All Cherokee County Schools will be closed on Friday, February 27, 2015.
Celebrate National School Breakfast Week with us March 2-March 6! This year’s theme is “Make the Grade with School Breakfast”. Studies have shown that eating a healthy breakfast decreases absences, contributes to fewer visits to the school nurse, increases test scores, and results in fewer discipline issues. Our cafeterias offer healthy hot meals each morning as well as a cereal option so that our students have the opportunity to begin their day with breakfast. Encourage your children to take part in the school breakfast program. It is a great time-saver for busy parents and also allows children to have breakfast with friends and classmates.
For school breakfast week, we have compiled a menu of student favorites and will be serving “Brunch for Lunch” to celebrate breakfast with some of our most popular items. Students who eat breakfast will also receive a special token each day in commemoration of National School Breakfast Week. Items will include bracelets, stickers, and bookmarks. Celebrate with us as we recognize the importance of a healthy breakfast to your child’s overall health and as a useful tool that contributes to their success in school!
Energy is one of the District’s most rapidly rising operating expenses. As the organization faces the challenges of increased expectations and in some instances reduced funding, energy management is a necessity. To this end, we have partnered with Cenergistic to assist us in reducing our consumption of energy, allowing us to invest those savings into more important priorities.
Cenergistic is searching for the best person possible to lead a comprehensive, energy conservation program for our organization. We need someone who is passionate about using their communication skills to reduce our energy bills so those dollars can be used for a much better purpose – whether it is hiring new staff or just reducing overhead.
If you are or someone you know is interested in making a difference for Cherokee County Schools and its community through energy conservation, we encourage you to inquire about the open Energy Specialist position. Cenergistic will be hosting an Information Session on Wednesday, January 28 at 4:15 PM in the Central Office board room. Please click here for more information.
Interested applicants should apply with cover letter and resume at Cenergistic Careers by January 30, 2015.
