As the school year is closing out we are looking to the new year and establishing our PTF volunteer base. There are several committee positions available for the 2017-18 school year; Middle School Liaison, Middle School Volunteer Coordinator, Middle School Events Coordinator and Middle School Staff Appreciation Coordinator. We are also looking to expand our volunteer base so if you are interested in helping out but not wanting to be a coordinator we would love to have your contact information. Please email Amy Pearce at [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering for the 2017-18 school year.

Girl Scout News
Four of our own – SCPS Troop 30027 were present to receive the Girl Scout Bronze Award on Sunday, May 7th at the Girl Scout High Awards Ceremony at the Elks Lodge in Savannah. Many other Girl Scouts and Troops from the surrounding area also were present to receive their High Awards.
The Bronze Award is the Highest Award a Junior Level Girl Scout can earn for a community service project. Troop 30027 implemented a crayon and marker recycling program for the SCPS Lower School and some of the Daycare classrooms.

Since the crayon and marker recycling program has been implemented, Tessa, Nora and Sydnee have since “Bridged” to the Girl Scout Cadette Level. Ann will Bridge to the Cadette Level at the end of this school year. All four girls this Fall will be brainstorming on their Silver Award – the Highest Award a Cadette Level Girl Scout can earn.
