From the Principal's Desk

On behalf of the hard-working and dedicated staff at Alice Drive Elementary, welcome back to school!  It has been a pleasure to see the children walking through the doors of ADE with smiling faces and an eagerness to learn.  We are off to a great start for the 2014 – 2015 school year and we are looking forward to working with your children over the next 9 months. We would like to extend a special thanks to our custodial staff for their hard work over the summer in getting our school ready for the students and staff. They do an excellent job throughout the year and are to be commended for their service.



Congratulations to Lisa Jackson, Our Teacher of the Year!

Do you recall taking a Career Interest Inventory in high school, answering a variety of questions about your likes, dislikes and temperament?  The survey then matched your answers to some  good career options.  I remember my results were: farmer, teacher and shepherd.  It's funny how those three are kind of related!  Yet that test simply confirmed what I already knew from a very young age:  I wanted to become a teacher.

Health Reminder for Parents:

A child who comes to school while infectious can spread germs to other students, teachers, and staff members.  If you are not sure whether your child needs to remain at home, please read the School Exclusions brochure created by the DHEC Bureau of Disease Control.  It outlines symptoms of illnesses that parents should watch for, and offers advice on what to do if you see these symptoms in your child.
