Camden Elementary Patriot Night At The Kershaw House

Really had a good time last night at the Camden Elementary fourth grade Patriot Night, which was held over at the Joseph Kershaw House.  Because the event was held at nightfall and the the house was lit with candles, it truly seemed like Colonial times.  This event is part of the “Why America is Free” curriculum.  I particulary enjoyed Mr. David Reuwer playing Jospeh Kershaw.  He was great!  I’m very sure that the students will remember this event for many years.  Kudos the the fourth grade teachers!  A fantastic event!!

Writing At Doby’s Mill

Every year, Doby’s Mill teacher Teresa Reno invites me to come do a writing lesson with her third graders.  It is always a great time, and yesterday was no exception.  I was so impressed with how much these students knew about the writing process, their excellent vocabulary, and their creativity.  We wrote together the first three paragraphs of a story based on a picture.  I can’t wait to read how each student finishes the story!  A lot of fun!!!

Ted Monroe Honored

I was happy and honored to be present at last night’s County Council meeting, when Lugoff-Elgin Middle School wrestling coach Ted Monroe was honored for his service and accomplishments as coach of the Leopards.  Ted’s accomplishments in terms of wins and championships speak for themselves.  What to me stands out most about Ted is what an outstanding role model and teacher of important life lessons he has been for countless athletes.  A richly-deserved recognition!

Science Projects At Camden Elementary

I had an absolutely great time this morning judging Science Fair Projects at Camden Elementary.  The quality and variety of the projects were excellent!  I was particularly impressed with how well students used graphs and tables to show the results of their experiments.  I saw some very sophisticated stuff!  Great job!  I really appreciated the invitation to participate!
