We have had several children coming to school sick recently whose symptoms indicated that they should have been kept home.  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.

Attention Parents!

From the Principal's Desk 

It is hard to believe that we are well into the last nine weeks of school and are approaching Spring Holidays! The year has certainly flown by, and so much has been accomplished. Our students are actively engaged in lessons that cover the skills necessary for them to be successful on the upcoming PASS test. Your continued support and encouragement in the next few weeks will also aid in the success of your child. Please continue to check homework, read with your child daily, and encourage your child to do his/her best work.

Please join me in welcoming Miss Shannon Griffin, as our new fifth grade teacher and Mrs. Kelly Wescott, as our new kindergarten teacher.   We are very happy to have them as part of our A.D.E. family!

Mrs. Boozer Receives Patriot Award!

Congratulations to our principal, Mrs. Sheree Boozer, on receiving the Patriot Award, which recognizes employers for employment policies and practices that are supportive of their employees' participation in the National Guard and Reserve.  The award was presented to her by Colonel Joseph T. Smoak in a ceremony at Alice Drive Elementary School on March 7.  All ESGR employer recognition awards originate from nominations by individual Reserve members.  Mrs. Boozer was nominated by Laura Fleenor, a former teacher at ADE who now lives and teaches in North Carolina after completing her basic training and deployment with the National Guard last year.  Thank you, Mrs. Boozer, for your unfailing support of our students and our staff!
