Happy Friday Shark Families!

We had a wonderful week of learning and growing! Students have been working hard in their classrooms and many Project Based Learning units are finishing this coming week. In your classroom newsletters, teachers will be letting you know about their Public Products soon. One Public Product involves every student in the whole school through our IMPACT classes. See the graphic below about the Bee Advocacy event! We are also very excited to have our Title One - Open House this coming Tuesday, September 27, 2022! We are so thankful to be able to show our parents everything we have learned so far! Can't wait to see you!

Committed to Success,

Heather Touchberry

September is Attendance Awareness Month

Soccer Reading Logs

This is the last week of the Greenville Triumph Soccer Club "Read To Score" challenge! Remember that if your student reads three age-appropriate books by September 30, he or she will receive a FREE ticket to the soccer match on Saturday, October 8th! Write the titles on the Read To Score bookmarks distributed a few weeks ago (or write them on a sheet of paper), initial that you verify your child has read the books, put the student's name and teacher's name on the bookmark, and turn these in to Mrs. Mayo. Students will also get to participate in a halftime parade at the match!
