District Announcements
Red Oak Dedication Ceremony
Over 50 townspeople from Pendleton shared in today's celebration of the Red Oak Dedication.  Planted at the intersection of East Queen Street and Greenville Street stands the symbol of continued life and growth; both in District 4 and the Town of Pendleton. Today the dedication included remarks from Superintendent, Dr. Lee D'Andrea; Board of Trustees Chair, Dr. Tom Dobbins; 225th Pendleton Anniversary Committee Chair, Ms. Carol Burdette; Pendleton First Baptist Pastor, Rev. Courtney Krueger; and Town of Pendleton Mayor Frank Crenshaw.  Participants nodded in affirmation of the true words emphasized by each speaker and condensed in a familiar quotation by Alexander Smith.  “A man doesn’t plant a tree for himself.  He plants it for posterity.”
Chromebook Anticipation Turns into Reality

7th graders at Riverside Middle School were so eager to receive their Chromebooks that they didn’t dare miss school yesterday.  The deployment of the district Chromebooks was a huge hit with students.  Each 7th grader was issued their own personal learning device; complete with a protective carrying case, portable thumb drive, and ear bud set.  The 1:World rollout made for an exciting day full of smiles and satisfaction for both students and staff.  There is a renewed excitement about learning and an awe about the capability these personal devices give for teacher creativity and student achievement.    
       
Substitute School Nurses Needed
As field trips ramp up for the spring season, our schools are in need of Registered Nurses to serve as substitutes for our school nurses.  If you are a RN and interested, please complete and submit the documents located on our Substitute Program website link.  Or you may email hr@anderson4.org with questions.  
1:World Mobile Learning Device Initiative
1: World is Anderson 4’s mobile learning initiative that will equip every student in grades 3-12 with a Chromebook for instructional use by August 2016. In anticipation of the 1:World roll out, Anderson 4’s Technology and Instructional Services Team would like to join parents in preparing our students for this exciting technology integration. Parent meetings have been set up at all of the schools. Parents are welcome to attend whichever meeting location and time is most convenient with their schedule. We look forward to sharing both important details and available resources as the roll out begins in 2015.  Parent Protection Plan Agreement Form for Take-Home Devices, 1:World Mobile Learning Guide for Take-Home Devices, Free Local WiFi Access Locations and 1:World Information Card.

Welcome ILEP Teachers!
RMS has been chosen to participate in the International Leaders in Education Program with Clemson University.  RMS will be hosting international teachers who will partner with our ELA teachers in this professional exchange program.   All of the ILEP teachers were nominated by their home country and approved through the respective US Embassy and local Fulbright commission.  Following their experience, the teachers will return to their home country and act as teacher leaders to others in their schools and countries. We are excited to welcome them to RMS!

 


 
Summer Programs at the SC Governor's School for the Arts and Humanitities
Summer students experience the challenges and rewards of intensive arts training. The summer faculty is made up of practicing artists who are dedicated to nurturing creative potential. Summer students have the opportunity to showcase their work in end-of-session recitals, readings and presentations. While learning discipline and craft from instructors who are practicing artists, they also form bonds with emerging artists from all the art areas in a supportive and engaging environment.
