Timberland High School is asking the community to help keep the school’s only academic incentive club, Jostens Renaissance.
Club members focus on academic improvement; if you have good behavior and outstanding grades, you will be acknowledged. The club works hard to raise all the money for the pep rallies and for T-shirts that will be given to the students who have improved their grades.
The students are asking for the community to come support them on March 6 at Sonic, located in Moncks Corner, from 5 - 8 p.m. The club receives 10 percent of the proceeds.
All other donations are also accepted.
Ye Ole Fashioned has Timberland Night every third Thursday of the month. Timberland Renaissance needs all the help they can receive: We are in dire need because without help, Jostens Renaissance will be canceled.
Open House at Timberland?Open House will be held at Timberland from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 23.
Everyone is invited to attend. Come meet your student’s teacher.
