Planting the Seeds of 16-17

Well after the announcement on Friday, I hope that you are all excited about our visit in October. We are going to begin our work with Ron Clark slowly.

HIs book the Essential 55 starts with basic, respectful mannerism. These are mannerisms that many of us have had a conversation about know that we feel are being lost. For example, rule 2, making eye contact with the speaker. One thing that you will notice at the academy is that the students KNOW the essentials and put them into practice each day, but another thing that you will notice IS THAT THEY ARE MODELED FOR THEM!

So let's begin.....I think you will enjoy this book!

Need to Know News

Field Day Reminders

Please remind students about proper attire on field day, especially their shoes. Students will need to wear tennis shoes to participate. The coaches are also encouraging them to bring water bottles with them to carry around that day.


Please take the time to let our PTA know how much you appreciate their efforts from last week. Many of them were here almost everyday volunteering. From delivering breakfast to delivering picnic tables. A lot of work was put into last week. A thank you card, in their box, will go a long way.

Greenville Drive Vouchers

We sent home tickets vouchers for those students that participated in the Drive reading program on Monday. Parents will need to trade in their vouchers for a ticket. The best seats go to the ones that trade in their vouchers first. If you can include this on your communications to parents that would be great. I will ensure it is on the phone message home.

Due this Week

All conferences sheets for SLA, SRC, and Retention need to be turned into the office Monday.

3rd Grade Career A and Attendance due to Leonard on Monday

DRA information due to Galloway on Friday

Grades Due Friday-Please make sure that you have given enough assessments and classwork grade to give students a fair opportunity.


Lunch Menus will now be digital. Parents are able to download an app that will allow them to check daily menus. The app is titled NurtiSlice. Parents will search for Spartanburg District Two. They will have the option to choose elementary, middle, or high school. Once you have selected the school, parents will be able to view the breakfast or lunch menu.

Parents are also able to pay their lunch bill online. I have include a link below titled "Pay your Lunch Bill" below.
