As a faculty we will review your com-ments and use them to help us plan for the remainder of the 2011-2012 school year and the upcoming 2012-2013 school year.Best wishes for good health, happiness and success in 2012.Sincerely, Nancy Coleman
2011-2012 Spirit Fund Annual Giving Campaign
Due to the diligence of our Spirit Fund Board, the 2011-2012 campaign is well underway. The Spirit Fund hasreceived over $25,000 as of January 3, 2012. This fall, First Citi-zens Bank Foundation donated $5000.00 to the school to purchaseseveral grade levels of the software program, Odyssey, published by Compass Learning. In November, the Kyle Foundation, locatedin Florence, South Carolina gave the school $3000.00 to purchasean additional grade level of Odyssey software.Since 1994
 parents, grandparents, friends, corporations and foun-dations have given over $1,100,000.00 to the Spirit Fund AnnualGiving Campaign. Because of contributions to past Spirit Fundcampaigns, the school was able to build our science building, re-carpet school hallways and classrooms, refurbish and air-conditionour gymnasium, upgrade our technology, and improve our learn-ing environment in countless other ways.During the 2010-2011 year, the Spirit Fund raised $74,074.00. It is particularly gratifying to note that Richard Winn achieved this featduring a prolonged downturn in the economy. Please consider contributing to this year’s campaign to help us meet or exceed lastyear’s donations. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. All giftsare tax-deductible.
