Hello Patriots! I hope you have a great weekend! This week we had a great week recognizing students for academic and behavioral excellence! We had over 900 students attend our 1st Quarter On-A-Roll Celebration for academic excellence, and we recognized over 400 students with Pride referrals for modeling Patriot Pride. This upcoming week, we will have our Chick-Fil-A student of the Month celebration Tuesday. Wednesday start our Thanksgiving break, and we hope all of our Patriots enjoy time off with family and friends as we reflect about what we are thankful for in life.

Hello Patriots,

Congrats Football!
I hope you have a great weekend!  Due to weather this week, we had to postpone our 1st Quarter On-A-Roll Celebration to Monday. Monday we will celebrate the academic success of over 800 students. All students on the A/B Honor Roll will be invited to attend, and each teacher has a special invitation ticket to give to a student of their choice that isn't on the Honor Roll but that teacher feels deserves to go because they work hard each day representing Patriot PRIDE. Students will enjoy pizza, music, inflatable jump castles/slides, games, and more! Keep up the hard work Patriots! Please scroll all the way down to see all updates and announcements for the upcoming week. 

Tuesday is College Application Day. Students who signed up will attend the event hosted by guidance. We are also asking all students and teachers to wear a shirt representing their college/university. Teachers will be asked to discuss their college experiences and take questions from students.

Cheer qualifies for State!
Next Friday and Saturday is the BBQ festival at The Fort. Come out on November 17 and 18 to sample the very best SC has to offer!  We’ll have vendors selling gifts and great raffle items and it’s all to help Camp Happy Days!  Camp Happy Days is a local group that helps kids who have been diagnosed with cancer.  Come on out the weekend of 17th and 18th and enjoy yourself while helping us raise
