  • school delay Delayed Start Wednesdays:

    Beginning August 21, 2019, KCSD will have their first delayed start for the 2019-2020 school year.

    The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) is implementing a delayed start schedule on Wednesdays to provide additional professional development time for teachers without disrupting families’ schedules.

    Bus routes, car rider lines and breakfast times will not be changed. Students can arrive at the normal start time or choose to come at the delayed start time, which will generally be 30 minutes later. Students who arrive on time will be supervised by adults and able to participate in learning activities.

    Delayed start Wednesdays allow teachers to evaluate data and collaborate on lessons on a consistent schedule.  As we develop our Professional Learning Communities, this weekly time will allow us to be more effective in improving our students’ academic achievement.

    Instruction will begin at 8:10 am and students will be tardy at 8:10 am on Delay Start Wednesdays.

  • New Box Tops for Education Information

    boxtop scan       

    Dear Families, The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school! Over the summer, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label. Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now. The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online. If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products. Thanks for helping our school get what it needs! BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE NEW APP OR UPDATE YOUR EXISTING APP: LEARN MORE ABOUT THESE CHANGES AT NO MORE CLIPPING SCAN YOUR RECEIPT SEE HOW AT BTFE.COM SEE THIS... CLIP IT SEE THIS...

  • Habit 4 — Think Win-Win

    4 Think Win-Win is the habit of mutual respect.  When we think Win-Win, we make sure everyone leaves the situation feeling like a winner. For example, if we think Win-Win with school assignments, we make sure our work is completed.  It's a win for the student because they are staying on task and it's a win for the teacher, because they know the student is putting forth their best efforts.  This situation is a win for the parents too, because they know they are producing the future leaders of tomorrow and all parents want successful, hard working students.  So, this month, think about some different ways that you can create some WIN-WIN situations.
