TEST MONITORS NEEDED
Mrs. Dixon is in need of test monitors for the SC Ready /SC Pass state testing. You must have an approved background check. The testing dates for which monitors are needed are:
Monday, May 6 8am
Tuesday, May 7 8am
Thursday, May 9 8am
Monday, May 13 8am
Typically, monitors are needed for 1.5 - 2 hours each day. I will conduct a training session for monitors prior to testing. The primary job of a monitor is to walk around the testing room during the test. Please DOJO, email (firstname.lastname@example.org),or call 803-438-8000 to sign up to help. Thank you.
Friday, April 26 will be the cut off date for AR points being earned towards the Top 100 party. AR will cont., however, for grade level points for a few weeks into May.
Take note of this date as it is quickly approaching.
Yearbooks are here and they look great! This year's signing party will be held on Friday, May 17. However, in order for your child to attend this party, a yearbook has to be purchased by April 30. This will help cut down on any confusion about attending, etc.
We will continue to sell yearbooks until we run out. We have roughly 50 left as of 4/24/19. Don't miss out. This was a BIG year for us and we tried to capture those BIG moments as they happened. We said "Out with the Old, In with the New" to our schools. Yearbooks are $20. If you are unsure if you purchased a yearbook or not, DOJO your child's teacher to find out.
ALL CHROMEBOOKS AND CHARGERS ARE DUE BACK NOW!
All students need to return their Chromebook and charger before leaving for Spring Break! These devices need to be checked before state testing starts.
If you have lost your charger, a $40 fee will need to be paid for a replacement.
April Golden Apple Recipients
Congratulations to Mrs. Pam Britton (Faculty) and Ms. Michelle (Support Staff) on receiving the Golden Apples for the month of April. Our school is a better place because of you both!
With our new facility, comes new, improved technology - yay! Our new sign-in, sign-out technology requires an ID at all times. Please remember to bring this with you any time you or someone else is signing a student out early or in late. You will be asked to go back and get your ID if you do forget it. Thanks, as always, for helping make this a smooth transition.
