VA parents: I was unable to log into Canvas. I found it on the CCSD portal, but couldn't log in - any suggestions? I was prompted to log into Google, so I used my son's email for this - but all it did was spin.
Hey, DHES, do we have the update/rosters yet? Thanks!!
Can anyone tell me how the email for LEAP signups is rolling out. I have a very limited availability for my kiddo and need to sign up before they are full :)
Is there a Fact & Fee Day set up and/or the costs for each grade posted some place for the parents?
Does anyone happen to know if report cards were sent out for Kindergarten?
I need to enroll my youngest for kindergarten, I did the school of choice registration online and was told I'd hear from someone in April, which obviously was cancelled. What do I do now to ensure he gets in next year?
I was helping one of your 2nd grade students with a test and was perplexed at how a 7year old, who reads the exact words written, was supposed to figure out the question?!
We love our amazing teachers at DHES! Thank you for all you do!!
Greetings Bobcat Parents and Guardians,
I am happy to let you know the dates of Fact and Fee and Parent Orientations for the coming school year. Fact and Fee has become overwhelming for all of our stakeholders over the past few years. We are trying a different format this year in hopes that it will be a more calm and informative process for everyone.

Fact and Fee will be held in a drop-in format over these three days: Tuesday, August 7; Wednesday, August 8; and Thursday, August 9 from 8 am to 4 pm each day. You will be able to pay school fees ($30/student), find out your Bobcat’s teacher, get your car tag, and complete most school related paperwork.

If you come for Fact and Fee and complete the normal “first day” paperwork there will be less form “filling out” for you on the first day of school!!!!! Who doesn’t want that?????

Teachers are volunteering to come and assist the office staff on the three days, but your child’s teacher may not be at the school the particular day and time you come to visit. Because there is quite a bit of construction at the school, I am not able to provide a definite location for the Fact and Fees, but adequate signage will be provided to let you know where to park and enter the building.

Parent Orientations are scheduled for the following times:
1st Grade – Tuesday, August 14 from 5:30 – 6:00pm
2nd Grade – Tuesday, August 14 from 6:00 – 6:30pm
3rd Grade – Tuesday, August 14 from 6:30 – 7:00pm
4th Grade – Wednesday, August 15 from 6:00 – 6:30pm
5th Grade – Wednesday, August 15 from 6:30 – 7:00pm
Kindergarten – Thursday, August 16 from 6:00 – 7:00pm
Child Development – Monday, August 20 from 6:00 – 7:00pm
STUDENTS SHOULD NOT ATTEND THE PARENT ORIENTATIONS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION WITH THIS REQUIREMENT. TEACHERS WANT TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

There are different times for each grade level to assist parents with children at different grade levels.
I
Thank you to all of our Bobcat Family and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Kindly,
Brian Agnew

Jaden Warren, a 5th grader at DHES, was one of 5 winners in the SC Port Authority's "Name the Cranes" Contest. His entry, "No Crane, No Gain," is the name of the middle of the 5 ship-to-shore cranes at the new Leatherman Port Terminal.

[03/19/21]   Bobcat Parents and Guardians!

We are putting together prize program for some positive pick me up for the teachers as we move towards Spring Break and are hoping for some assistance from our great school community.

If you would like to help, we are asking parents to provide small donations for the prizes for daily raffles. The prizes do not need to be large in size or value. We are thinking small boxes of candy, $5 gift cards, Bath & Body works lotion, a set of gel pens, etc. It really can be just about anything.

We know that you all have been working hard with your little Bobcats as well so I want to say thank you in advance for your donation and helping to make this a success for our staff. They have been really working extra hard and will continue to work extra hard up to Spring Break and into mid-June!!!!

We will have a box in the main office for the items.

As always .... thank you for all you do for our/your school and GOOOOOOOOOOO Bobcats!!!!!!

DHES Dance Fit Program Kicked Off Today

Hey Parents!
Our Drayton Hall Dance Fit Program kicked off today with an exciting Kickoff, and we are thrilled about this year’s program! We’ve asked the fundraising experts at Booster to power our two-week Dance Fit program, making our fundraising simpler, more profitable, and more FUN. Our Dance Fit includes EVERY student, both in-person and virtual, in a fun, fitness event that focuses on character while helping our school raise much-needed funds. Our goal is to raise $21,000 for leveled readers, classroom libraries, books for the library, picnic tables for outdoor lunches; and we need YOUR help by sharing with friends/family, and donating if you are able!

[08/26/20]   I understand that some/many of the setting assignments (in person vs. temp remote) have put some families in some tight spots. We have been fielding calls/emails from some families with some very difficult circumstances. I wrote and told many of them that we would try and connect some parents with others who may be able to help.
If you are in a situation in which you think you may be able to reach out and help by hosting another family's student please either use FB Messenger to reach out to me OR post a comment below here.
Please consider helping out fellow Bobcats.

[08/25/20]   Good Evening: Rosters are posted on the cafeteria windows. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF ALL IN OUR COMMUNITY AND DO NOT POST THEM ON SOCIAL MEDIA!

A modest portion of the in person rosters were set aside for a small number of students with additional needs. The vast remaining portion of the students on the in person rosters were selected by a randomization tool we used from the internet. Should a person decline the in person spot, the "wait list" was generated at the same time we randomized the rosters and we will use that to fill the spot.
We were able to accommodate 180 of the 297 in person requests we received and look forward to being able to accommodate all in person requests as soon as it is safe. The Board of Trustees voted that Phase 2 of the Safe Restart Plan would be triggered when the case counts were at 200 per 100,000. Hopefully that will be soon.

Please know if your child is returning for In-Person learning, he or she will be required to wear a mask for the entire school day, with the exception of lunch and mask breaks. If this is something you feel your child is unable to comply with, please let me know as soon as possible and we will transfer him/her to a Temporary Remote class. This guideline is for the safety of all students and staff and will be strictly adhered to.

I appreciate your patience while we work through the challenges of educating during a pandemic. ALL OF YOU HAVE GRANTED US A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF GRACE AND WE ARE THANKFUL FOR THAT. We will continue to work with you and your family the best we can, but we cannot accommodate every family.

More on LEAP Days coming tomorrow!!!

08/24/2020

We are getting ready for the 180-185 in person students!! We should be able to post the rosters/send out emails by tomorrow at the latest. Our in person classes will start at 12 to 13 students each. Most grade levels will have 2 classes that size. The other teachers will be conducting the temporary remote classes.

[08/20/20]   I regret to inform you that we will not be able to release the rosters or the educational setting for your Bobcats until early next week. We had hoped to be able to release the information today or tomorrow. I apologize for "over-promising."

[08/15/20]   Bobcat Parents,
CCSD sent an email to all parents earlier this week to request that you VERIFY your choice for how you would prefer your child(ren) be educated at the beginning of the year. If you did not see the email please check your spam or junk email folders for the survey. The completion deadline is Monday. This will serve as the final choice and we will be able to begin organizing classes based on the results.

I wish I was able to post the link to the survey, but the surveys are specific to what you indicated your preference was in July.

Please first try and find the survey in your email. If you complete the survey, the results are automatically uploaded into PowerSchool. This eliminates human error. IF you cannot find the email please feel free to email me ([email protected]) with your child's name, grade, and YOUR preference of either "in person," "temporary remote," or "Virtual Academy." Explanations can be found on the CCSD website (ccsdschools.com) under the "Important Links" banner, the third line down where it says Grades CD - 8.

Thank you for your help helping us organize DHES' students. We hope to post rosters by Thursday or Friday. I will let you know via email, Facebook, and our school website.

Please pass this information on to friends/family who may not receive it for one reason or another.

[08/10/20]   Heads up!!!! The arrival time and school start/end times have been adjusted for the coming school year.
Start Time is 8:40 am
Doors will open at 8:15 am

Dismissal is 3:40 pm

[08/07/20]   Some more information for our Bobcat Parents.

The SC Department of Education has mandated what are being called LEAP days. L=Learn, E=Evaluate, A=Analyze, and P=Prepare.
ALL students are to come to at least a portion of one of the LEAP days.

These days for CCSD are Aug. 31 - Sept. 4. We are planning on all students to come to at least 2 half-days. Parents will need to bring students to the school. Unfortunately, transportation cannont be provided. Teachers will be calling parents between Aug. 11 and 17 to make the most convenient appointments for your family . We feel that two half-days are better for students because most students will be taking a Reading and a Math MAP assessment. Taking both tests on one day will most likely not provide teachers with the best information.
Parents will be able to meet with teachers for a short time, but teachers will also be sending parents video introductions with class/grade specific information prior to Aug. 31.

More information will be provided by your child's teacher during the calls. THANK YOU so much for being understanding regarding the LEAP days. We look forward to seeing everyone beginning Aug. 31st.
