CES Wins Arts Grant!
We have been awarded the Distinguished Arts Planning (DAP) grant from the SC Dept of Education, again this year! Part of these funds will go to Professional Development for teachers and two week-long residencies with a Dance and Theatre artist. If you would like to be a part of the grant steering committee, please contact Mrs. McDonald at Aregina.firstname.lastname@example.org. Creativity abounds at CESCA!
¨ Let your child know homework is a top priority
¨ Set up a specific time for homework and keep distractions to a minimum
¨ Pick a quiet study area with supplies such as paper and pencils nearby.
¨ Review homework directions with your child
¨ Be available for questions, but allow your child to be responsible for their own work.
¨ Look over finished assignments to see that the work has been completed.
I think that you all would be in agreement with me that we are ready for Spring to spring!! We appreciate all of your patience through all of the weather accommodations that we have made in order to ensure that all of our students of Kershaw County are safe.
As we draw closer to our April Writing and ELA ACT Aspire testing in April, I would invite you to visit the South Carolina State Department website to see the format of the tests. http://ed.sc.gov/agency/programs-services/214/ACTAspireSampleAnswerDocuments.cfm
We have had writing prompts all school year to prepare our children for the first leg of ACT Aspire testing. This is new for all of us, and I believe that we will all be well prepared. Thank you for all that you do, and if you are willing to help monitor for our April testing dates, April 28-April 30, 2015, please give us a call!!
