From the Principal

I know you are, and so are the teachers and staff. We want you to have the best summer ever. I hope you will get to do lots of cool stuff this summer and enjoy everyday.
Please remember that to ready for school in August, you have to read everyday. Take advantage of those wonderful books you received and read, read, read.
Students who read all summer and turn in the summer reading logs will get to attend our Summer Reading Bash when we return to school in August. Don't miss the fun.
Parents, if you are moving into our school zone for next year, please have your students read and you can come by and pick up a reading log if you need one, or you can keep your own log. Just record how many minutes your students read each day. We ask for them to read between 20-30 minutes each day and they can read anything they enjoy.
Wednesday, July 30 is registration from 9:00-1:00 and 3:00-6:00. It is so important for you to attend registration. If you know you will be out of town, please make arrangements with our attendance clerk to register.
The office will be open Monday-Thursday from 8:00-5:00 during the summer.

School starts back on Monday, August 18.

Daily Announcements

eChalk Parent Accounts

Parents of elementary school students can register for an eChalk Parent Account at http://bes.kcsdschools.com/parents/register.  (All parents must create a new account for the 2013-14 School Year.)

Middle & high school students require a District ID number, which you will receive in a letter from the school that will be sent home soon.  This information will allow parents to access the student's homework schedule and view class pages directly.

Additional information on eChalk Parent Accounts - including a video walk-through - are available on the district website at www.kershaw.k12.sc.us/district/instruction/echalk.


We have a new procedure for our students arriving and departing by car. If your children are "car riders," it is very important that you review the attached document.
