Principal's Message

CONGAREE FAMILIES,

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! Our theme for this school year is
BOLD...Believe, Own, Lead, and Dream! We believe that we must be BOLD in order for us to
continue to push toward our multi year process of becoming the best diverse, high poverty,
high performing school in the state of South Carolina. Though things will be very different, we
are excited to take advantage of the chances that we are given. Our teachers have been
working hard to make sure that there are High Levels of Success for ALL and every student is
provided a high quality education no matter the format. We want our students to demonstrate
being BOLD in a positive way this school year. We are implementing our AVID framework
throughout our instruction. Teachers will continue to implement high yield strategies and
Costa’s Levels of Questioning. Students will continue to develop SMART goals, demonstrate a
growth mindset, and work toward College and Career Readiness.

As a school we are making sure to increase our digital presence by communicating more
often and clearly to families on our school website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and
Classroom Dojo. Information is being added constantly, so please make sure to check
regularly for updates. We encourage all to join the Congaree Parent Teacher Organization
(PTO) and if you have a desire to serve in other ways, the School Improvement Council (SIC).

Once again, we thank you for taking the Opportunity to Believe, Own, Lead, and Dream with us
as we make this one of the most positive memorable school years ever!

Be BOLD,

Christopher K. Dickey
Principal
