Students With A Goal (SWAG)

  Teachers Sara Serne and Diana Smith led the organization of the 2-day SWAG (Students With A Goal) event.   Our Juniors in the 2013-14 school year were challenged to achieved scores above the State average on their ACT tests. Those students who achieved a score higher than the State average, would not have to take 2nd semester final exams.  That meant that the Juniors not taking exams no longer had to participate in reviews, so there were two additional days of non-instruction for them.  SWAG was created to allow students to plan and execute some service learning activities during the two day prior to exams.  For the 2014-15 school year Cathy Cooper (3rd Grade) jumped on board to allow her students to participate.  Connie Hamilton was able to secure some grants and the students spent 2nd semester planning. 
  The results were overwhelming.  Tied-dyed shirts made for the students, a mural painted at the elementary, bird houses built and placed at the nature park, 9-square and 4 square equipment made, care packages for Saranac high school alumni who are in the armed services  and most importantly, relationships developed and a sense of pride and accomplishment by all involved.

Destination Imagination Team

 Many of you may have already heard but we wanted to be sure to pass on to everyone the exciting news that our High School Destination Imagination team has made it to Globals.  This is the first time a Saranac team has ever made it to this level of competition.  The students on this team are:  Isaac Hooker, Julianna & Audra Hawkins, Laensa Dibaba and Bethany Steele.  Their team manager is Lisa Hooker and April Steele is our D.I. Coordinator.  

Globals competition is in Knoxville, TN at the University of Tennessee, May 20-23. 

Saranac has been doing Destination Imagination (formerly Odyssey of the Mind) for just around 30 years.  This is a pretty historical and exciting accomplishment for our students, our school and our community.  If you see these students around the school (they will be practicing a lot these next few weeks - in the Multi-purpose room at the Elem. school) congratulate them on a fantastic job.  We are very proud of them.

We are also busy fundraising to go to Globals.  It will cost approximately $5,000.00 to get our team there for the 4 days of competition.  You will be hearing about some of their upcoming fundraisers, but we also want everyone interested to know that we are seeking sponsorships for our team.  We will be putting an article in the Sentinel Standard, Shopper's Guide and Focal Point to recognize our sponsors.  Bronze Level - $50.00+, Silver Level - $100.00+, Gold Level $250.00+, and Platinum Level $500.00+

If you would like to be a sponsor, checks can be made out to Saranac Community Schools (put Destination Imagination or D.I. in the memo) and submitted to any of the school offices. Thank you for your encouragement and support.
