Mark your calendars for the Dodge ball for Heart Tournament on November 25, 2014 during related arts time. This tournament is being played to help raise money for the American Heart Association. The money raised from this tournament will be given back to children, communities and schools through American heart Association programs, including:
- Ongoing discovery of new treatments through research
- Advocating at federal and state levels for physical education and nutrition wellness in schools
- Training courses for middle and high school students in CPR.
As an incentive to get students to raise money beyond “just paying to play,” the homeroom that raises the most will receive a pizza party at a later date.
Thank you for participating in our Angel Tree project sponsored by the F.O.R. Club this year! Remember, gifts need to be new items- wrapped with the angel taped on the outside of the package or inside the gift bag. All gifts must be returned to school no later than Friday, December 5th. If you are unable to purchase a gift, please return the angel to a F.O.R. Club member as soon as possible. Thanks again for putting a smile on a child’s face this holiday season!
continue to “Refuse to Lose” Middle School sports. Five years ago, The Fort Mill School Board of Education was faced with severe budget cuts. Decisions were made to cut a variety of programs, one of which was the funding of middle school sports. At that time, a group of parents made a presentation to the board to raise money through the school athletic booster clubs with fundraising and charging athletes to pay $100 per sport to play. The board agreed to allow that to happen. Five years later, we are still in need of raising over $10,000 each year to allow sports to be played at Fort Mill Middle School; therefore, community support is paramount and greatly appreciated.
