Losing PASS Test Challenge Gets "Hairy"

On Friday, August 30, 2014, Principal Charles Gregory and middle school social studies teacher Mark Bagwell were forced to hold up their end of a bargain made in the spring of 2014. If the 8th graders earned 80% or better on the PASS social studies test, the principal and Mr. Bagwell agreed to shave their heads. 

Obviously, the 8th graders won this round! 




Cross Country                    

 Our Boys and Girls Cross Country Runners competed in their first meet of the season Saturday, September 6, 2014, with runners from 5 other schools, including host Gilbert High.  Qu'Essence Gillison was the runaway winner of the girls' race finishing almost 2 minutes of the 2nd place runner.  Jason Brinson  was the top runner for our boys running the 3.1 mile course in just over 22 minutes.  Seventh grade brother Connor Brinson finished his first Cross Country Race ever with an excellent time of 27:21.  Eugene Peele and Garrett Saborosch also ran their 1st Cross Country races and both finished in under 25 mins.  Two of our senior runners, Zhanae Nimmons and Larry Bloome, ran very well, with Larry competing in the race just 11 hours after playing in our varsity football's team victory over Bowman the night before.  Upcoming meets include a trip to Santee and Edisto Gardens for meets hosted by Calhoun Academy and Orangeburg Prep.



Changes in 11th Grade Testing

Beginning this school year, the HSAP will no longer be given in South Carolina.

This school year marks the beginning of important changes in state testing for all 11th graders in South Carolina. For the first time, students in the 11th grade will take two assessments -- one a college and career readiness assessment(that has not been selected) and another, WorkKeys®, that measures essential workforce skills.

         Summer Reading 2014 

 The Summer Reading Program is designed to foster enjoyment of reading, to expose students to a variety of genres, and to encourage independent reading. It is intended to help students maintain the reading proficiencies acquired during the school year. Students entering 6th-10th grades should read at least two books from the summer reading list that they have NOT previously read. Students are strongly encouraged to keep a chapter log of their reading in preparation for assigned Book Talks, Accelerated Reader quizzes and any possible writing assignments that may be required. Most books on this list can be found at local public libraries and book stores. Every student will receive a copy of the list before summer break and lists will be mailed home with report cards. *Assignments for 6th-10th graders will be due in early September. Specific dates will be determined by the grade-level English teacher.
