Whether it was luck or intent when choosing our residence, there is no doubt that our students attend one of the best schools in the county...and in the entire state of Georgia. Big Creek Elementary was just named the number one public elementary school in the whole state by Niche. That is a huge honor!
One thing that helps us be such a fantastic school is parent support. With the funds that you contribute to PTO we are able to help the school with big purchases that aren't in the budget. In the past we have purchased science equipment, iPads, Chromebooks, tables, chairs, and so much more.
Our goal is to raise $30,000. Can you help us?
IT IS TIME FOR A FUNDRAISER!
HELP US RENOVATE THE BIG CREEK LIBRARY
Our goal in renovating the library is to create a 21st century media center that nurtures collaboration and hands on learning. In today’s learning environment students need to be able to:
- Collaborate on group work
- Receive support for BYOT from an instructional specialist
- Have access to a flexible environment
The components of this new type of 21st Century Media Center include:
- New bookcases to integrate with the new seating
- Seating which may be reconfigured easily for a variety of functions
- Collaboration space which supports both BYOT and school owned Chromebook, ensuring that everyone is successful in this environment
- Defined “rooms” within the space allowing for multiple activities to take place
Below are examples of the types of furniture we hope to fund through our Read-A-Thon fundraiser.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
