Convocation 2015 - 'Greatness Begins with a Dream'
The auditorium at Scotland High School was full of administrators, teachers, and staff on Friday morning, August 21 for Convocation and to celebrate the start of the 2015-16 school year. The program began by recognizing all of our school-level Teachers of the Year and announcing our district Teacher of the Year -† Wenona Mishue (Spring Hill Middle Schools), Teacher Assistant of the Year - Myra Bartell (Laurel Hill Elementary School), Principal of the Year - Chuck Dulin (South Scotland Elementary School), and Assistant Principal of the Year - Laura Bailey (South Scotland Elementary School).†
Superintendent, Dr. Ron Hargrave, challenged staff to inspire our students to dream and reminded us that every child is only one adult away from being successful.† Retired educator, Annie Cureton, was the keynote speaker for the event. She entertained as well as encouraged the staff to make the most of their time with their students this year, knowing from experience the impact that can come with working in a school.†
At the end of the program, Dr. Hargrave reminded staff that we are a school system, not simply a system of schools, and that together, we can achieve anything - We Are Family!

Kindergarten Staggered Entry
For the 2015-16 school year, all kindergarten students will begin the school year on a staggered scheduled. †On the student's staggered entry day, they will be provided with ample opportunities to interact with kindergarten teachers and teacher assistants. The student will spend time in each of the kindergarten classrooms with a small group of students. The students will participate in engaging activities that will give them a sense of what kindergarten is like, and give the teachers a chance to get to know each student to†place each child in the best setting for their learning needs.
During these activities, teachers will be observing the studentsí interactions as well as developing an understanding of the student's knowledge in several areas. All Kindergarten students in Scotland County Public Schools will be participating in these activities. †Once all kindergartners have completed the staggered entry process, a Kindergarten Open House will be held on August 27 from 4:00 - 6:30 pm at each elementary school.
As always, if you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact your student's school.
