Stay up to date with Charleston County School District news

  • Monday, January 14, 2013

The Charleston County School District’s Dec. 10 board meeting included a couple of East Cooper-related news items.
The meeting began with a moment of silence and recognition for the late Dr. Maria Goodloe-Johnson, who was a former CCSD superintendent. Goodloe-Johnson passed away earlier this month after battling lung cancer.
The community gathered at Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in North Charleston this past Friday for a tribute.
 
"Happy Feet”
Clara Heinsohn, director of Public Affairs and Volunteers, recognized Rotary District 7770 Governor Elect Lou Mello and the Mount Pleasant Rotary Club for their efforts with the “Happy Feet” program.
Mount Pleasant Rotary Club and East Cooper Breakfast Rotary team up for the program by buying new shoes from Target retail stores at discounted prices. The shoe purchases are paid for through fundraising.
Beneficiaries of the “Happy Feet” program are fitted in-store and given the shoes at no cost. Members of the Wando High School Interact Club also volunteer during the event.
 
SIES approval
The district school board voted 8-to-1 in favor of an architectural design for Sullivan’s Island Elementary School.
With the approval, CCSD can now join a contract “to provide architectural services for SIES completion of design,” according to Jason Sarkan, spokesperson for the district, in a news release.
In other Sullivan’s Island-related news, the town held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the reopening of the basketball and tennis court at J. Marshall Stith Park, Dec. 7. It is located at 2050 Middle Street.
