Ronald McDonald House!

A few students and parents were able to meet me at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) last week!  We took in our 6 containers of can tabs (1 more than last year!), baked cookies, and helped wipe down the eating area.  They showed us bracelets they made with colored can tabs to sell while all other tabs not used for that project are recycled.  The money they earn from recycling can tabs helps pay the bills at the house so that families can concentrate on other things.  We also took a tour of the house and got to see the 'home away from home' families get to experience when staying there.  We'll be collecting can tabs again next year, so start saving now! :)  Our local Greenville RMH just celebrated 30 years of helping families!  I look forward to sharing this opportunity with our new students and seeing all of our former students when they drop off their tabs next school year!



Ronald McDonald House is always looking for volunteers or donations!  They have an ongoing wish list for items needed in their pantry as well as daily opportunities to bake a sweet treat or prepare supper (or weekend brunch).  They recommend no more than 8 people in a group when preparing food due to space.  You can register to help on their website!

Summer Reading 2019

The Summer Reading program at my local library was one of my favorite summer activities growing up!  I loved picking out new books and using my very own library card to check them out.  Our Greer Library branch is still under construction, but the Taylors Library branch is just right down the road (and it has a great children's section!).  I hope you are finding time to read for pleasure and enjoying all of the new books you received at the end of school!  If you want to participate in Summer Reading Programs, you can play READO with CCE and participate in the Summer Reading Program with Greenville County Library System (they even have an adult category for Ms. Couch!).

Check out our CCE homepage for links to the READO board  Chandler Creek Elementary

Check out any branch of the Greenville Library System for the Summer Reading program or you can register online and print a gameboard here.

Happy Reading!
