All Pro Dad
All Pro Dad is a simple idea with a profound impact. It’s a 45 minute monthly breakfast held before school where fathers and their children meet with other dads and kids. During this time, they discuss a wide range of family topics, spend time together, create fun memories and are equipped with resources to strengthen their relationship. They usually meet the last Friday of the month from 6:45 – 7:30AM.
Each spring Greenville’s first graders participate in the Literacy Partnerships. This 10 week program is designed to encourage recreational reading.

Brain Smart Start
The Greenville School Family is learning about Conscious Discipline this year. Conscious Discipline, developed by Dr. Becky Bailey, is a comprehensive social and emotional intelligence classroom management program that empowers adults and children. Adults are taught new skills that promote permanent behavior changes for themselves and their students. Conscious Discipline offers a relationship-based community model of classroom management where the “school family” is at the core. The goals of the school family are to create problem solvers and to provide a loving and safe environment with everyone showing cooperation and respect. When these are achieved, greater learning can occur. Go to www.ConsciousDiscipline.com to find out more and gain skills that can be used in the home setting.
