Friends and PTA Fall/Winter Update

As we wrap up the beginning of 2011 with a month of school that seemed to have more ”days off” than “days in” and snow too – parents and students are trying to get back in gear!

We want to share some exciting events coming up at SIES: 

Alice in Wonderland at SIES 1/25 and 1/27 at 6:30 in the cafeteria at SIES.  The performances are always top notch, Broadway caliber and funded partially through donations to Friends and PTA so please if you like what you see – support your school with a donation or consider a Musical Sponsorship for next year.

The 2011 Musical Sponsor is The Rabin Family. Through their ownership of Andolini’s and Juanita Greenberg’s they sponsored this wonderful production. Many thanks to the Rabin Family for their support of the musical this year and their dedication to SIES.

Mark your calendar – SIES Make a Splash Bash sponsored by SCBT is coming soon! February 26, 2011 at the Windjammer, Isle of Palms. Tickets on sale soon.   This is truly a can’t miss SIES event, Live and Silent auction, Dancing and Fun!  If you would like to donate an auction item or have questions about the event or want to volunteer on the committee please email Lucie McLaughlin, Splash Bash Chairperson at

We want to thank you, the SIES community, for the wonderful energy and efforts that have helped move SIES forward this school year.  It is with your help and support we have accomplished alot and we are only half way through the year! 1. Fall Fest was a great start to the year and our event leader, Stephanie Conley was wonderful. 2. Our SIES Innisbrook sale was our most successful ever and the volunteer leader, Susan Gourdin did an amazing job from beginning to end. We raised over $12k for SIES and just received a check for the Internet sales last week another $1,500.  3. Volunteers – our SIES volunteers have really lifted a burden off the staff by helping with office duties, copying, classroom help and so much more.  Thank you! Please make sure to show up to your shifts and assignments or find a replacement!  Melissa Kelly has led the Volunteers this year and she has done a wonderful job. 5. E-Wave – Kathy Bolles Beard and Susan Hill Smith have worked very hard to make these informative and timely. Our thanks to them as well.  6. Our Directory - Chrissy Lorenz led the super successful directory efforts this year building on last year and it will be even better in 2011-2012!
