Week 29 of the 2023-2024 School Year

This was a quick week! Two days FLEW by! I hope everyone is ready for Spring Break- it begins tomorrow. I have attached another copy of the calendar in case you are wondering when it ends :) 

Happy Autism Acceptance Month! Students in Mr. Paul's World History class were treated to a great presentation by Vivienne regarding the history of Autism Spectrum Disorder. It was wonderful!

The Middle School students are hard at work on their Rube Goldberg machines in science class and their 5 paragraph essays in English. I got to "be" Dr. Nicole today and I was so impressed with the work happening in those classes! 

If your students are bored over Spring Break, ask them to collect change! We are going to do a "Chunk your Change" event after Spring Break. (Date TBD)

TCS Yard Sale date: May 17th and 18th

You may bring items to donate on the 16th at pick-up. All proceeds will go to the Activities Fund to help pay for class trips and activities. 

Looking for some fun volunteer work? Check out the information below:

Friday, April 5th

Thursday, July 18th

Friday, August 2nd  

11AM - 2PM

Parris Island Boat Ramp (off-base)

21 Marina Blvd Beaufort, SC 29902

Registration is required

Should we need to cancel due to weather, an email will be sent the evening prior to the event. If registration is full, please send me an email at and I will put you on the waitlist. If you need to back out before the event, please let me know, so I can fill your spot.


What to expect

While reef builds are a blast, they are labor intensive! Expect to get muddy and wet, be in the sun, and get some exercise. Volunteers should be capable of and enjoy working in soft pluff mud while lifting and passing up to 40-pound bags of oyster shell and wire cages.


We will meet at the Parris Island Boat Ramp (off-base) located at 21 Marina Blvd to sign volunteer waivers, meet SCDNR’s oyster restoration crew, learn about the importance of oyster reefs to our coastal environment, and hear the game plan for the day. Following the briefing, we will load the material onto the boats and head out to the site for the restoration.


What to wear/bring 

  • Closed-toe shoes. Rainboots/muck boots are recommended. If you do not have boots, old sneakers will work. No sandals!

  • Clothes you don’t mind getting muddy or stained

  • Hat

  • Sunscreen

  • Reusable water bottle – there will be a water cooler to refill.

  • I recommend leaving a set of clean clothes in your car to change into after the build.
