| This is an important update to the 2015-2016 Clover School District calendar. An error in the number of student instructional days was identified after the Board of Trustees approved the calendar on March 23. State law requires students have 180 school days. Our calendar only included 179.|
To correct the error, the Board of Trustees has approved revised 2015-2016 Clover School District calendar.
The first day of school will be Monday, August 17. Teachers will return to school on Tuesday, August 11. Download the NEW calendar!
Clover School District will make-up its February 26 inclement weather
day on Monday, May 25. We recognize and understand the hardship this
may place on families who have previously made plans for Memorial Day
The decision to use Memorial Day as a
possible bad weather make up day was made in February 2014 when the
calendar was approved. Local and state legislative efforts to forgive
this day have been unsuccessful.
Mrs. Rene Pitts, a dental health educator from Dr. Charles Crawford’s office in Rock Hill, came to discuss dental health with our kindergarteners and second graders. She told an interactive story about a boy who forgot to pack his tooth brush and ended up with a cavity, dressed up some of the students in things they may see a dentist wear, and gave new toothbrushes to all the students.
On March 2-6 2015, all the first grade students at Crowders Creek Elementary School participated in Read Across America Week. On Monday, students dressed in “crazy attire” to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Teachers competed to read the most state award books during Read Across America Week. Mrs. Ledbetter’s first grade class won the competition, reading a total of 31 state book award books! As Dr. Seuss would say, “You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
Did you know that Americans produce an average of 4.7 pounds of garbage per day? Have you ever wondered what happens to all that trash? First graders at CCE experienced an in-class field trip where they built a model of a garbage truck using Legos, while learning how garbage can be used to create energy. The lesson included discussion of landfills and some challenges associated with waste disposal. First graders participated in an imaginative, 3-dimensional, hands-on experience that promoted team building. Click on the heading above to see the first graders video.
