  • School Cancellation: School will be closed tomorrow, September 14, due to the threat of severe weather from Hurricane Florence. Please be safe and take care tomorrow and over the weekend!
  • Pelican's School Spirit Night Postponed: Our Pelican's spirit night was originally scheduled for tonight. It has been postponed until next Thursday, September 20, due to uncertain weather for this evening.
  • Welcome Mrs. Sova!: Mrs. Jennifer Sova is our new nurse, and she started on Monday, September 10. She has several years of experience working in pediatrics, and we know she will do a great job for our students.
  • Boosterthon: The PTA's annual fundraiser, Boosterthon, will kick off on Tuesday, September 18, with pep rallies for our students. Our FunRuns this year will be on Thursday, September 27. The FunRun times for grade levels will be as follows: 8:00 am - 2nd & 3rd grade, 9:05 am - Kindergarten & 1st Grade, and 10:15 for 4th & 5th grade. This years funds will be going towards instructional materials, school-wide programs and assemblies, an electronic marquee, and supporting family fun nights.
  • Morning Car Rider Drop-Off: With an increase in student enrollment and traffic in Fort Mill, I want to share a few reminders to help make everyone's morning car rider drop-off more efficient.
  • Our doors open at 7:10 am for students to enter the school building.
  • Cars need to pull up as far as possible around our drop off area to maximize the number of cars we can allow to drop off at one time. Please do not stop in front of the front doors leaving spaces in front of you.
  • Students should not walk from a parked vehicle from the parking lot to the school or cross the drive on their own. Whoever is dropping off the child must walk them to the red line at the beginning of our drop-off line or walk them to the front doors. We want to keep students as safe as possible.
  • Instruction begins at 7:40, so all staff will enter the building at that time. Students who arrive after 7:40 are considered tardy and will have to be walked into the building by a parent to sign them in.
