Rock Hill School News For Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012

From Elaine T. Baker, Director of Information Services:

Recycling Off to a Great Start
During the first month of the district's recycling program, 31 tons or 61,460 pounds of recyclables were collected. And, better yet, our schools are receiving money from Rock Hill from the sales of recyclables! Congratulations to all schools but especially those at the top: India Hook ElementarySullivan Middle, and Rock Hill High.  
Attention Northwestern Alumni Educators
Northwestern High School is looking for educators in Rock Hill Schools who graduated from high school as a Northwestern Trojan.
Festival Merit Winners
Congratulations to Dr. Winslow and Glenda Schock who were nominated by Supt. Lynn Moody last fall and named this week as one of six Community Service Merit Award winners by the Come-See-Me Festival Board of Governors. Dr. Winslow and Glenda are co-founders of the annual "Cheer for Children" event, and both have been instrumental in providing books, clothing and other items to many of our schools for children in need.

Congratulations to Martha Compton, a special education teacher, who was selected February 21 by the S. C. Council for Exceptional Children as its 2012 South Carolina Advocate of the Year. The award recognizes a legislator, parent or other individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of exceptional children and youth. 
"Spoonful of Kisses"
Hats off to Krystie James' kindergarten class and Kaleena Gibson's third graders who recently raised $540 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by selling 1,080 chocolate kisses in pairs to fellow classmates, parents and members of the Belleview faculty and staff. The children learned how to work together, improved their math skills by counting the proceeds and tried out their "salesmanship" skills, all while learning about the importance of caring for others.
Spring Cleaning
Residents of York County are invited to participate in "spring cleaning" events, beginning this Saturday, March 3, with the disposal of household hazardous materials.
