This year’s school setting is truly like playing “whack-a -mole,” but Lauren Roberts handles it with professionalism and grace at all times. She has a quick wit and laugh that sets those around her at ease. It's why she's a LifeChanger at Richland County School District One and Caughman Road Elementary School!

Coach Brown is the greatest . She came demonstrated how work on your foot work with Natalie and dropped off a few tools for her to use.
The BEST history lesson/tour for each of our fabulous 50 states! If you can connect...... take a virtual field trip OR a virtual vacation! Enjoy :)

🌎International Literacy Day 🌎📚

Our teachers & staff are committed to celebrating literacy in ways that will bring joy to our students and increase their love of reading each and every day!

Barbara Reid, Family Literacy Day Honorary Chair, shares some amazing ways that families can spend just 20 minutes a day learning together to continue to spark J O Y in literacy!

What’s a new idea you’d like to try with your family for a Take 20?

Congratulations to the 2022 grant recipients: Ebanreb David of Eau Claire High School; Jane Mason of Hand Middle School; Jennifer Gorlewski of Dreher High School; and Melanie Maas of Caughman Road Elementary School.
