As the principal, I thoroughly enjoy getting to know you and your children. I have an open door policy and would be happy to talk with you concerning suggestions, problems, and positive experiences. 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 wjacobs@acpsd.net 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!
 
Ms. Wendy S. Jacobs, Principal
Ms. Felicia Walters, Assistant Principal

Original Works Program


We are pleased to announce that during the month of October, we will be running the Original Works Program at North Augusta Elementary School.
 
Through the Original Works program, each child will have the opportunity to have their very own artwork reproduced onto a variety of high quality products. The products range from magnets, mugs and mouse pads, to ceramic tiles, t-shirts, note cards and nearly two-dozen other products. The resulting products make unique gifts that are practical for any season or occasion.
 
Your student’s artwork, product catalog and order form will be sent home the week of October 20th with orders due back to Mrs. Thompson in the Art room no later than Friday, October 31st. Proceeds from the program will be used to purchase art supplies for the Art room at NAES. Placing an order is optional. For more information on Original Works please visit their website at www.originalworks.com.
 
Thank you for your support!
