Rock Hill School News For January 27, 2010

To raise money to support the International Red Cross Haitian Earthquake 2010 Relief Fund, India Hook Elementary will sponsor "Mateys for Haiti." To participate, students and staff will pay 50 cents (each time) to wear a crazy hat on Feb. 3, model crazy hair on Feb. 10, and wear wild socks on Feb. 17. The classroom that donates the most money "percentage-wise" will be awarded a special “pirate plaque” for their generosity.

India Hook is issuing a challenge to all schools to participate in a similar project to see which school has the most generous spirit!

The Choral Dept. at South Pointe High School has entered into a partnership with Soles4Souls™ Inc. through Feb. 15. The charity, which gives away a pair of shoes to someone in need every nine seconds, has attracted choral students to raise critical funds for Soles4Souls which will, in turn, contribute funds toward choral programs at South Pointe.

It’s the perfect harmony of community service and fundraising. The entire campaign will be for shoes for those affected in Haiti.” Students are now collecting monetary donations from family, friends, teachers and neighbors for the purchase of new Soles4Souls clogs or flip-flops. The shoes will be shipped directly to people in need.

To contribute, contact Beverly Laney at 980-2172. Donations can also be made

Students will learn what each worker needs to do to obtain, perform, and keep their perspective job.
