LIGHT IT UP GOLD at Kings Town Elementary

This Thursday, September 24 and Friday, September 25, we are asking all students and staff to wear GOLD or YELLOW to show support for children with cancer and their families. If you take pictures of your student(s) dressed in gold or yellow, please email them to Ms. Bailey at

If you would like to help support children with cancer, please consider donating the following NEW items for Levine’s Children Hospital.

  • Puzzles

  • Colorful & Character Band-Aids

  • Play Doh

  • Crayons & Markers

We will accept donations of these new items through Wednesday, September 30. If you are a virtual student but you would like to donate, please feel free to come to the school and leave your donation with Mrs. Morris, our school receptionist.


It's time for the KTES Fun Run Fundraiser (for in person students).

***As a reminder, virtual students...the fundraiser kicks off a little later for you (October 14), but all proceeds will still come to KTES. You will receive additional information a little later in the week***

Here are a few things to know:

• All students get to participate in the Event day, regardless of financial

• We are bringing our school community together for some FUN!

• We are inspiring our students to be active and activate their character

As we are collecting funds for books and playground improvements for our school, we thought it would be so much fun to have a spirit week as well. Please review the graphic below for the theme for each day! We will take pictures throughout the week and post them to our social media sites. It's going to be a great week!

School Improvement Council

In South Carolina, a School Improvement Council is an advisory council to the principal and school on issues related to school improvement. By law, every K-12 public school in South Carolina must have an SIC that is made up of parent, teacher, and community member representatives. The SIC meets once a month (virtually) to discuss pertinent issues, hear from district level speakers, review and edit the School Improvement Plan and provides input on budget requests. If you or someone you know is interested in serving on the SIC, please complete the Google form below. The deadline is Friday, September 25th at 3pm.

Have a Terrific Week!
