School Announcements

  • Kindergarten Registration


    Thursday, February 18 is a very important day for our school as we plan for 2016-17. Registration is for 4K, 5K, and first time first graders to Kershaw County School District. Even though the 4K class will not be housed at Blaney (it will be at Doby’s Mill) parents can still register at Blaney.

    It is very important for a parent to come and register because the number of students that register that day helps us know how many teachers we will need for next year. Parents can pre-register at www.kcsdschools.net/roundup. If you pre-register your actual time at school will be between 10-15 minutes. Pre-registering will also allow you to receive an InfoSnap Code for summer registration and make that process very quick as well.

    Please tell your friends, family and neighbors about registration. The first 100 parents that register during the 9:00-1:00 time slot will get free Chick-fil-A biscuits. Parents that register in the 4:00-6:30 time will receive a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A Ice Cream until the coupons run out. If you have questions please call 803-438-3241.

  • Notes From Nurse Mathis 

    • Keep your child at home if they are sick. Children who feel poorly will not get anything out of their school day and could possibly spread illness to others.
    • Fever of 100 or greater with a sore throat and/or cough means your child should not be at school until they have been fever free for 24 hours without a fever reducer.
    • Teach your children to cough and sneeze into a tissue or their elbow. Wash hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer when soap and water aren’t available.
    • Many illnesses are spread even before symptoms start. This is why cough/sneezing hygiene and hand washing are so importan
    • Go to http://www.scdhec.gov/health/disease/exclusion.htm for additional information on excludable illnesses. Kershaw County School District abides by these DHEC standards.

    Mr. Yount

    February is a very important month for us. On February 18 we will be having Kindergarten registration for the 2016-17 school year. This registration is for all kindergarten (4K and 5K) and first time first graders to Kershaw County. Registration at Blaney will be from 9:00-1:00 and 4:00-6:30. The first 100 parents between 9:00-1:00 will get a Chick-fil-A biscuit and parents that register between 4:00-6:30 will get a coupon for a free ice cream at Chick-fil-A. Parents can pre-register at www.kcsdschools.net/roundup. This will speed up your time when you register. Parents who attend this February registration will receive their SnapCode Information in July and that will make your summer registration go very fast. It is also very important for you to register in February so we know how many teachers we need to hire for next year.

    Also, February 12 is Muffins for Moms from 7:15-7:45. We hope you will join us for muffins, coffee and juice.

    It is Feburary and LOVE is in the air!  With that being said, I fell in love with what this article said about encouraging students to love learning!  Seeing the light in a student's eyes and the smile on their face is so rewarding when they love to learn and grow!  Enjoy reading this and share with you friends and family!

     

     

     

     

    5 Ways to Encourage a Love of Learning

    1. Read, read, and read to your child for at least 15 minutes every day. Take turns reading with your older child — you read one page, she reads the next — or establish a family reading time when everyone reads her own book.
    2. Encourage him to express his opinion, talk about his feelings, and make choices. This will build his confidence to participate in school discussions and activities. Be sure to establish parameters for his choices, since you don't want to criticize his decisions.
    3. Help her develop hobbies and interests, and ensure she has the tools she needs to pursue them. For example, if she loves to check the mailbox, give her a magnifying glass and album and show her how to start a stamp collection.
    4. Provide him with play opportunities that support different kinds of learning styles — from listening and visual learning to sorting and sequencing. Stock your closet with supplies that will encourage him to be creative and express himself.
    5. Point out the new things you learn with enthusiasm. Discuss the different ways you find new information, showing her that learning is both fun and challenging.
