Schools We Support
Heritage Elementary School (HES)
The Mission of Heritage Elementary is to foster lifelong learning by providing innovative, quality, inquiry-based educational experiences, which emphasize critical and creative thinking. This Covid year, Principal, Mrs. Heather Hester, wants us to know… “Our teachers are working so hard to meet the needs of students present in their classrooms but also help the students having to stay home due to Covidquarantine to keep up with their learning.”
Principal Hester has said, “From the students, families, and staff at Heritage, please accept our sincere gratitude for all that you have done, and continue to do, to impact lives in a positive way. The CRO Glassy efforts stimulated and inspired teachers and students at Heritage Kindergarten through 5th-grades to improve their tested performance to an excellent rating for the first time.”
CRO Glassy is pleased to be able to include O.P. Earle Elementary in the schools we now support. O.P.Earle is located in the heart of Landrum and is part of the Spartanburg School District. It serves 423 students in grades PK-5. O.P. Earle is a Kennedy Center Partners in Education school and an Arts in Basic Curriculum (ABC) school with the “mission to inspire and educate young minds.”
Principal Brian Murray said: “We are looking forward to this partnership and can’t wait to see the growth and success of our children as a result of your generosity.”
And your donations have already made a difference. In the fall of 2020, CRO Glassy supported software licenses, enough Chromebook cases for all students, and the Literacy Footprint leveled readers.
Tigerville Elementary School (TES)
The mission of Tigerville Elementary School is to provide quality educational experiences tailored to meet the individual needs of students. Tigerville Elementary earned the 2018 National Blue Ribbon Award and credited the partnership with CRO Glassy as one of the components to success.
Superintendent Burke Royster told the Times Examiner, “Tigerville Elementary is proof that students in rural schools can produce outstanding academic results. It is also evidence of the important role community partners such as The Cliff’s Residents Outreach can play in a school success. I want to extend my congratulations to Principal Diane Jackson, her administrative staff, outstanding teachers, and the school’s hard-working students and supportive families for receiving this national recognition. We are incredibly proud of their accomplishments”
