Back to School Bash

Our Back to School Bash was a huge success!  The students had a blast.  Special thanks to SPC Credit Union of Hartsville and Ms. Caitlin Vance for sponsoring this event for us again.  

Special thanks to Jill Knight, Student Council members, and Mr. DJ - Cole Davis.  Freckles and Giggles Ice Cream was another big hit.  Once the students got over the shock of only Italian ice, the line was still long.  There were there until the last person was served.

Congratulations to the Main Office Crew and Mr. Wilson's first block class for having the highest percentages wearing the 2019 spirit shirts!

Special thanks to Mrs. Carlita Davis, Assistant Superintendent and Mr. James Ford, Coordinator of Secondary Education for attending our Back to School Bash.
