York Road Recognized for School Service
Congratulations to York Road Elementary School on being recognized at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Charlotte awards reception on June 18 for raising $2,000 for JDRF. Teacher Gemeta Anderson and floater assistant Phyllis Doherty accepted the award at the McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square.
Teaching in China
India Hook Elementary teachers Stacy Bunchman (grade 1) and Heather Rollings (grade 4) and Principal Crystal Guyton are now in China teaching Chinese students in two classrooms that they've set up that are similar to those at India Hook. Jennie Rakestraw, Dean of the Richard W. Riley School of Education at Winthrop, is a member of a professional organization where she learned about a group of Chinese educators who wanted to duplicate a U.S. high performing elementary school in Beijing.  Dr. Rakestraw recommended a number of our schools, and India Hook was chosen. Heather has written a wonderful blog on their experiences.    Click here to view.
