Elementary and middle school parents should have received an email this past week that will allow you to provide feedback on the proposals. If you are a middle or elementary school parent and do not receive an email by Oct. 10, please verify your contact information with our PowerSchool clerk, Sharlene James (jamess@fortmillschools.org).

The feedback period will remain open until 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 17. At that time, we will review the feedback for consideration in the administration’s recommendation to the Board of Trustees for first reading at the Tuesday, October 22 meeting.

The recommendation will have second reading and be considered for approval at the November 5 school board meeting.

Titan Nation-Up for a Friendly FM District Challenge... I know we can win!!!

As you may/may not know, the district launched an official district app on the first day of school this year. The app provides quick access to tools including the tip line, important school and district information, calendars, Peachjar, menus, and more. This app also allows you the ability to “follow” individual schools.

The district is running a district-wide competition beginning Monday, September 23 and will run until October 31 to see which school can get the most parent follows. Parents will need to both download the app and select your school to follow. A prize will be given to one school with the most followers at each level– elementary, middle, and high school.

We only get votes if you download and follow Tega Cay Elementary. If you have children at multiple schools, you can follow that school too!

The winners will announce the winner the first week of November.

Can you help Tega Cay win??? Download today!
