  • Eleventh Grade Parent Meeting

    Thursday, January 30th at 5:00 PM


    McCormick High School, in order to better prepare our students for college and the workforce, will be making laptop computers available for our eleventh grade students. Our students have been using Chromebooks for the last several years and this is the next step in their preparation for life after high school. Microsoft Office applications are the norm in the college and business world so MHS juniors will be starting to use these applications in their classes.

    With your permission your child will be able to get a brand new laptop to use at school and to take home. We will be having a parent meeting on Thursday, January 30 at 5:00 PM to provide you with information and allow you to sign forms to provide your child with a laptop for educational use. Because of the cost of the laptop we are requesting an insurance fee of $15 to cover accidental damage. This will provide coverage for this semester.

    If you would like any more information, please contact me. I will happy to clarify any questions or concerns. We are excited to begin using this new educational tool! We look forward to seeing you at MHS January 30 at 5:00 PM.

    As citizen leaders, school board members face complex and demanding challenges. Yet few people fully understand the scope and far reaching implications of board members’ responsibilities. During School Board Recognition Month in January, South Carolinians are recognizing the vital contributions of these men and women and focus attention on the crucial role these elected public officials play in the education of our children.

    Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, ensure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning. That job entails an endless string of meetings and school functions to attend; reams of reports, agendas, proposals and other information to read and study; and a host of difficult decisions to make.

    School board members come from all walks of life right here in our communities. They are farmers, secretaries, doctors, lawyers, homemakers, architects, professors, business owners and real estate agents, to name a few.

    Although they wear many hats, school board members put on a collective hat when they get down to the business of leading their school districts. Board members must pull together as a team toward a common goal of helping all students achieve. Though individual school board members may sometimes disagree on issues, their role as a member of the school board is to consistently strive toward the goal of high academic achievement. Working together, school board members speak out for public schools and the students they serve.

    Board members contribute hundreds and hundreds of hours each year leading their districts. Whether it is crafting policies, listening to staff and students or recognizing outstanding programs, board members always keep their eyes on the goal of student achievement.

    The time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours school board members spend leading in their districts. They also work hard at seminars and training sessions to keep abreast of the latest trends in educational leadership, are deeply involved in community activities and spend many hours in the schools and at extracurricular events. Their love for learning, and concern and caring for students, staff and community, drives board members’ desire to lead so students can achieve.

    School Board Recognition Month is the time to show our appreciation and to increase our understanding of how local trustees work together to provide a better future for our children. Please join the McCormick County School District and state to salute the men and women who provide grassroots governance of public schools. Make a special effort to tell each school board member that his or her hard work has been noticed and is truly appreciated.

    Once the application is received and the information verified, the school board of trustees must approve the names presented at their monthly scheduled meeting.  The names are then submitted to the State Department of Education for approval and printing. This process takes approximately six (6) weeks from board meeting to receipt of diplomas.
