We are located in Quitman, MS, county seat of Clarke County. See map here. We receive valuable community support and are always looking for ways to reciprocate. Following are some ways we have found to partner with our community:
Free books for children ages 0 – 4. Quitman School District is partnered with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library so that all registered children in our community may receive a free book every month. To register a child simply click the logo to the left, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (601) 776-2186.
Excel By 5 is an innovative early childhood community certification process focusing on a community’s young children. It emphasizes the important roles parents and early childhood educators play in the lives of children during their most formative years – birth to age 5.
Project SCORE is a mentoring program utilized by both our upper elementary and junior high schools. Members of the community volunteer hours for in school and after school tutoring.
DART Recycling Program
Quitman Upper Elementary has partnered with DART through a STEM Grant for recycling foam lunch trays utilized in their cafeteria. Teachers and administrators have integrated math and science through this program as students learn the benefits of recycling and use math skills to create and analyze graphed data representing class results of the recycling effort.
This is where we live.
