciation Week. We are recognizing our volunteers, many of whom work "behind the scenes" to help make our school the outstanding place that it is. If you're able to be at school this week, check out the screen in the front office for some of our Volunteer MVPs, and help yourself to a small token of thanks from your PTA Board for all you do to make our school great!
Keep saving those Box Tops!! The last date to turn in Box Tops for the school year will be Friday May 2. Collections sheets were sent home with students. Contact Kim Troyer (email@example.com) or Misty Hardaway (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions, or for more collection sheets.
SCES is a LiveWell Greenville School
Parents are finding creative ways help Sara Collins "Live Well!"
Did you know that Sara Collins Elementary is one of only 16 schools in all of Greenville county that have received the LiveWell Greenville Healthy School designation? That means that we are taking steps to create a school environment that promotes healthy eating and active living.
Parents are finding creative ways to support this environment by choosing to send healthy treats for birthdays and for test day snacks. Some delicious, healthy options we have seen lately include:
Fruit and yogurt parfaits
Healthy granola bars
Muffins or breads, such as banana, pumpkin, zucchini, etc.
Apple slices with honey or caramel
Trail mix (made with dried fruits, pretzels, mini chocolate chips, etc.)
Dried fruit like raisins, apricots, prunes
100% fruit roll ups
Squeezable yogurt or apple sauce
THANK YOU to all the parents supporting Sara Collins' efforts to be a LiveWell School!
