This summer, our district and the Kershaw County Library have joined together with our community to offer fun reading and summer activities for our students!  We have reading activities for elementary and middle schools, a reading Quest with prizes for high school, and honors summer reading lists.

State Testing

Students in grades 3-5 will be taking the SC Ready state assessments as we close out the school year.  Please help us ensure a positive testing experience for everyone by

  • not scheduling appointments on these days
  • going to bed on time and getting plenty of rest
  • eating a nutritious breakfast
  • arriving at school on time
  • Electronic Policy:  students and monitors may not be in possession of a cell phone, smart watch or any other electronic device that can be used for communicating, recording, timing, creating images, or storing images during testing.
