Spring has arrived with it comes MAP testing, Living Literature Parade,  Real Men Read Day, field trips, Spring Fling, Spring Break, and Class Pictures.  It will be a busy time at ADE!

Preschool and kindergarten registration has begun for the 2018-2019 school year.    If you, a neighbor, or a friend has a child who will be entering our school for the first time now is the time to register for next year.  The registration forms are available in the office and on Sumter School District’s website.  Copies of the child’s birth certificate, SC immunization form, and two proofs of address are required at registration.  By enrolling now, you can help us better plan for the next school year.

As the quarter comes to an end, please continue to work with your child, ensuring he/she is completing homework assignments and studying for weekly tests.  Third quarter ends on March 26, and report cards will be sent home on April 10.   We will have our awards programs for second – fifth grade on April 17 and 18.

As the weather gets warmer, we are finding that many student leave coats, jackets, and sweaters on the playground and in the cafeteria.  If you child is missing one of these items, please come by and check our lost and found rack.

Again, we appreciate the support you give to our school each day.  As always, please do not hesitate to contact me at (803)775-0857 or via email at Suzanna.Foley@sumterschools.net  if I may be of assistance at any time.  We always value and appreciate your input.
