TEACH Foundation Grant Recipient - Washington Street Elementary School, Darlington County Schools
Dr. Amy Blake-Lewis - Regional Support Coach
Washington Street Elementary is the recipient of a grant from the TEACH Foundation. The TEACH Foundation (TEACHING, EDUCATING AND ADVANCING CHILDREN IN HARTSVILLE) administers grants that fund the PULSE initiative. Started in 2011, the PULSE initiative is designed to supplement academic learning and personal development of Hartsville school children.
Through this grant, a Boy Scout troop will continue to operate after school at WSE as part of Scoutreach. Scoutreach is the Boy Scouts of America’s commitment to ensuring all young people have an opportunity to join scouting, regardless of circumstances. Funded by Sonoco, Scoutreach teaches boys the integral precepts necessary to become better leaders and citizens: building character, developing values and accepting responsibility.
