Future architects of America
The four-year-old kindergarten students have been exploring their design and architectural interest! Students created marshmallow and toothpick structures as part of a construction unit. It is never too young to lay the seeds that may someday create the next Frank Lloyd Wright.
2011 Conservation Teacher of the Year
Congratulations to Jody Childs, P. E. instructor at Slater-Marietta Elementary. Childs has been very involved in working with students during an after-school Science Club and other outside groups. He has also secured several grants which have benefited the students, the school and the community.
Because of his commitment to teaching elementary school students the importance of conserving and protecting our state’s natural resources, his initiative in the “Trout in the Classroom” program, the “Play in the Shade” program, the “Carolina Fence Garden” project, and involvement with the Environmental Education Association of SC and the SC Wildlife Federation, Childs is being honored as the 2011 Conservation Teacher of the Year by the Board of Commissioners of the Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District. He will be recognized at their May 5 awards banquet.
Local author visits third grade students
Local resident and author, Debbie Stewart, visited third grade students at Slater-Marietta Elementary. She read a chapter from her book, “The Adventures of the Valley Dogs.” The Valley Dogs have super powers and the book tells stories of their adventures in and around The Cliffs Valley properties. This was Stewart’s first book and was special because her daughter-in-law did the illustrations. Stewart’s goal is to inspire students to become authors and illustrators.
