Kelly Holden and Katie Farr both presented, which made it extra special as they both shared some inspiring ideas! Thank you, ladies! And, thank you everyone who was able to attend on Thursday!

Registration Information - July 26, 2016

Believe it or not, we have been working on registration for the new school year already! Carolyn Reece has been putting together packets that will be mailed to SCES families in the weeks ahead! It has been exciting as we prepare to welcome students in August!!

Thompson-Turner has made a recommendation that we hold our registration for the 2016-2017 school year "off site" due to any last minute construction/contractor work that will need to be completed through the month of July; therefore, Shoally Creek Elementary students will register at the Spartanburg 2 District Office. We plan to hold the registration on the same day at the same time as the other elementary schools. The District Office Boardroom will be our location and we plan to have a couple small tents outside in order to offer some lemonade and cookies.

We will be sending out a mailer to all families residing in the SCES attendance zone in the next week to begin letting parents know of this change. We will also utilize a variety of ways to communicate this change in venue for SCES registration! The school will be ready to welcome students on August 15, 2016...that will not change! :)

School-Wide Theme for 2016-2017

"Planting Seeds of Knowledge that Last a Lifetime" --- this plays off of our "Thumbprint Tree" that we began at the family night events back in March. Thank you for the many suggestions that you provided...Be creative and have fun with it!
