2016 Summer School
7th Grade PBL
7th grade has a group of students working on and designing a website for the past few weeks that coincides with their PBL: Raising Awareness for Endangered Animals. All 7th Grade PBL groups helped contribute content to the website. The website is 100% created and designed by the students from a completely blank template. Their website contains news columns/blogs, information about upcoming fundraising events, videos and pictures from the 7th Grade about our efforts to help. Students worked in teams with different "jobs" to get the website and different pages up. A student even came up with an idea to create a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money to donate to local shelters and national charities.Check out the awesome work these students have done so far. You can help us also by sharing these links with others!

A Letter from the Principal
January 2016

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

We have had an excellent semester. Thank you for your efforts to prepare your children for school each and every day. It is difficult to believe that half of the school year has passed and we are now looking to the second semester and the rest of this school year.  Most students are on target academically and, if they continue their hard work, should finish the school year well prepared for next year.

My concern is for those students who are struggling academically in one or more classes.  All students will receive their semester report card on Thursday, January 28, 2016.  Please ask your child for his or her copy when he or she gets home that afternoon.  If, for any reason, your child does not get a report card please call the guidance office, 803-354-3554, and we will be sure to send a copy home.  If you child has one or more “F’s” in any core class, English, math, science, social studies, please contact the guidance office to set up a meeting with your child’s teachers as soon as possible.

With parent and teacher interventions, it is not too late for your child to pass all of his or her core classes and be promoted to the next grade.  Please note your child must pass all core classes with a “70” or better in order to be promoted to the next grade.  Also, all of your child’s grades, core and related arts, are calculated for Honor Roll, Principal’s Honor Roll, National Junior Beta Club, and National Junior Honor Society.  It is important for your child to do his or her best work in all classes.

As much as all of the teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators wants every child to be successful we cannot do it alone.  We need the assistance of parents, guardians, and most importantly, the students. Parents and guardians you can help by making sure your child, comes to school each and every day unless prohibited by illness, remains at school all day, gets a least eight hours sleep every night, and studies each night, even if they say they have no homework, they need to read. And please, check parent portal weekly and visit the teachers’ webpages to monitor your child’s progress.  Students it is your responsibility to come to school prepared, pay attention in class, do your homework and read, read, read.  As much as all the adults in your life and the adults in school want you to be successful, it cannot happen without you.

The teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators are here to help you and your child.  If you need help please call the school and talk with one of us.  If you do not feel you are getting the help you need from anyone here at CEMS please call me and I will do what I can to assist. Together we can make this a great year for your child and prepare them well for the next school year.

Field Study in Charleston
On Monday, November 23, advanced art and publishing students traveled to Charleston, SC after studying the rich history, ornate architecture, talented artistry of the Holy City.
7th Grade Guest Speaker
On Thursday, November 19th, Jamie Bozardt, Executive Director of Edisto Habitat for Humanity spoke to seventh graders at CEMS about Habitat’s mission and work in the local community to build homes for low income families. Teachers invited Jamie Bozardt to speak to students as part of the seventh grade project based learning class at CEMS. Students learned about the requirements for qualifying to be a Habitat family, including having a need for housing, having the ability to pay a monthly mortgage payment of about $350, and the contribution of 350 sweat equity hours to Habitat for Humanity. While students at CEMS do not meet the minimum age requirement to volunteer on a Habitat construction site, they learned they could assist Habitat for Humanity through advocacy, raising money through projects such as a bake sale or car wash, and by collecting canned goods, paper towels, and cleaning supplies. Many students were interested to learn that Deshaun Watson, quarterback for the Clemson Tigers, grew up in a Habitat home.
6th grade hears about perseverance
6th graders were treated to an early morning uplifting talk about perseverance.  Josh Martin, who attended Carver Edisto Middle School and graduated from Edisto High School, shared his personal experiences with being persistent.  He encouraged students to persevere through tough situations, and that good things come with hard work and persistence.
