Middle School Weekly Newsletter

A Note from Mrs. Patterson

We have made it to SPRING BREAK!!

I truly hope that you get to enjoy some rest and relaxation next week. I will not be in the office, however I will check emails periodically, so just reach out by email if you need me. The office will be closed and our teachers and counselors will not be available.

I will send a newsletter next Friday to take us into the next week, but please remember that we will conduct iReady testing on Tuesday, April 18th and Tuesday, April 25th. I'll send more details about that when the time comes.

Testing schedules for SC Ready/PASS and EOC will be coming out next week in an email. We will host a parent information session regarding state testing on April 18th at 7pm. You can access that session from the link below.


Enjoy your weekend and your week off!

Jigsaw and Google

Students, please make sure you are using your SCVCS gmail account when logging into Jigsaw and when you do anything with Google Drive. Some of you are using personal email accounts, which will cause you some issues with accessing live classes or completing assignments using Google. If you need assistance with your Gmail accounts, please contact our tech support at 803-253-6222 and choose Option 5.

Online enrollment for current students to re-register for the 2023-2024 school year must be completed to secure your spot. Please log into your PowerSchool Parent Portal at this link: https://cie.powerschool.com/public/home.html and use your parent login – if you log in as the student you will not see the Intent to Return link. The link for Intent to Return is all the way at the bottom of the left side of the screen.

If your student will not be returning to SCVCS, please complete the form by answering "No" to the first question. This allows us to open seats for additional students as we plan for next year.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance by contacting our office at 803-253-6222 option 3, emailing us at enrollment@scvcs.org, or you can visit our website at www.scvcs.org.


If you are a current 6th or 7th grader and you will be returning to SCVCS for the 2023-2024 school year, it is time to begin making your course selections!

If you attended our March 10th Town Hall meeting, I discussed this process at great length. If you'd like to view that session, you can get the recording at the link below. Note that the information about Course Selection begins at the 17:18 minute mark.


In order to select your courses, you must first be re-registered with SCVCS for the 2023-2024 school year. If you need assistance with re-registration, please contact enrollment@scvcs.org for assistance.

Once you have completed that process, you can complete the Course Selection form. Begin by reviewing the Course Selection information by clicking HERE.

Once you are ready to select courses, click the link to the Course Selection form within that document to select courses. If you have any questions, please contact your Counselor.
