YOU'RE INVITED! Come observe a GOOD NEWS CLUB and see if it's something you would like to help out with. Good News Club is an after school ministry outreach of local churches that takes place at the school. Volunteers are always needed, and there are many roles --- not just teaching. Club meets Mondays after school until 4:15. Sponsored by Middleton Road Baptist and Flat Rock Presbyterian. For more info, contact Laura King 864-245-1700 (call/text).
Anderson School District Three is holding a fundraiser for the March of Dimes.

Please add $1 for each X added to the size after XL. All proceeds from the shirt sale will be given to the March of Dimes. Wear your shirt and join faculty from Anderson Three at the March of Dimes walk on April 27, 2019.
This week was #employeeappreciation and the district office would like to say THANK YOU to our amazing employees! Anderson 3 would not be the same without the dedicated faculty and staff that work tirelessly to ensure our students receive the best possible education. We hope you enjoyed the BBQ lunch!
Good Hope Presbyterian Church recently donated $533.00 to the Weekend Snackpack Program. This donation was matched by an anonymous donor and will benefit the students of Flat Rock and Iva Elementary! Starr Baptist Church also supplies approximately 20 snackpacks each week to the students of Starr Elementary. Anderson Three is blessed and truly thankful for the love and support of our schools from the Starr and Iva communities.
Please remember as we celebrate Valentine's Day next week that Flat Rock Elementary will not accept deliveries to the school for any students. Students will be allowed to share snacks and cards with their classroom friends.
Because our family STEAM night has been cancelled for tomorrow night, the book fair will be open to students all day tomorrow, Tuesday, February 5th. Tomorrow is the last day of the book fair.
Due to large numbers of sickness, Flat Rock Elementary will not have our family STEAM night on Tuesday, February 5th. Thank you for your understanding. We want to keep our students and families healthy during this season.
