Titan Tidbits - Parents

August Edition

General Announcements






  • Transportation Bus Routes will be available at Meet the Teacher (table located in the Media Center). Please check back HERE for the latest information. If you have specific questions between now and then, the transportation department can be reached by calling 803-802-1998.

Student's Placement

Teacher Placement

Teacher placement information will be sent electronically on Friday, August 9th. Each teacher placement will be sent electronically throughout the day. Not all families will receive their student’s placement at the exact same time. You will receive your child’s homeroom teacher placement. In grades 3rd-5th, your child may have a different English Language Arts/Math teacher (you will receive this as well).


I know that finding out your child’s teacher is exciting! I encourage parents to be respectful of our staff and limit your social media postings to only positive comments. Asking others questions or sharing opinions on social media about specific teachers can be hurtful. Remember that our staff is committed to helping our young Titans achieve success both academically and emotionally, so I ask that you show kindness and respect as teacher placements are shared.

Meet the Teacher

Parking: I am encouraging everyone to walk from your home/Trailhead or carpool if possible as parking will be a challenge.


Meet the Teacher for Kindergarten will take place on August 15th from 8-9:30 am (There will be two sessions offered... your child's teacher will communicate more about this once placement goes out). If you cannot be in attendance at that session, please email your child's teacher once placement is received to let him/her know your child's transportation home the first day of school AND your child's t-shirt size for Boosterthon (there is not a cost for these).


Meet the Teacher Drop-In for Grades 1st-5th will be on Thursday, August 15th from 3-5 pm. Doors will open promptly at 3 and close promptly at 5pm. If you cannot be in attendance that night, please email your child's teacher once placement is received to let him/her your know child's transportation home the first day of school AND your child's t-shirt size for Boosterthon (there is not a cost for these).
