WordMasters Wizards

WordMasters Wizards
The D7 wordsmiths are at it again showing their skills in the WordMasters Challenge - national competition for students in grades 3-8 that encourages growth in vocabulary and verbal reasoning. Unlike other language arts competitions for this age group - which focus on grammar, punctuation, spelling and other language mechanics - the WordMasters Challenge helps students learn to think both analytically and metaphorically. For the first WordMasters Challenge of the year six D7 students won highest honors and earned perfect scores in the Gold Division. Congratulations to Sarah Grace Fluckiger, Miles Keller, Brice Krydynski, Will Love, Samuel Markley and Sam Mitchell. Nationwide only 95 fourth grade students in the nation, out of more than 2200 students that participated, earned a perfect score in the first challenge meet in the Gold Division. Bravo!

District 7 Honoring Local School Board Members

District 7 Honoring Local School Board Members
School District 7 has joined districts throughout the state and nation to celebrate School Board Recognition Month this January. On Tuesday, January 9, 2018 when District 7 trustees gathered for their first meeting of the new year, Superintendent Dr. Russell Booker welcomed the group back and applauded their contributions to public education. District 7 has long been fortunate to enjoy the leadership of dedicated men and women who go above and beyond to care about our children and to advance our schools. While the efforts of school board members often go unrecognized, our Board is the governing body of this school system. Our trustees develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues. They also bear responsibility for an annual budget, for 7400 students, 1200 employees, and more than a dozen District facilities.

D7 Student Scores Big Win to Clemson Carolina Game

D7 Student Scores Big Win to Clemson Carolina Game
You’ve heard the expression - reading will take you places. Well, 10 year-old Ty’Kerian Walker was banking on that happening when she entered a SC Department of Education competition called Read Your Way to the Big Game. In a surprise assembly at Pine Street School today, it was announced Ty’Kerian is the grand prizewinner of 4 tickets to the Clemson vs. Carolina game. To be eligible for the contest, students in kindergarten through eighth grade are required to read six books. As one of the two state winners, selected from more than 50,000 entrants, Ty’Kerian will be treated to sideline passes before the game and pictures with the mascots from Clemson and Carolina. As part of the big reveal the Clemson Tiger joined in the fun at Pine Street, as students and staff celebrated Ty’kerian’s win and wagered their bets on the victor of this weekend’s infamous college rivalry.
