M.E. Lewis Elementary School to Sponsor Fundraising Activities to
Support New State-of-the- Art Playground
On Saturday, October 28, 2018, M.E. Lewis Elementary School had a booth at the 2018 Pine Tree Festival with the goal of raising funds and awareness of the #Play it Up Bullpups Campaign. The goal of the campaign is to raise money for a playground for the students of M.E. Lewis Elementary School. With the generous help and support of Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee, the M.E. Lewis Playground Project raised $440 through donations and three ticket raffle drawings of items donated; an Emerson Digital Thermostat, a lunch for 2 at Gaby’s (the Ritz-Carlton’s Reynolds Lake Oconee lakeside restaurant), and a limited-edition Atlanta Braves Yeti Cooler. Once again congratulations, to our three winners- Peggy Lewis, Mary Holsey, and Marben Bland. Thank you once again to everyone that stopped by, said hello, donated, and enjoyed the Ritz Carlton hot chocolate. A special thanks to Pre-K and Head Start for providing the tables and chairs on short notice. M.E. Lewis Elementary School would also like to give a huge thank you to the Pine Tree Festival Committee for being so accommodating; it was a true team effort of the Hancock County School District and community working collaboratively to support this effort.

Student Dress Code
Standards for student attire shall be established by the school system in grades K through 12. These standards will be included in the Student Code of Conduct. A student shall not dress, groom, wear or use emblems, insignias, badges or other symbols where the effect thereof is to distract unreasonably the attention of the other students or otherwise to cause interruption and/or interference with the operation of the school. If school authorities have a reason to question the appropriateness of a student’s clothing or appearance, parents or guardians will be contacted and informed of such. The school principal/site administrator will make the final determination on whether a student’s dress or appearance conflicts with these standards.
