A Message from Dr. Reavis

Greenville County Schools is fully committed to helping our students prepare for their future. The 'G+', or Graduation Plus, initiative starts with our youngest students and continues until graduation. Graduation Plus creates career- and college- ready students. In elementary school, our counselors help students learn about themselves and their interests through a Career Interest Inventory. This helps identify activities they enjoy that could lead to future careers.

One goal of G+ is that all students will read on grade level by the end of 2nd grade. OES 2nd-5th graders just completed the second district benchmark assessment in reading and math. Teachers use the assessment results to plan instruction for their class. According to this most recent data, we are only 4% away from meeting our student achievement goals for this school year!

Please continue to support your student's efforts at home. Small things like reading daily, creating good study habits, and checking over homework can help. Thank you for all you do each and every day.

For the children,
Dr. Phillip Reavis
