In order to provide our students with the best testing environment, the school building is closed to parents, volunteers and visitors until all testing has been completed for the day.  Due to some staggered start times, ACT Aspire testing will not end until approximately 12:30 p.m.  If you are planning to come to school after 12:30 p.m., please call the school office to verify that testing is over for the day. Thank you for your cooperation.

Monarch's Educational Extenders (Extended Day Program)

Learn more... | EDP Application

Applications for students currently in EDP will be accepted the week of April 6-10, 2015. Open enrollment will start on April 13th for all others on a first come, first serve basis. The purpose of our program is to provide quality, convenient and affordable care for our elementary-age students after school.  The Extended Day Program operates in the school facilities.  Each afternoon, the students enjoy a snack, do homework and participate in organized activities.  Program hours are from 2:30 – 6:00 pm on school days only.  When school is not in session or when there is a half day, the Extended Day Program will not operate.  All students must be picked up by  6:00 pm to avoid a late-pickup charge.  Repeated late pickups can result in dismissal from our program.


For the second year, a Monarch student has been selected as the South Carolina PTA Student of the Year!
