Kinard student Art Work has been shining at the Arts Council of York County in Rock Hill this past week. Our students, under the guidance of Ms. Lowman, created beautiful artwork as part of The Disappearing Frogs Project which brings awareness to the decline/disappearance of frogs and amphibians and inspires people to take personal action to protect our environment. We are so proud of our Kinard students!
Ms. Hubbard was awarded her grant for "One Page at a Time". This grant provides supplemental books for students in grades K-2. She will be able to buy leveled guided reading books through Scholastic in subjects such as biographies, weather, seasons, history, literary elements, and poetry. Ms. Cato's grant was for "Family Literacy Packs". Her grant enables students to choose one literacy pack of books to take home and share with their families each week, and students will have the opportunity to earn a personal book while creating the habit of family literacy time and becoming stronger readers.
The South Carolina Education Association AND Cat in the Hat visited Kinard this morning to talk about the importance of reading. Clover mayor Mr. Donnie Grice even read a story to the students. All students in PK-2 were given a Dr. Suess book and a goodie bag from the SCEA.
