Swainsboro Primary School has been bustling with business recently. From awarding coloring contest winners to welcoming visitors to collecting donations for a good cause, the institution on Tiger Trail reserved for the youngest Swainsboro students in the district has been busy since mid-month.
On November 10, representatives from East Georgia State College visited the primary school and recognized the winners of a coloring contest. Ashley Williams took first place, Madalyn Burke finished second, and Charles Riner earned third. Each of these students received a prize bag, and because Williams was the overall winner, her class was treated to an ice cream party. Akira Sutton and Madison Wimberly made the presentation on behalf of the college.
Two days later, on November 12, Franklin Memorial Library personnel visited SPS and put on a Thanksgiving puppet show. They concluded their time at the school with a storytelling session, then donated classroom books to each teacher’s class library.
On November 17, members of Swainsboro First United Methodist Church visited the school and donated several turkeys to families ahead of Thanksgiving.
On November 19, Amy Sconyers and Lisa Faircloth’s classes were named the winners of a coloring contest by CM City. Students in these two classes were given a certificate and goody bags for the achievement.
Finally, on Monday, the school culminated its canned food drive and determined the classes that contributed the most amount of goods to the cause.
Denni Delinski’s second grade class collected a total of 998 cans, Macy Fagler’s first grade class added another 852 cans, and Heather Canady’s first grade class brought a total of 700 cans. For this accomplishment, each class will be rewarded with a party of their choice.
Altogether, Swainsboro Primary collected 6,677 canned goods, which will be dispersed to families within the community.
Additionally, Swainsboro Primary has celebrated various students for hitting their 1,000 sight words goal. For the month of November, these students include: Mylee Weber of Leah Frye’s class as well as Krissy’Ann Carswell and Jacob Griffin in Delinski’s class.
