Daniel Island Academy holds successful food drive

Daniel Island Academy surpassed its goal for its annual food drive benefitting the Lowcountry Food Bank. In total, 1,342 pounds of food were donated from school families, teachers, and staff, which will equal over 1,000 meals. The Lowcountry Food Bank helps to feed many of the poor and hungry of the area through the distribution of healthy food and grocery products to nonprofit agencies serving the poor.

"Each year Daniel Island Academy supports a number of charitable organizations through the philanthropic efforts of our school families and staff," stated Kerry Nowosielski, School Director. "Not only is it important for us as a school to give back to the community, but also to lead our young students through the efforts of our teachers and our parents’ association (PADIA), in how they may participate and make a difference!"

This year’s food drive was organized by the school’s mentor teachers, Andrea Fuller, Alicia Conrad and Erica Lear. Mentor teachers serve as teacher liaisons throughout the year to help keep school programs and procedures operating at the highest level. This includes supporting their fellow teachers in maintaining NAEYC standards throughout the year as required of all classrooms.

Daniel Island Academy (DIA) is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and offers full time, part time and mother’s morning out programs for children ages 12 months through 6 years, including Kindergarten. The Academy is an allergy-safe facility, and is currently completing its certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
