Pop Tab Collection

Please help 4th and 5th graders with their service project of collecting pop tabs for 4-H club. The collected pop tabs will be recycled and the money earned will be used to sponsor children to attend a summer camp. You may turn in any pop tabs to Mrs. Eastham or give to any 4th or 5th grader.

Thank you for helping us give back to our community!

If you come in to the school you  must sign in at the front office for security reasons.  Also, we get to count your time here in the school as volunteer hours.  PTA generally will recognize a “volunteer of the month” at the regular PTA meetings. 



For the next few weeks, PTO and Mr. Tim would like to host an “In School Coat Drive.” Have a coat, give a coat. Need a coat, take a coat. Any extra coats that you have lying around, please donate to the school for this special event to help our local families. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Tim Leigh at 423-3341.


This month we have a special project. We are collecting new and gently used stuffed animals. The stuffed animals will be donated to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital in memory of Veralyn Dick. Veralyn was the 14 month old granddaughter of Mrs. Sandi Dick. Please help us to continue to make a big impact on children’s lives. We will take donations throughout the month of October.

Donations may be turned in at the school.

Science Hill is proud to be a smoke-free campus!!
A 100 percent tobacco-free school policy reflects a firm commitment by school administration, teachers and parents to provide students, personnel, and community members a safe, tobacco-free  environment. Tobacco-free schools (including alternate nicotine products and vapor products) give adults the opportunity to be role models for tobacco-free lifestyles and set the tone for reduced social acceptance of tobacco use. In addition, studies show that students in tobacco-free schools are less likely to start smoking. More resources: http://www.tobaccofreeschoolsky.org/index.html
