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. 


 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.
