Let's show our school spirit!

Students are encouraged to wear school colors or Kingston T-shirts every Friday. School colors are blue and white. Wearing school colors each week is a proactive way of reminding students to maintain our safe and caring school. Each class that has at least 50% or more students wearing school colors will have their class name entered in a drawing. Two classes will win the Cool Cat sign to be placed on their door for the week, as well as some type of incentive (candy, ice cream, chips, etc). Each week we hope to choose a different class. Please encourage your child to participate in Spirit Day every Friday!


Congratulations to Mrs. April King's 2nd grade class and Mrs. Sharon Newman's 3rd grade class for being our winners last week!

PLAY IN THE AIR- Slackers Ropes Course

Talkin’ Trash (TT) is a school recycling and waste diversion competition that encourages elementary schools to engage in waste reduction, recycling, composting, and waste management practices. Every month, the top three winning schools will receive a plaque, supplies for their school, a recycled content prize for each 4th grader, and a visit from the Talkin' Trash crew! The students will also get a chance to appear on television. This is a school-wide effort to collect as much recyclables as possible.


As a school incentive to ALL students, each student will earn a tally mark for their classroom for every 13-gallon bag filled with recyclables. These recyclables include the following items: plastic bottles or jugs and aluminum cans. At the end of the month, the class with the most tally marks /13-gallon bags, will earn “Play in the Air” time with their entire class and Coach T. This event includes a thirty-six foot long rope course kit designed for adventure and FUN!


Thanks in advance for your participation!

    What is Title I?

    Title I (of the federal ESSA/ESEA legislation) is a federal program that provides opportunities for the children served to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to meet challenging state content standards.


    Title I resources are distributed to schools where needs are the greatest, to make a difference in the improvement of instruction.


    How does a school qualify for Title I funds?


    A school is served by Title I based on the percentage of children from low-income families. In most South Carolina schools, this is defined as eligibility for free- or reduced-price lunch. Schools are now allocated funds based on the number of families receiving Medicaid or SNAP benefits. If you feel your family would qualify for free/reduced lunch, please complete the free/reduced meal lunch application online through Horry County Schools webpage or click on the link below. Also, if you feel your family may qualify for Medicaid or SNAP benefits and you need additional information, please contact Mrs. Moore.

    Title I Survey and Parent Suggestions

    Kingston Elementary School receives federal funding through Title I. A copy of the School wide and Parenting plan can be reviewed in our Guidance department, room 105. We need your help in evaluating the Title I program for the 2018-19 school year. Please take a few minutes and complete the survey below.


    Parents are offered the opportunity to make suggestions or ask questions about our Title I program. If you have additional comments or suggestions, please contact Martina Moore, Title I coordinator by phone at (843)365-8259, or by email at mmoore001@horrycountyschools.net
