Financial Literacy

Lisa James is leading a free financial literacy program through Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial for the parents, teachers, staff, and the overall Camden County Community. (Anyone who is a stakeholder can attend.) The purpose of this is to help our families better understand their finances, and that translates to supporting our students.
The workshop is a 5-session series that will take place over the course of 5 weeks. To make it convenient for parents' schedules, parents have the option for signing up to attend the workshop on Tuesday evenings or Thursday evenings. The sessions will last for 45-60 minutes and will be held at the Professional Learning Building at the BOE from 6:15pm-7:15pm.

Home of the Dolphins and a 2002 Georgia School of Excellence because of their exemplar history of academics, extracurricular programs and community involvement, Crooked River Elementary School (CRES) first opened its doors to students on August 29, 1986.  Named for its proximity to the Crooked River on the northern border of St. Marys, CRES provides a  motivating learning environment for Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade with an average enrollment of 585 students.  Serving students from the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base and surrounding area, the CRES faculty is composed of approximately 42 certified professionals, 12 paraprofessionals, 3 clerical employees and a registered nurse.

If it is to be, it is up to me. If I believe, I can achieve.
