Fundraiser – Jump Rope for Heart

Torrence Creek is participating in Jump Rope for Heart throughout the month of February. It is centered around students jump roping, learning how to keep their hearts and bodies healthy, and fundraising for the American Heart Association. We will be finishing the month off with a Jump Day at the end of February. Fundraising information and envelopes for this cause will be going home in Thursday Folders. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the American Heart Association. If you have any questions, contact Coach Wood.

Winter SWAG Club Begins

We are proud to announce our 2nd session of S W A G, Students With A Goal, beginning February 5. We are looking forward to another great session introducing NEW and exciting ways students can help others. With completely different activities and charities each session, students will get a feel for entirely new needs of our community each time they enroll. When enrolled in SWAG, students will not only be helping others, but will be educated on what it means to be the one in need. Students will role play and put themselves in the shoes of those they intend to help, discuss what they might need and formulate a plan of action. While SWAG may facilitate a collection drive of some sort, the intention is not for the Club to be solely about collecting donations. We want the students to be involved in the giving through making gifts, writing letters, creating posters and other hands on projects.
SWAG Club is open to first – fifth graders, but space is limited. The club will meet once a week on Thursdays 3:15 – 4:15 running Feb. 5 – March 5 and is being facilitated by first grade teacher, Mrs. Whisenant and third grade parent, Cindy Cooper.. Students will receive flyers detailing this information in their Thursday folders. Enrollment for the club is $25 per student, regardless if they were enrolled in a previous session. This money will go toward project materials and a club t shirt. If interested in joining, students are asked to return their permission slip and send in their registration money by JAN 25. Checks should be made payable to Lorri Whisenant. The first SWAG meeting will be Thursday
February 5 in rm A8 at 3:15. 
Feel free to contact Cindy Cooper coopercouple@bellsouth.net or Lorri Whisenant if you have any questions.
