Announcements

Wednesday January 19th will be an eLearning Day

Greenville County Schools announced Wednesday Janaury 19th will be an eLearning day.   Please read the following message from our principal, Mrs. Bohnenberger. 

Parents and Students, 

We are impressed with the number of students who showed up for our Google Meet live sessions today and actively participated. Many of our students showed up and completed their assignments. We will follow the same schedule as we did today for Wednesday’s eLearning. If you had any issues signing into your classes or reaching your teachers, then please email your grade level administrator or counselor so we are able to ensure everyone has access to learning while we are not in the building.

Mrs. Bohnenberger will be communicating with staff to readjust the school calendar and inform parents and students of rescheduled testing dates and other important dates that are affected by this building closure. This and other information will be shared through the weekly bulletin sent via backpack.

We hope everyone stays safe!

Advocates for Character and Education (ACE) Award Nominations Now Open

The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to 74 male and female students from each of the 37 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school. If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please submit a nomination at www.coaches4character.com/ace-awards. All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2022. An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County. All ACE award recipients will be recognized at a live stream ACE Awards ceremony in the spring.

 


Clemson's MAT Middle and Secondary Program: For Career Changers

Clemson University’s College of Education is excited to announce that we are re-launching our Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program in middle level and secondary education. This fully online program provides a unique opportunity for individuals seeking to change careers and enter the teaching profession but cannot leave their jobs or responsibilities in their current community to move to Clemson and pursue their degree. This program is for individuals who want to enter the teaching profession in one of the following areas:

Middle Level Education

Secondary Education

Applications are open now, and our first cohort of students will start in Fall 2022. We are eager to enroll students from across the state in this online program. We will need partnerships with districts like yours to create student teaching/internship placements to support this program.

Under the S.C. Department of Education Internship Certificate Guidelines, students from our program will have the opportunity to work as a teacher of record while completing their degrees. The Internship Certificate allows a school district to employ an eligible pre-service candidate as a teacher of record while the candidate completes all student teaching requirements of Clemson University's College of Education. This provision helps districts support new teachers and fill open positions at their schools.
