We're Almost There!
The asphalt portion of our track was approved for use on Friday, March 8, 2019. Following the completion of the 5th Annual Dolphin Dash, the rubber overlay will be placed on the track and the project will be complete.

Nacho Average Teachers
February 22, 2019
Our teachers work tirelessly day after day to educate, enrich, and encourage our students. Since we couldn't send them away on a grand holiday, we decided to bring a fiesta to them. Thank you to everyone who donated food and time to make this teacher appreciation event a success!
Animal Tales Assembly~ February 13, 2019
Our students were inspired and delighted by the live animal educational assembly, Animal Tales. The assembly showcased the excitement of reading and exploring the journey of books by featuring several live animals. Students learned about animal-human relationships, empathy and compassion, natural history, and geography.

SOUTHPORT-OAK ISLAND KIWANIS GOLF BALL DROP
December 21, 2018
We are incredibly blessed by the generosity of the Southport-Oak Island Kiwanis Club and it's supporters! On December 21, 2018, our student body gathered on the front field to witness a check presentation and golf ball drop sponsored by the Kiwanis. The $25,000 check provided funds for the rubber coating for our new track and was given in honor of Denny Marcin, a Kiwanis club member who volunteered countless hours at Southport Elementary.
We 💙 our community!

November 16, 2018
Despite the havoc Hurricane Florence wreaked on our community, the Dolphin Nation came together on Friday, November 16, 2018, for a time of fun fellowship. We dressed in our barnyard best, played games, ate delicious food from local restaurants, and danced like it was 1999. Thank you to all the volunteers who manned games and to Bella Cucina, Chuck’s Homemade Ice Cream, DJ Tim Holland, Dry Street Pizza and Pub, Kai-Joe’s, Pepperoni Grill at the Beach, and Walmart for your generous donations to this fun evening.

Hurricane Florence came ashore with a vengeance, crippling our community and testing our resolve. But we showed Florence what the Dolphin Nation is made of. We rallied together to help our neighbors, to gather supplies and finances to support those most affected by the disastrous path the hurricane wrought. Hurricane Florence demolished our campus and brought significant damage to our building. While BCS employees, especially our own Mr. Gene sought to restore order inside our school, over 65 volunteers gathered to repair damage to the school grounds. We ARE the Dolphin Nation. Together, we are stronger than any adversary that comes our way.
Back-to-School Breakfast- August 20, 2018
Thank you to everyone who donated to our Back-to-School breakfast. Our teachers are working together to build a brighter future for our students. Your generosity is helping form a foundation that gets this school year off to a great start! Thank you!
Thanks to your generosity, we sold over $7,000 in Charleston Wrap. The $2,500 profits have been reinvested in our school and are supporting additional curriculum, classroom supplies, and instructional support. Thank you for making this no-pressure sale such a success!
