Jump Up Day for Rising 6th Graders

Attention parents of rising 6th graders: We are thrilled to collaborate with our local middle schools. JUMP UP Days are scheduled for March! These JUMP UP Days are intended to help students start getting acclimated to the next level in their educational careers in Rock Hill Schools. Hosting schools will give students basic information about the schedule, extracurricular activities, expectations, as well as answer questions and work to help students feel comfortable and excited about the upcoming transition to middle school. Current Virtual Academy students will be invited to participate in the JUMP UP Day at their zoned schools for next year.


Our current fifth grade students will visit the middle school in which they are zoned for during the month of March, face-to-face. Each Sixth Grade Jump Up Day will run approximately 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. Dates to be hosted by each middle school are as follows:


March 15 – Dutchman Creek Middle School

March 16 – Rawlinson Road Middle School

March 21 – Saluda Trail Middle School

March 22 – Castle Heights Middle School

March 23 – Sullivan Middle School


Transportation will be provided by the district.


Be on the look out...You will receive a permission slip to complete and return to the teacher.


Thank you for ensuring your 5th grader is prepared for the visit by arriving to school on time!

Bedford Falls Book Fair

Our Bedford Falls Book Fair is right around the corner – February 27 through March 3!

From the Art Room:

Students will be given art back after our school wide Art Show on April 11th. Students will choose the artwork they would like displayed so they will need choices. I can't wait for you to see what your child(ren) have created this year in art!


Congratulations to the following students for representing Lesslie Elementary at the District Art Show! The reception for the art show will be March 2nd from 5-7pm at the Center for the Arts (121 E Main St, Rock Hill, SC 29730).
