Bryan Elementary School partners with Southside Christian School in South Carolina
Southside Christian School (SCS) in South Carolina partnered with Bryan Elementary School by visiting with gifts to be used during testing. The entourage from SCS arrived at Bryan in a chartered bus to deliver 500 bottles of water, over 100 bottles of Gatorade, and a generous supply of snacks for testing and end-of-the year celebrations. They also delivered personalized notes and gifts locked up with a combination lock for each fifth grade Bryan Patriot. The combination lock was for practice to aid in the smooth transition to middle school.
As SCS eight graders showed giving, Bryan displayed gratitude through a donation of 12 books for the SCS elementary library, a certificate of appreciation for the school, and personalized thank you cards to each student. Helema Vandivier, family engagement specialist, said it was a powerful and positive experience.
“Many of the SCS students indicated that the service project was the best part of their trip,” said Jason with Orange Sky Travel.
“It was a very special experience and I know it had an impact on my personal children, as well,” said Kara Hart, Bryan school counselor.
