    The GATAS students at Hodges Elementary School/GSI in Mrs. Hamlett's class have been learning about our amazing brain. On Wednesday, October 17th the students had a local neurosurgeon to come as a guest speaker to share his knowledge about the brain. Dr. Greg McLoughlin is a neurosurgeon who works in Greenwood. He shared with the GATAS students facts and information about the brain. Students learned about the parts of the brain, the lobes, neurons, and famous individuals associated with our understanding of how our brain works. After his presentation, students were allowed to ask all of their "wondering" questions about the brain.

    Congratulations to our very own, Ms. Polly Henderson, for being nominated as FSI Office Teacher of the Week! Please take a moment and a vote for her. The voting will run until Tuesday, October 16th.  Click here to vote.

    Mrs. Henderson's nomination entry is below. 


    "My child was kept at home until it was time for K5. Mrs. Henderson is our very first teacher and we are in love with her. The way she cares for the children is heartwarming and so sincere. It is obvious that she loves each child in a special way and they all love her. I was nervous about my child going to school but all of that went away the very first time I met Mrs. Henderson. She gave me a hug and her cell phone number and her kind words reassured me that everything would be fine. She is such a FUN teacher. The kids dance and sing and my son always has an exciting story to tell. I also appreciate the way she communicates with the parents. Whenever I get a call or text from her I feel like its from a long time friend. She lets us know what's going on in class, she checked on my son when he was out sick, she sent me pictures from the field trip they went on...all of those little things mean so so much. The only thing that makes me sad is knowing that she won't be our teacher forever. I would take her to every grade, every school if I could. Mrs. Henderson is supportive, passionate, caring, peaceful. In one word, awesome. Thank you for considering her for this award. She truly deserves it."

    The release of the new report cards, originally scheduled for November 15, has been postponed. The South Carolina Department of Education has tentatively set November 29 as the new public release date. Please take a few minutes to review the School Report Card Guide prior to the release. These report cards will be the first cards issued under an accountability system that meets the mandates of both state and federal accountability. Ten key areas are measured on the report cards.

    Garden Grant with Clemson Extension

    This year, some of our second and fourth-grade honeybees are participating in a gardening grant in conjunction with the Clemson Extension. As part of the grant, students and teachers will build planters to plant and maintain various crops throughout the school year. Once crops are harvested, students will be able to enjoy the food they have worked hard to grow. Our honeybees are eager to learn all about gardening and nutrition through this adventure.
