Anderson Mill Elementary Weekly Newsletter

Congratulations to Maggie Thompson - AMES TK of the Year!

Each month we host a Terrific Kid breakfast to honor students that are consistently showing good character in their classroom. The program is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Spartanburg and Zaxby's. In the spring, the teachers nominate one child from each elementary school to be recognized as the Terrific Kid of the Year. This year's recipient of this award is fifth grader, Maggie Thompson. Way to go Maggie!

Faculty Meeting this Week

Our faculty meeting this week will be a "Round Robin" style professional development session. Our teachers will present information they have gained through conferences this year. Looking forward to a great event!
