District Announcements
Dr. Danny Merck Named New Superintendent
We're happy to introduce Dr. Danny Merck as the new Superintendent of the School District of Pickens County. Dr. Merck comes to the position with 23 years of experience in education, most of which were spent right here in the district. Dr. Merck has served in roles including teacher, coach, principal and district administrator. For the past two years, he has been the principal of Daniel High School.
He will officially step into his new leadership role on May 1. Until then, he will work with the board of trustees and our current Superintendent, Dr. Kelly Pew, to ensure a smooth transition.

Changes To School Calendar!
The 2013-2014 School Calendar was revised for the remainder of the school year on March 24. These calendars reflect changes because of snow days. We are using all three of the snow days that were built into the calendar at the start of the year, and the remaining snow days were forgiven by the board.

Key Changes:
  • School ends on June 6.
  • Exams (except for seniors) will be from June 3-6.
  • Schools will be open on April 21, May 23 and June 6.
  • Several grading period and report card dates have shifted.

Parents will notice something new on this calendar: 1:30 p.m. dismissal days. You may also hear these referred to as Early Release days. School will dismiss early on these days for teacher training. Early Release days will be on October 7, 2014 and February 3, 2015.

Visit with an Engineer
 Dr. Melissa Crawley-Smith came to talk with 4th graders about what is an engineer.  She excited the children with the possibilities engineering leads to and will excite them even more in May with a hands on, interactive project.  We are thankful for our parents and community members who extend our students' experiences with real world learning with STEM projects and more!







Box Top Contest
 For each completed Box Top sheet turned in April 1-30, the student/staff turning in the sheet(s) will have his/her name entered in a drawing for CU baseball tickets in the Cajun Café for a May baseball game. Two tickets will be awarded to a student winner and two to a staff winner. Along with the tickets comes a pass for free food at the game!    










                                             
Please Remember....
 If you need to sign your student out from school, the last time that sign-outs are allowed is 2:00 pm.  After 2:00 pm, it is very busy in the office and difficult to alert teachers, etc.  Please plan to check students out by 2:00 pm.  Thank you for your help!
