SADD Club. As you are out celebrating New Years Eve with family and friends, remember to wear your seat belt and drive safely. The members of the SADD Club would like to ask everyone out driving on Monday, December 31, to drive with your headlights on, showing support for our campaign for a safe holiday on South Carolina’s highways.

• The BCHS SADD Club is collecting the front of holiday cards for the recycle program at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. Cards for any occasion can be donated, but must be free of any writing on the inside of the front of the card. (We cannot collect Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards for this program.) St. Jude’s Ranch for Children recycles used greeting cards and creates new holiday and all-occasion greeting cards.  Recycled cards are sold to support programs and services for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families. Card fronts may be dropped off with Mrs. Grooms in the front office at Battery Creek High School.  Card fronts are accepted year round for any holiday/birthday.
