Rock Hill School District News For Thursday, January 31, 2013 #rockhillschools #rockhill

Congratulations to . . .
Mount Gallant Elementary on its selection as a 2013 S.C. School of Character and now a nominee for National School of Character status. The announcement, made Jan. 30 by the Palmetto Character Council, stated that onlythree schools were selected this year, and that it was rare for a school (Mt. Gallant) to be selected the first time it applied. Hats off to the Mt. Gallant staff, especially Gail Abernethy, school counselor, who wrote and submitted the application.
Community Garden
When Rock Hill Schools was in the process of choosing a new food service provider, the topic of school gardens came up. These would be gardens that would be maintained by students, the district and community volunteers and where healthy food would be planted and cultivated on property adjoining the Applied Technology Center. The first "garden bed" will be planted this Friday, Feb. 1, rain or shine, at 10:15 by students at the ATC and community volunteers. A 4:00 p.m. session will be open to those who cannot attend during school hours. Dr. Martha Edwards, a local pediatrician and volunteer at the Family Resource Center, will join ATC Director Don Gillman as the contacts for this project.  
National Board Workshop
For employees interested in National Board, please go to website or call 803.256-2065 about a workshop on Feb. 9 in Columbia. This workshop is for teachers who are thinking about or currently renewing their National Board Certification.
ATC Fundraising Efforts
