Schools Helping Schools
Donated items being accepted to help North Central High School which was devastated by a tornado last week. Information and details below:
Not sure if you heard not only did Loris deal with a tornado, but another school in our state also was pretty much destroyed from a tornado last weekend. North Central High. They are fortunate that their county had a vocational building that they are going to be using the rest of the semester, but they are now having to be bussed about 30 minutes each day for this. Teachers tried to get as much from their classrooms as possible, but are practically starting from scratch. So being the Sharks that we are we are going to do a quick donation drive next week to send what we can. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week we will have trash cans set up at each entrance for donations to be placed. If someone misses the trash cans then they can also bring any donations to the Guidance Department.
Here is the list of their immediate needs:
1.5-2 inch binders
12 & 24 inch rulers
dry erase boards, individual-sized
power strip surge protectors (new)
storage - plastic rolling drawers or large 3-drawer storage containers

School Improvement Council of St. James High named to SC-SIC Honor Roll
St. James High’s School Improvement Council has been named to the South Carolina-School Improvement Councils (SC-SICs) 2020 Honor Roll for their significant efforts to foster civic engagement in public education. The school’s SIC is one of 10 in the state that will continue in the running for the annual Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence. From the 10 Honor Roll SICs, five finalists will be selected in March. The winner of the Riley Award for SIC Excellence will be announced on April 4 at the 2020 SC-SIC Annual Meeting in Columbia.
Now in its 19th year, the award is named for the former US Secretary of Education and South Carolina Governor and his late wife, and recognizes the vital contributions made by more than 1,100 local SICs and their nearly 13,000 SIC members across the state.
SICs were established in state law over 40 years ago. A founding partner of the Center for Educational Partnerships within the University of South Carolina College of Education, the SC-SIC provides training, technical assistance, statutory accountability, and other operational resources necessary for the continued success of the community-based SICs in each of South Carolina’s K-12 public schools.
More information on SC-SIC, the Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence, and award winners from previous years can be found online at www.sic.sc.gov.
