RCMS Giving Tree 2021 Items Due by 12/9/21

We still have a lot of items left on our giving tree this year. Please consider ordering an item or two from the Wish List in order to help us achieve our goal. We are asking that all items be in by December the 9th. We had many students in need that needed our assistance this year. Thank you in advance for your help.


8th Grade ACE Award Nominations Open!

ACE Award logoThe ACE Award is an annual award given to one male and one female RCMS student and is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments.  The selection process focuses on identifying and selecting unrecognized students who have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.

If you would like to nominate a Ralph Chandler 8th grader, please submit your nomination HERE.  (Paper nomination forms are available at each school as well.)  All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2022.  An ACE Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Lamb.


Sexual Health and Responsibility Education Unit

Sexual Health and Responsibility Education Unit will be taught December 6th-December 17th to students currently enrolled in PE.  Complete details of the district’s age-appropriate, abstinence-based sexual health & responsibility education curriculum can be previewed at the school at any time if you would like to view it. If you do not want your child to participate in the sexual health & responsibility education class or a specific portion of the class, you must bring the exemption form (linked HERE) to the front office in person. By School Board Policy and SC Comprehensive Health Education Law, students who exempt sexual health & responsibility education will be required to complete other health-related self-study lessons.


Students Starting Kindergarten or First Grade Next Year?

If your child is starting kindergarten or first grade next year, we need your help! It’s extremely important that you enroll your child between December 6-10 to ensure we have enough teachers on the first day of school. If you register on those days, you will be entered to win a pair of Ice on Main tickets! Yes, we are already planning for the fall of 2022! Visit the Parent section of the GCS website and set up a Backpack account. Open your account, click “Enroll A Student,” and follow the instructions. You can also enroll at school, but be sure to bring the required documents listed here.

Parents, please be reminded that our school policy regarding early dismissal asks that parents not seek an early dismissal after 2:45. Early dismissals at any time are disruptive to the school day and are particularly problematic in the last 30 min. of our instructional day. 

Spirit Nights: Spirit Nights are fundraising nights when restaurants give a percentage of their sales during the time frame to the school. Be sure to mention Ralph Chandler when you order! Check our calendar for all Spirit Night opportunities!
