**THE SCHOOL FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH BRIGHT BY TEXT TO DELIVER TIPS TO PARENTS**
The School Foundation has teamed up with Bright by Text to bring the program to the Florence community! The program, already offered in Colorado, New York, California, and other communities around the nation, offers parents and caregivers expert tips and resources for children prenatal to age 8 right at their fingertips. “A child’s brain doubles in size the first year and is nearly full grown by age 5,” stated Catherine Sanderson, Ph.D.,CCC-SLP,NBPT-Literacy, with Florence 1 Schools. “During this early brain development period, important connections are made that will impact children for the remainder of their lives. With this knowledge, it makes sense for parents of young children to have expert information on brain development at their fingertips. Bright by Text brings information to parents in a manner that is easy for them to manage in their busy lives—quick and effective text messages. I am overjoyed that The School Foundation is providing Bright by Text for parents with children 0-8 years of age in the Florence 1 Schools attendance zone.” To sign up, parents and caregivers with children under 8 can text the word SCKIDS to 274448.

**HELPING FLORENCE FLOURISH VOLUNTEERS REALLY CLEAN UP SATURDAY**
More than 100 volunteers started their Saturday early with a goal to pick up some discarded-by-the-roadside furniture, a bunch of litter, paint Manna House and generally to make Florence a better looking community Saturday than it was Friday. “We’ve been excited about the number of people who came out this morning, I’d say we had more than 100 people here,” said the Rev. Chris Handley, president of Helping Florence Flourish, as the crowd prepared to depart Florence First Baptist Church for ServeFLO Neighborhood Cleanup. ServeFLO is a season of service, held annually in June, in which area churches, businesses, nonprofits and individuals come together to serve/love Florence. Some community leaders voiced concerns that neighborhoods need attention.
