As we continue to “Build for the Future” the second half of the school year, we are very excited about the deployment of the new Chrome devices being issued to our students. Overall our students did a great job with attendance and grades the first quarter of the school year.
Our teachers will continue to increase the rigor in the classroom by infusing technology, as well as focus on preparing your child for the upcoming State assessments. Intense tutoring sessions will start in February. It is imperative that your child is in school every day. Please schedule appointments for your child after school. If you must pick your child up during the school day, we ask that you do so between classes. A bell schedule can be obtained from the front office.
Please use this opportunity to review your child’s mid-year progress. Research indicates that student performance and attendance is increased with parental involvement. Parent-teacher conferences can be scheduled by contacting our Guidance Administrative Assistant, at (803) 655-2658.
I look forward to continuing to work as a team in preparing your child to be college and career ready.

Calhoun County High School received the U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools’ Bronze Award for the ninth consecutive year.
To produce the 2015 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News teamed up with the Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for Research (AIR), one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world. U.S. News & World Report analyzed 21,035 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using performance on state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.
This honor is a result of collective efforts and teamwork among dedicated teachers, focused students, and supportive parents.
Thanks for supporting the Bi-Lo Rewards Program. Points were redeemed for school supplies for students in need. Bi-Lo has ended this program but will offer a new program soon. Watch for details.
