Principal's Message

  • Picture of Mr. Yount It is here! Spring, warm weather, the last few weeks of school and STANDARDIZED TESTING. I cannot emphasis enough how important it is for parents and teachers to work together to keep our students focused over the next six weeks. We will have a lot of fun activities coming in May but we need our students ready and wanting to do their best on the test.
    Students who miss tests dates have to do makeup test and may have to miss some of the fun activities. It very important for parents to get your student to school on time each day. ACT Aspire is for 3rd-5th graders and SC PASS is for 4th and 5th graders.
    I am excited about our Mini Relay for Life Walk on April 24. Students can participate by making a $2.00 donations. Also, we are having a slime battle between Mrs. BK, Mr. Beck, Mrs. Frye, Mrs. Mohr and myself. The faculty member who gets the most donations gets slimed.
