Fountain Inn Elementary along with PTA will be hosting a “Meet and Greet” reception for our new principal, Mr. Tony Reabold, on May 11 at 6pm. The reception will be held in the Cafeteria immediately following a brief PTA meeting.
Mr. Reabold currently serves as the Federal Programs Director for a school system in Georgia. All his other twenty-eight years have been spent at the elementary school level. He served sixteen years as a principal, five as an assistant principal, and has seven years of teaching experience.
He and his wife, Martha, will celebrate their thirty-first wedding anniversary in August. She works for South State Bank in Greenville. They have two sons, newly engaged Geoffrey, who lives and works in the Greenville area and Greg who is a junior in the Terry College of Business at the Univ. of Georgia.
Mr. Reabold cherishes the time he has with his family. He also enjoys exercising and being outdoors, especially in and around water, as well as reading and playing with his dog, Baxter.
He is thrilled to be joining the FIE family and cannot wait to get started here full-time.
Let's give Mr. Reabold a warm Fountain Inn welcome.
Three new tests - ACT Aspire, ACT WorkKeys and The ACT College Readiness Test – will be administered this spring to South Carolina public school students. Other tests given in previous years, such as SCPASS for science and social studies in grades 4-8 and end-of-course exams for high school courses, remain the same.
The three new tests will help teachers understand where students are succeeding and where extra help and/or academic focus are needed. Accommodations are provided for students with special needs.
Testing Tips for Students
- Get plenty of rest the night before the test, and eat a healthy breakfast on the day of testing.
- Follow directions exactly, and ask questions if unsure.
- Go back and review responses if you finish the test with time to spare.
- No electronic communications devices, including cell phones, are allowed during testing.
Grades Tested: 3-8
Testing Dates: Tuesday, April 28 – Thursday, April 30
ACT Aspire will be administered to students in grades 3-8 for English, reading, writing and mathematics, except for students who qualify for the South Carolina Alternate Assessment (NCSC). The ACT Aspire is a timed test and will be paper-based this year. The ACT Aspire is aligned to state standards and lessons taught in public school classrooms.
Aspire is linked to the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards, connecting a student’s score to specific skills and knowledge needed later for college and work success. The test also relates a child’s academic progress from one grade to the next grade.
