Honor Academic Reception

On Tuesday evening, May 3rd, Springdale Elementary School held its annual Honor Academic Reception at the Airport High School auditorium.  All of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students that retained A's and B's for the entire year were honored in a pinning ceremony.  
Our guest speaker was a former Springdale student, 
Miss Liza Powers, who is a senior at Airport High School.  She will be graduating this year in the top 1% of her class and will be attending Presbyterian College. She inspired all in attendance with her speech focusing on "I'm Possible"!  The students were enthralled! 
 Thank you so much, Liza, for inspiring us all!

On Monday, April 25th, Springdale Elementary held its 
7th Annual Fund Run.  The students worked extremely hard and raised $14,300.00.  Our overall Fund Run Winner for raising the most funds, was Amber Rayfield from Mrs. Mills/Mrs. O'Neal's K5 class.

WE HAVE SEVERAL IMPORTANT ITEMS that we would like you to view BELOW:
____________

School Improvement Council (SIC)

Springdale Elementary is seeking nominations for one parent representative to serve a two year term starting in the 2016-2017 school year. Parents can nominate themselves or be nominated by other parents.

Parent Nomination for SIC

 ____________



Teacher Requests for the 2016-2017 School Year


Please be aware that we no longer accept specific requests for teachers by

 name.  Parents are invited to state the qualities that they believe a teacher should possess in order for their child to succeed in school.  

We will review a written request before making final placement.


    At the end of this year, each grade level and the Principal prepares possible grade rosters, balancing achievement levels of students and behavioral needs of students.  Before class rosters are made final, some students may be moved in order to achieve the appropriate balance, based on knowledge that we might have, regarding individual students.  We then assign a teacher to each of the classes, attempting to match teaching styles with learning styles. 


    All requests must be submitted, in writing, to Mrs. Hope Vrana's attention (hvrana@lex2.org)      


by Friday, May 6, 2016


**Any requests that come in with a specific teacher, requested by name, will be placed in a file and will not be considered.

_________

EOC Parent Survey


In 2014, the SC General Assembly passed legislation requiring the SC Education Oversight Committee (EOC) to recommend a model education accountability system that meets both federal and state requirements.

 

The committee and staff are asking for parent feedback to help them in this process. The online survey should only take a few minutes, and it will provide valuable feedback to the EOC as well as the SC General Assembly. The survey will close on April 28, so if you could take a few minutes to complete it before then, please do so! 


The survey can be access by the using the following link:
