Read with the Gamecocks

It is that time of the year for the Read with the Gamecocks winter reading program. Click here for the reading log your student can fill out to earn men's and women's basketball tickets. All they have to do is read every day for two weeks and fill out the log. Once they have finished the two week segment, be sure they turn in their form to the Learning Commons by December 14th to receive their vouchers. This year's winter literacy games are as follows:

  • Men's Basketball vs. Missouri Saturday, January 12, 2019 @ 1PM
  • Women's Basketball vs. Vanderbilt Monday, January 28, 2019 @ 7pm

We hope our students will participate and we look forward to seeing you at the literacy celebrations.

Holiday Dates and Information

Students will be dismissed December 21st at 11:40am. A hot, bagged lunch will be served. The cafeteria team will deliver ordered lunches to classrooms around 10:30 am that morning. Students will eat in the classroom. Winter parties can begin at 10:30 am. A few points about parties:
  • All parents, other than the homeroom parent, will be able to check in beginning at 10:30.
