Compiled by Elaine Baker, Rock Hill Schools District Office

Schools Plan Fundraisers to Save Lives

Sunset Park Elementary will hold a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on Friday, June 6, from 12:30-1:40 to raise money to support Zac Holford's ride across America. Zac, a friend of program teacher Cassie Cagle, is riding his bicycle 4,167 miles from S.C. to Oregon to raise awareness for the Society. Fourth-graders have planned fundraising efforts for all students at the school, and a number of faculty members have committed to riding their bikes to school on June 6.

Rock Hill High's "Bearcats 4 Life" is inviting district employees to participate in this year's Relay for Life, scheduled from 7:00 p.m.-7:00 a.m. May 30-31 at Winthrop's Belk Track. Employees can walk around the track in support of cancer survivors or they can help through donations to the American Cancer Society. There are many ways to pay tribute to a loved one or friend who's waging war with cancer or is a survivor, and Mary Page, team leader of Bearcats 4 Life, can provide that information.

Saluda Trail Middle School will have its spring festival, "IB Jammin'" from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Thursday, May 29. Great artwork will be on display, and performances by the bands, chorus, dance group, orchestra, and drama classes will certainly please the audience. Academic classes at all grade levels will display student work, and eighth-graders will have an open microphone poetry session.

Dominic Wren, head coach for the boys' soccer team at Northwestern, which won the 4A state championship on May 17,  has been named as the S.C. Soccer Coach of the Year.

Northside Elementary School of the Arts ranks No. 2 in the state, with students in grades 1, 2, and 3 placing first in math.

India Hook Elementary will have "Art Night" from 6:30-8:00 on Monday, June 2.

Rock Hill High will hold a baseball camp June 16-19 for boys and girls ages 9-13. The cost will be $60 for the first child and $55 for the second. For full details, contact Eddie Hill by calling 981-1300/329-5419.

Rock Hill High's Theatre Department, under the direction of Stephanie Daniel, will present the one-act play, Artistic Inspiration by Don Solidis, at 7:30 p.m. June 5. General admission will be $5 and tickets can be purchased at the door. This play was chosen at the Palmetto Dramatic Assn./S.C. Thespian Festival in February to represent S.C. at the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, NE, June 23-29.

Mark Yost, associate director of bands at Northwestern, reports that the Jazz Discovery Music Festival and Rock Hill Schools have been awarded $2,500+ from the Southern Arts Federation (SAF) for the 2009 jazz festival at Northwestern. This is the second year the festival has received funding from the SAF.
