If you just drop by, I will do my best to speak to you, but making an appointment will ensure that I can sit down and discuss your concerns with you. If you have a simple question, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to respond within 24 hours.
Our office hours are from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and our school telephone number is 803-442-6280.
Always know that your children and their education and safety are my top priority. We are going to have a great year!

New Testing Information for the 2014-2015 School Year!
This past summer the S. C. Legislature changed the state testing program. A new test called Aspire will be given in grades 3 through 8 to test reading, writing, English, math, and science. Students in grades 4-8 will continue to take the SCPASS tests for science and social studies. The Aspire tests will be given on April 28 through May 1, and the two SCPASS tests will be administered on May 7 and 8, 2015.
A SchoolFusion Parent Account allows parents to view all of their children’s classroom information in one web location. Parents can check assignments, view important deadlines on FusionPage calendars, follow their children's sports calendars, school events and much more!
Once parents have created an account email notifications will be sent when new announcements and assignments are added. Only parents/guardians of students enrolled in Aiken County Public School District are allowed to register.
