Welcome to another school year at Augusta Circle. I hope you and your families had a wonderful summer. I am excited
to begin my second year at ACE. Thank you for all of your support during my first year. I am looking forward to working
with your children this year and continuing our excellent traditions.
I would like to welcome the following new staff members to ACE: Caroline Reynolds, Kindergarten; Maddie Gonzalez,
Third Grade; Grace Trail, Third Grade; Ashley McCollum, Fifth Grade; Kirsten McCollough, Third Grade Aide; Hunter Fridy,
Office Clerk and Sydney Parker, Lab Instructional Aide.
Please refer to the updated ACE parent-student handbook on our school website to read about school and district
policies and procedures. Many procedures have been updated and further explained. If you would like a paper copy of
the handbook, please contact the office.
Arrival reminders: All students will enter through the front office door each morning. We will have staff members and
student leaders to help get younger students to their morning holding locations. Please do not drop off students by the
loading dock on Wacammaw or across the street on Wacammaw. This is very dangerous.
Dismissal reminders: All K5 & 1st grade students that are walkers must be released to a designated adult or student
designee that is in the 4th or 5th grade. Parents or designees must meet the teacher at the gate by the cottage with their
student dismissal number. These will be distributed at Meet the Teacher. Students will not be released without a
designee. This is for your child’s safety.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone number is 864-355-1200. I am looking forward to a great school year!
