A Note from Mrs. Goodwin
It is the time of year when we begin the planning process for the 2023-2024 school year. We value your input regarding your child’s classroom placement, however we do not accept specific teacher requests.

I want to wish all of our families a very Happy Spring Break Week. Please enjoy this time with your loved ones. Spring break begins on Thursday, April 6 and we will return to school on Monday April 17.
SC Ready Testing Information
Dear 3-5 Parent/Guardian,
In the upcoming weeks, we will begin our end-of-year testing here at Camden Elementary School. The South Carolina College and Career READY Assessment (SC READY) is a statewide assessment in English Language Arts (Paper Based), Mathematics (computer-based), and Science (computer-based), which will assess student performance in South Carolina College and Career Ready Standards. For more information on the tests, please visit http://ed.sc.gov/tests/middle/sc-ready/. The SC READY assessment is not timed (estimated 2 ½ hours each day) and will be administered on both the computer and paper. Students will not be released while testing is in progress on their testing day. Please refer to the following testing schedule:
May 2nd – ELA 1 (Writing) -P aper
May 4th – ELA 2 (Reading)-Paper
May 19th – Math -Computer
May 11th- Science (Fourth Grade Only)-Computer
Please take the time to review this with your child. Test results will provide vital information regarding how your child is progressing at his/her grade level. Students who are currently served under an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) or a 504 will receive accommodations during testing. Please make sure that your child gets adequate sleep and has a good breakfast on testing days to ensure a successful testing experience. Parents are encouraged to have their 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 425-8960.
Mrs. Beth A. White, M.Ed.
Procedure for Lunch with Students
We are excited to welcome families into our school to eat lunch with their CES Colts starting February 1. When you eat with your child in the cafeteria, you will notice that we have routines, procedures and expectations for our students. To ensure the safety of all of our students in the cafeteria, we will follow the following guidelines for parent lunch guests in our school:
All lunch visitors will need to bring identification and check in at the front office to receive a visitor’s badge.
All lunch visitors will also need to be listed as a contact in PowerSchool for the child they are visiting.
Please email our Lunch Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 803-425-8960 to let us know you plan to eat lunch with your child at least one day prior to your visit.
Parents should arrive at your child’s exact lunch time to ensure that we keep all students on schedule. All students must eat at their designated lunch time.
Our school will have a special eating area for you and your child when you visit. Due to space constraints, please limit guests to 2 per student/per visit.
We welcome you to purchase food in our cafeteria or to bring food from home. The cost for a parent lunch is $4.81
Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions.
Don’t forget that yearbooks are on sale for $20! Order forms are available in the Library. Yearbooks can be purchased in the Library with cash, check (CES), or online payment via MySchoolBucks on the CES website. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Haley Anderson or Ms. Nikki Ingram.
Thank you for supporting our Book Fair!
Notes from Nurse Rhonda
Remember to send an extra set of clothing in your child’s bookbag. Children sometimes fall in mud puddles, rip their clothing, or spill their drinks. Although all these are not medical concerns and the child will remain at school, we want them to be comfortable.
Mrs. Dubose will be substituting in music classes while Mrs. Morse is out taking care of her new baby boy Theodore (Teddy) Charles Morse. He was born on Monday, December 26th weighing 7.6 lbs and 20 inches long. Mrs Morse and Teddy are doing great!
