District Three Information for 1-24

Compiled by Elaine Baker, District Three Communications Director

Gala Set for February 28
Thursday, Feb. 28, is the date and South Pointe will be the location for this year's Gala sponsored by the Rock Hill School District Foundation. The Gala will begin at 6:30 with a scruptious meal from Outback and topped off with entertainment by a number of student groups. Tickets, at $50, are now available from Serena Williams by calling 981-1006 or 980-2005. As always, proceeds from the Gala will be used to provide grants to teachers for innovative projects not covered by district or school funds.

          As a side note, the Foundation was recently approved as eligible to pursue United Way funding. This means that the Foundation has been designated as financially and programmatically sound as a nonprofit organization  and in a position to purse national-level funding for our schools.

<In celebration of the life of Martin Luther King, students at Old Pointe have made pinwheels and decorated them with symbols and words to express how they can make the world a better place. They will end their "Pinwheels and Parade" project on Jan. 25 around 10 a.m. when the students and staff view all the pinwheels, sing patriotic songs, listen to students read their related writings, and walk in front of the school in a Peace Walk.

<Richmond Drive will have a prom dress sale from 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Feb. 1. They will then have a yard sale from 8:00 a.m. until noon on Feb. 2. Proceeds from both sales will go toward funding a school track. (The yard sale will include only household goods and any remaining prom dresses.)

<Hats off to Chris Howle, Denise Ice, and JoAnn Keller, Senior Beta Club sponsors at South Pointe, who are really proud of the members of the Beta Club. Club members provided over 40 Christmas packages for students at the Central Child Dev. Center and presented the Center with a $400 donation to purchase equipment.

<You are invited to attend "Dessert Theatre" at 7:00 p.m. Feb. 11 at Northside Elementary School of the Arts. The Northside Arts Explorers will perform their musical extravaganza which will be showcased at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., in March. Proceeds from ticket sales ($5) will help with fundraising efforts for students traveling to Washington.

<Calling all bowlers! Junior Achievement of York County will sponsor a Bowl-a-Thon on Feb. 23 to support the JA programs in our district
