At-Home Learning Assignments
Mrs. Norcia and our wonderful Guidance Department have put together some schedules for our students to attempt to follow while they are completing their At-Home Learning Assignments. We are hoping the structure and organization will help the students to stay focused, on task, and help get the assignments completed in a timely manner. Please check out the appropriate grade level attachment.
We know this is tough, but we will make it through this TOGETHER!!!
Festival of the Arts is taking over Kingsley!!!
7th Grade Band - 2:00
8th Grade Band - 3:00
8th Grade Honors Chorus - 4:00
This is the first time Gold Hill has tried something like this, and it is just another example of how our great staff refuses to let COVID stop us from doing what we do!!! We want to celebrate our students and their skills, talents, and accomplishments. A special thank you to Mrs. Isenhour and Mr. Welch for thinking outside (literally) the box and setting this event up. You are both truly inspiring!
Basketball Season is Coming...
Both the boys' and girls' teams have been finalized. Congratulations to everyone who made the team. Special shout out to everyone who tried out. It takes a lot of courage to try out for a team, and we applaud everyone's effort.
The teams are hard at work getting ready for the upcoming season. Games will be on Monday's and Thursday's, with our first game coming on Thursday, December 3rd.
Parents of our basketball, cheer and dance teams - Please be on the lookout for an email involving purchasing season passes. Coach Hamilton and I have been looking at creative ways that we can accommodate all of our athletes and families safely.
Unfortunately, students will not be able to attend the basketball games due to the limited space.

Missing Library Books
Did you know that students can return library books to ANY of the Fort Mill Schools?
The Fort Mill School District Libraries are still missing lots of library books from last year. Please search your shelves for books with a FMSD barcode and return books to your current school librarian. We can then transfer the books back to the proper school.
