In an effort to achieve our district-wide goal of increased communication throughout the year, we've posted the Elementary School "Morning Message" on the school website. Every morning, this link will be updated with Mr.Mahan and Mr. Berkshire's morning message. This document is a script for the message that is read over the P.A. system to all students each morning. You can access the document by going to our website (greenvillecsd.org), and selecting "GES" from the white menu bar at the top of the page. From there, "Principal's Morning Message" is listed on the maroon navigation bar. Or, you can use the link in the pinned post on our Facebook page. The link stays the same, but the content is updated daily. Feel free to bookmark this page on your phone or computer. Here's the link...check it out! https://docs.google.com/.../15IXyPwRa8HQfkbgBb8Xcjpm.../edit

The 1,000 Book Club Program is back at Scott M. Ellis Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year! This is a free book program for Pre-K and Kindergarten students. In conjunction with parents and volunteers, our youngest students will have the opportunity to gain essential literacy skills and a love of reading. Families can sign their students up by filling out a registration form. HOW IT WORKS Sign your Pre-K or Kindergarten student up by filling out the registration form. Once registered, students will be given one tote bag filled with 10 books each week. When they finish reading that bag of books, they will return it in exchange for a new bag and continue on to read 1,000 books - 10 books at a time. Bags will be exchanged on Tuesdays each week. This program runs all year, and upon completion, students will receive recognition, a t-shirt, and a certificate. Interested in volunteering on Tuesday mornings? Get in touch, we’re always looking for volunteers! If you have any questions about the program, please email Diane Carl at carld@greenvillecsd.org or Maragret Robertson at robertsonm@greenvillecsd.org. Please include “1,000 Book Program” in the subject of your email.

Our Board of Education President, Tracy Young, talked about a recent New York Times article that asked "What is school for?" during our September Superintendent's Conference. In the opinion piece, 12 reasons why schools exist are given. Responses ranged from "School is for Learning to Read" to "School is for Teaching." Today, we'd like to add lucky number 13 to that list. Among many other things, here at Greenville, school is for making memories. Photo by Audrey Matott.
