***Way to go Third Grade Mustangs! We are so proud of our third graders and the effort they showed on their state assessments this week. They were definitely ready to tackle the SC Ready test. We look forward to finishing out our third grade year being even more prepared for fourth grade as we continue our learning together. We have a solid foundation upon which to build over these next few weeks ahead!
