Questions about Redistricting?
Online Interactive Maps have been created for each scenario to allow the community to find their address, explore the scenarios, and understand potential attendance zone changes (if any) to their family and neighborhood.
Any questions or comments regarding the redistricting scenarios can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Carolina vs. Clemson -- Manna House Community Service
Hello HEC Families! Fourth Grade is excited to announce that our community service project for the year will be collecting non-perishable, non-expired goods for Manna House. This organization serves the community by providing non-perishable goods to those in need.
This year we will have a friendly competition between the University of South Carolina and Clemson University fans. Students will pledge their donation to Carolina or Clemson. The university with the most donations will win our friendly competition, and will see our administrators wear the winning team’s gear. The Manna House and the community they serve will be our true winner.
Our drive will begin Monday, November 2nd and we will accept donations until Monday, November 23rd. Please see the list below for examples of possible non-perishable, non-expired goods accepted. Please contribute however you feel called.
HEC in-person students- please bring your donations to the collection bins on the blue hall on days you are in school.
FIVE students- please bring your donations to H. E. Corley Elementary School (address: 1500 Chadford Rd, Irmo, SC 29063) to the front office. Office hours are 7AM-4PM, Monday-Friday. There will be a bin inside for your donations.
