Principal's Message


    Mr. Yount
    Here we go. The last 20 days of school. It has been an incredible year. I am so thankful for all we have accomplished this year at Blaney. Our students and teachers have worked so hard and have been showing that on the end of the year testing. I am so excited to see those scores when they come back. 
    After testing ends in the middle of May, school continues until the end of May. Please encourage your students to keep working hard. We will have lots of end of the year events so please be sure to read the newsletter for dates and check the website calendar.
    Special thanks to our teachers for a great year, our students for their hard work and our support staff for all they do. A big thank you to Mrs. Butler and Ms. Warren for their leadership this year.
    I can not let this opportunity go by without saying special thank you and emotional good bye to Mrs. Judy Reed. Mrs. Reed has been part of the Blaney community for over 30 years and has decided to retire at the end of this year. We will miss here more than she will ever know. From all of us in the BLANEY FAMILY- WE LOVE YOU MRS. REED.
    Here are few important dates for May:
    May 11 & 12 SC PASS
    May 11-13 Archery Team at Nationals

A.P.'s Message

  • Krissi Butler

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    The Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) in Science and Social Studies will be administered to South Carolina students in grades four through eight this spring.  All students in these grade levels are required to take the SCPASS except those who qualify for the South Carolina Alternate Assessment (SC-Alt).    All students will take their test online this school year which is new.  The SCPASS science and social studies items will consist of multiple choice items.  The online administration window is May 11-May 27. Blaney Elementary will administer the test on the following dates...


                SCIENCE- Wednesday, May 11th


                SOCIAL STUDIES- Thursday, May 12th


    SCPASS test items are aligned to the South Carolina Academic Standards for each content area (2005 Science Academic Standards and 2011 Social Studies Academic Standard).  SCPASS test items are written to assess the content knowledge and skills described in the academic standards and indicators.  Information on SC PASS and links to the academic standards and supporting documents are available on the South Carolina Department of Education Web site at  


    There are three performance levels for SCPASS;

    • Exemplary- The student demonstrated exemplary performance in meeting the grade level standards.
    • Met- The student met the grade level standards.
    • Not Met- The student did not meet the grade level standards.


    Students will also be receiving a SC PASS Essentials Brochure for students and parents in Thursday Folders.  Please take the time to review this with your child.  SC PASS test results will provide vital information regarding how your child is progressing at his/her grade level.  Please make sure your child gets adequate sleep and has a good breakfast on testing days to ensure a successful testing experience.  Parents are encouraged to have your children to school on time and avoid making appointments for their children on these dates.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 438-3241.
