    EXPRESSION DAYS

    Our parents do an awesome job sending students to school professionally dressed in their uniforms.  Students are asked to wear uniforms every day.  Several students have asked to have days to express themselves by wearing their fashionably coordinated outfits.  Students are free to wear an outfit of their choice as long as it is within the school’s dress code. 

     

    Students will have expression days on the following Fridays:

    BIRTHDAY PARTIES

    After numerous requests, I have decided to allow birthday celebrations for students.  In order for this to be a memorable experience without interrupting instruction, all parents are asked to please adhere to the following:

    ·         No more than 2 guests

    ·         Must take place during lunch time only (no more than 20 minutes)

    ·         Store bought, regular size or miniature cupcakes only

    gift bags should be given to teacher to distribute at the end of the day (no balloons)

  • Classroom visits

     

    A big “THANK YOU” to all of our parents for your outpouring support.  We promote a school environment where parents are free to observe their child’s class.  I welcome your presence and understand the impact this will have on your child’s success in school.  Our teachers are required to teach tons of materials, so they must devote their class time to teaching.  We will have the following guidelines for classroom visits:

    ·         Parents are free to visit at any time; however, only two adults during a visit.  Babies are not allowed since they tend to make noise and cause students to become excited and distracted. 

                                          

    ·         Teachers will not be available to conference with parents during class time.  If you would like to schedule a conference, please contact the guidance counselor, Ms. Claire Steverson at (803) 733-4321. 

     

    ·         All visits are limited to 20 minutes or less. 

     

    Parents must not speak to or address any students in the class.

    EARLY DISMISSAL

    Early dismissal counts the same as tardies.  Many of our students have been checked out frequently and this negatively affects their performance in class, thus resulting in a low grade.  Due to the frequent number of early dismissals, we will have a cut off time of 2:00 pm. Students should remain until the end of the day and parents are asked to schedule all appointments after 2:30 pm. 

    Thank you.  I know that you appreciate our efforts to make sure students learn as much possible.

     

    NEW DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

    All car riders will be assembled in our multipurpose room.  Three adults will walk to each car to get the name of the car rider.  The student will then be called outside.  All parents are asked to remain in your cars and proceed around the car loop.  Please do not stand in the front entrance or come to the main entrance.  Students will only be called by the cars in the car rider loop.

     

    This improves safety and helps us to ensure that students are leaving with the correct adult.
