       Thanks to a grant awarded by the School Foundation to Anne Darby Hunter, Guidance Counselor at WGE, students participated in living history activities during Swamp Fox Day at Wallace Gregg on Friday, April 4th.  
       Students interacted with Sgt. Dusty Owens, a re-enactor from the Revolutionary War Hugh Giles Regiment Militia Unit.  Sgt. Owens set up camp for the day as students rotated through and talked to him about serving with General Francis Marion and living in colonial times. 
       Third graders rotated to 18th Century craft and game centers. They tried their hand at stilt walking, code writing, and dancing 18th Century style. Then they made tri-corn hats, powder pouches, started an embroidery sampler and played games such as jump rope, "Skin the Snake", "I Sent a Letter to my Love", or "Stool Ball."
Students also had the opportunity to make butter for their brown bread and had beef jerky snacks. Bag lunches were served with Liberty Tea Punch.

Students from Francis Marion University have been working with students from Ms. Butler's class for the last
few weeks in ELA. The Francis Marion students are currently taking the English Language Arts Methods class. 
They practice the skills they’ve learned as they work with students. They read together and practice reading comprehension skills.

A huge thumbs up to the staff and students at Wallace Gregg for scoring an A for student achievement
and improvement in the school year 2012-2013! The grade is a key component of the State’s approved
Flexibility Request from certain provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA),
commonly referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
