Rock Hill Schools Information for Thursday, September 18

Back the Pack to Get Under Way Oct. 3

When the school board meets Sept. 22, members will hear about one of the most heartwarming projects the district has undertaken in recent years—providing food for the many children who leave our schools on Friday and return on Monday without having much to eat over the weekend. Titled "Back the Pack," and sponsored by the Rock Hill School District Education Foundation, the goal is to provide a number of children (identified by their schools) with a special back pack filled with nutritious food that they'll receive as they leave school on Friday. Serena Williams, coordinator of community services, will oversee the program with Sue Kutz, a community volunteer.


A donation of $12 will feed one student for a month.

Imagination Library Kick Off a Success

Cindy Hunt, coordinator of ParentSmart, wants to thank everyone who helped publicize the Dolly Parton Imagination Library kick-off on Sept. 12. "It was a huge success," Cindy states. "We signed up over 250 children between the ages of birth and five who will receive free books monthly, and 1789 children were registered in York County." 

Supt. to Hold Community Coffee Hours

Dr. Lynn Moody will hold monthly coffee hours the first Wednesday morning of each month from 7:30-9:00, beginning Oct. 1 at Durango Bagel. Dr. Moody will be accompanied occasionally by school board members and members of her Cabinet.

Awards and Honors

¡The Northside Arts Troupe will perform tonight (9/18) at six o'clock in the N.C. Blumenthal Performing Arts Center for the Corporate Partners of the Education Institute. Last spring, the Troupe performed at the Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington, D.C.

¡Pam Bernard, a second-grade teacher at Mount Holly Elementary, received a grant from Cargill, Inc., on September 12 in the amount of $1,000. Pam will use the money to purchase reading materials for her classroom.
