The biggest change that our students will notice is that each Aspire subtest has a time limit. Students will be tested for approximately one hour per day, and the writing test must be completed in 30 minutes. Some students may not finish before they must stop working and turn in their tests. Our students are more familiar with the SCPASS tests, which have no specific time limits. Teachers are currently providing practice for students so that they will become more comfortable with the timed tests. The two different science tests will allow us to assess our students’ knowledge of the South Carolina science standards while still being able to compare our students’ achievement with their peers nationally.
4th and 5th Grade: count every 100 pages as a book
Once the student turns in 25 books the student's photo will be placed on out Team Read board. Every additional 25 books read the student will earn a sticker to put by their photo on the Team Read Board.
The program will begin in the second nine weeks and run through May 2015. We hope each family will encourage their child to take part in this challenge and benefit from reading on a regular basis.

SchoolFusion Parent Guide
To create a parent account, you will need the student id# for each student and birthdate. The birthdate should be keyed in with no leading zero or dashes.
Afternoon Car Line: The left-hand car lane in the afternoon cannot be blocked until 2:00. You may start parking in that lane at 2:00. Parents should be in their car no later than 2:35 or 2:40 pm. At approximately 2:45, we will take students who have not been picked up inside the building. Once inside the building, parents will need to park and come in to sign out their child.
If your child/children miss their name when it is announced, and are not at the correct pole on time, your car/carpool will be asked to pull forward beyond pole 1. This is so the car line can continue efficiently and the next 10 cars are in place simultaneously. Names are announced and then often teachers repeat names again. He or she can also ask any teacher about their pole number on the way out the PE door.
