Community Support
As we head into this new and challenging school year, the community is reaching out to our schools in many ways.  Mr. Jim Null of Brevard recently came by the Ed Center and dropped off a brand-new Kindle Paperwhite and cover.  Dollar General Stores has offered a $5,000 donation to Brevard Elementary School for literacy efforts.  GO Grocery of Brevard is donating 300 masks to the schools.  A group of dedicated Connestee Falls residents led by a retired educator from Connecticut has already found donors for 4,000 masks (and counting) to support students and staff.  Child Nutrition expects to receive a donation of several thousand free individual bottles of Milo’s tea. This will help our middle and high schools bridge the gap on ordering a la carte items until we roll out the new digital ordering system in September.  Pastor Sisney of Brevard Community Church has offered labor and materials for cleaning, yard maintenance, and other assistance from the church family.  Dogwood Health Trust, a private grant-making foundation, donated money to each of the western region school systems to purchase large-scale screening devices and kiosks.  Each unit costs approximately $2300.  Our system will get eight units and we will purchase an additional four.  These new devices will facilitate temperature checks at a much faster rate and will be helpful as we move into flu season later on.
These are just a few examples of community backing that we know about—there are undoubtedly many more.  Our thanks to everyone for their generosity and support!
