In an effort to eliminate multiple booster meetings in the same week, CCHS is moving the School Improvement Council (SIC) meetings to the fourth Monday in each month. Meetings will still be held at 6 PM in room 4113. The first scheduled meeting will be held on September 26. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage new participants to join the SIC.
Elections will be held during our first meeting and nominations are currently being accepted. Nominations are open in each of the following categories: teachers, students, parents, and community members. Each category serves a two-year term. Nominations for Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary are also open. These serve a one-year term; however, state law does not place any limits on the number of times that elected members can run for re-election to the SIC.
Please take a few minutes to follow the following link into your browser and enter your nominations no later than September15 for the SIC: https://goo.gl/forms/K8ZtuSkBWCKEjWY32

Increase Fruits and Vegetables:Only 20% of high school students in our country report eating five servings of fruits and vegetables every day. It takes planning and trial and error to increase the fresh fruits and veggies your family eats, but you will see many benefits over time.
Eat Real Food: Over the past 30 years, the rates of childhood obesity have been increasing steadily. We have the opportunity to lower the amount of junk food our families are eating by increasing the amount of healthful, homemade meals and healthy snacks they consume.
Drop Liquid Calories: Today, we are drinking more sugary beverages than ever before. Most of these sugary beverages are consumed at home, so we as parents and as caregivers can have a direct impact on decreasing the amount of empty calories our families are consuming from these sweet drinks.
Wellness Mission Statement"Encourage best health practices for staff and students at Colleton County High School."
