South Conway Elementary School is helping all students develop the World Class Skills of the Profile of a South Carolina Graduate by providing a caring, safe and academically challenging learning environment. We provide an environment through the implementation of our schools vision: a school that develops the emotional, social and intellectual development of each child and provides service learning opportunities for students to solve real world problems through becoming active, responsible citizens. South Conway Elementary School had an excellent 2017-2018 school year. Each grade level participated in Service Learning projects which helped to address needs in the community. Service Learning projects included working with senior citizens, Solid Waste Authority, Emergency Preparedness, Churches Assisting People (CAP), Fostering Hope and Animal Shelters. Students and teachers also participated in projects such as the American Cancer Society's Red Nose Initiative, Red Cross Blood Drives, Relay for Life and the American Heart Association's Jump Rope for Heart. Reading and Math Incentives and recognition programs were continued to encourage students to do their personal best in all academic and character areas. Students were recognized as good school citizens, life skill leaders as well as opportunities for leadership. Early intervention continues to be the focus in our school. Interventions through an RTI model were provided for students in both reading and math based upon their academic needs. Our Reading Recovery program discontinued 16 first grade students. Tutoring was provided for all students grades 1-5 in reading, writing and mathematics during the year. Our kindergarten had 93% of their students to benchmark on DIBELS. All students grew academically throughout the year as indicated on the DIBELS and MAP assessments. Digital content programs were implemented such as Achieve 3000 and Aleks Math. Students in grades 3-5 grew 199 Lexiles during the course of the year. 69% of these students met or exceeded ending knowledge on their grade level on the Aleks math program. Our teachers have worked diligently to incorporate a blended learning model for their students. Our PTO sponsored successful fundraising activities to encourage parental involvement and provided extra funding for school projects such as fine arts day, fifth grade honors day and teacher recognition programs. Our Title one budget supported 2 part time reading interventionists, a family school coordinator, 1 curriculum coach, 2 Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Service Counselors and parent workshops. Many local business partners provided incentives for our students and staff. In addition, several faith based organizations partnered with our school to provide school supplies for all students.
