Kinard First Grade students visited the York County Animal control to take on a truly exciting and groundbreaking service project. They are helping socialize animals at the animal shelter by reading to them. We are happy to report that since our visit yesterday 10 animals have been adopted. Our students are learning to be wonderful contributors to their community and society. We are a Lighthouse School leading our students to Greatness.
Kinard congratulates Ms. Lauren Demarest, Grade 1 Teacher, who was voted Kinard's Teacher of the Year for 2016-2017. Well done Ms. Demarest for your dedication, hard work, and care of our students. We are so proud of you for Focusing Resources on Gaining Success (FROGS).
Kinard is so proud of our Principal, Ms. Kathy Weathers! On Friday she won the coveted "Administrator with Heart 2014-15" award presented by the South Carolina Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance in partnership with the American Heart Association for her support and leadership in promoting heart healthy lifestyle events for her students, faculty, and community. There were over 150 entries submitted, and she was one of ten finalists and won after a panel reviewed the nomination. Mrs. Weather's dedication to her school family is the perfect example of leadership that is contagious to all Kinard Elementary School students. You own it Ms. Weathers!
