Online Registration Process

All parents/guardians are encouraged to complete online registration prior to August 6. Please visit https://update.pickens.k12.sc.us to register online. Login information can be found on your child's final report card. This information was also emailed out by SDPC on July 16th. The password for online registration will be your student's date of birth in the following format: mm/dd/yyyy. Online fees can be paid at www.myschoolbucks.com . If you have any questions please call the main office at (864) 397-4100.


Also, the parent agreement for technology is part of the Registration Gateway; however, you may review the policy by clicking on the "Tech It Home" link below.


If you complete the four links below, you can simply pick up your schedule on August 6th and attend the parent meeting! Please be aware that everything but the fee will have to be resolved online on your own or when you come to the school. This will be the final year we will accept payments at the school for the technology fee. The online payment with My School Bucks will allow you to skip the line. Let us know if we can help.

Pickens Middle Athletics

Sparks' athletic teams are starting practice and tryouts very soon. Unfortunately, 6th graders aren't able to participate until they become 7th graders; however, 6th graders can be equipment managers. Please contact our football coach, Gary Roberson, at garyroberson@pickens.k12.sc.us or our head volleyball coach, Mellie Crumpton, at coachcrumpton@gmail.com if anyone is interested in being an equipment manager.


SPARK Nation!!

Although 6th graders cannot participate in athletics, they are still a vital part of SPARK NATION! We want our entire student body to show lots of school spirit and support all facets of school life.
