Welcome!
 
A note from Mrs. Wilson…
Dear Families and Friends of North Augusta Elementary School,
     As we move into the final weeks of the 2015-2016 school year I want to invite you to come into our school and see the incredible learning which is taking place.  Our students and teachers are working hard and I am amazed daily at the many ways our students are demonstrating their knowledge. 

Over the next few weeks we will be completing our state testing in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades.  This year we have a new test, SC READY.  A letter went home before Spring Break with information for the families in these grades but you may also read about it on the SC Department of Education website (sc.ed.gov). 
The dates of testing are:

     State Testing (Grades 3, 4, & 5)
     April 26 - SC Ready Writing
     April 27 - SC Ready Reading
     April 28 - SC Ready Math
     
     SC PASS Testing for 4th & 5th grades will be completed on-line; therefore, the dates will vary by class.   Please see the notice sent home with you child for his/her class's dates.

Reading 15 to 20 minutes a day will keep you on your game for the next school year!  Mark each day during June, July, and August you spend time reading with an “X” and have your parents sign your chart. Bring your completed reading chart to North Augusta Elementary School and turn it in to your teacher by September 2, 2016.  Students who turn in their reading chart will be entered into a drawing to win prizes!

PARENTS:  Research has consistently documented the importance of summer reading. Students who read recreationally during the summer do better when the new school year begins. Studies show that students who do not read during the summer show a significant loss over the summer break. Research has shown that reading just four or five books during the summer can prevent this achievement and learning loss.  The purpose of North Augusta Elementary School’s Summer Reading Challenge is to encourage students to engage in self-selected recreational summer reading to prevent learning loss and to foster improved student achievement. 

 

Important Dates


July 27, 2016  -  Registration - 8:00 am - 4 pm
August 2, 2016 -  Registration  - 12:00 pm - 7 pm

 
 

Golden Harvest Food Bank’s Backpack Buddy 

Many school children go home to meager or no meals on weekends. The Golden Harvest Food Bank’s Backpack Buddy program works to fill that gap.

On Fridays, at our school and other locations, children take home child-friendly, nonperishable, easily consumed and vitamin-fortified food.

The food is given to the children discreetly, to avoid inviting unwanted attention.

For every $5 you donate, one child will receive a weekend meal pack containing nutritious food and snacks to help them get through the weekend.

Would you like to sponsor a Backpack Buddy through the Golden Harvest Food Bank?
Gifts of any amount are welcome. Please click the link below or if you send in a check to Golden Harvest Food Bank please write North Augusta Elementary Backpack Buddy Program on the check!  
 

Thank you for your support!
