As part of The Dictionary Project, Rotary Club of Savannah donated approximately 300 dictionaries to students in our county this week. Blake Dycus, our New Generations Committee Chair and his team distributed to each student in the 6 third grade classes; this was 5 public schools as well as SCA. A donation of dictionaries was also made to Sheltering Tree, New Beginnings and The Hardin County Public Library. Through this project we hope to encourage active readers and promote good writers. Thank you Blake and Savannah Rotarians for a job well done! Click here to view a picture of Blake visiting with our 3rd graders.

Parris South students "blow cancer away." September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. We are a proud supporter of Team Aaron and St. Jude Research Hospital. Aaron Bell attended Parris South and his mother, Kristie, is the school's librarian. Aaron lost his battle with a brain tumor, but we continue to honor him by bringing awareness and supporting research through St. Jude that will bring better treatments and provide better outcomes for pediatric cancer patients.

This year, we began with the end in mind by celebrating leadership with a kick-off event. Students participated in 7 Habits chants, we introduced our school-wide WIGS, and teachers showed their sharpen the saw skills by performing the "Whip/Nae Nae" for students. We are really excited about Leadership! Click here to view pictures from the day.
