The House Council is a school-wide reward system for student behavior throughout the school year. Each of our students have been placed into one of the houses below:
ESPERANZA / TUWOHOFO / SIMBA / JOYEUX

As students work throughout the day on following directions, procedures, expectations, and following New Prospect’s Elite Eight, the teacher will reward them with House Points. The House that gains the most points throughout each week will be announced. The House that gains the most points for the month will be invited to a special celebration.

United Way campaign

I am excited to introduce a great opportunity for you to give to United Way. United Way is an organization that focuses on raising money to help local agencies help those in need right here in Anderson, SC. We have been given the task of working to raise $2,000.00 as a school, and with the generous hearts of our staff and students, I have no doubt we will reach and exceed this goal. Regardless of this fact, we should make it fun!

October Teacher of the Month

We want to send a big congratulations to 2nd Grade teacher Jessica Brown for being honored as our Teacher of the Month!

Breakfast in the classroom

The school day begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. If you drive your child to school, please arrive by 7:45. This will allow ample time for him/her to get settled in the room before the start of school. Students who plan to eat breakfast need to be seated in the homeroom by 7:55. Breakfast closes at 8:00. All students are expected to be in their room by 8:00. This allows us the opportunity to start our instructional day at 8:00.


The doors will close PROMPTLY for students at 7:57 in order for them to be in their classroom by 8:00 AM. If you are in the car line before 7:57, but your child does not make it to the door before it closes at 7:57, then you must come to the front office and sign your child in. We will use Time.gov so please refer to that time.
