May 22nd is the last day to register for Pre-Kindergarten.
Anyone who registers after that date will be placed on a waiting list.
Morning car-riders are to be dropped off on the side of the school where the cafeteria is located. The student is not allowed to be dropped off before 7:15 and the latest is 7:50.
Students are NOT to be dropped off in front of the school.
Field/Water Day is Friday May 22, from 9:00-1:00. It will be a day full of SUN,FUN, and WATER!
Because there will be quite a few events involving water, it will be a dress down day and the children are encouraged to wear their bathing suits under their clothing to school. Boys are okay to wear swim trunks with a t-shirt. Please make sure your child bring a towel and extra clothing in a plastic bag ( including undergarments) to change into at the end of the day.
Flip flops would not be advised because many of the events will include running and flip flops can cause injury. Shoes with straps around the heel to hold the child's foot in would be best.
It is also strongly urged your student wears sunscreen! After 10-20 minutes the sun begins to damage unprotected skin no matter the skin tone.
Parents and friends are encouraged to come out and join the fun!

Pre-K Screenings begin for 2015-16 School Year
Colleton County School District provides a full day Early Childhood Development Program for four year old students. Children must be 4 years old on or before September 1, 2015 to qualify for screening. Screenings will be held at Hendersonville Elementary, Cottageville Elementary, Bells Elementary, and Black Street Early Childhood Center. Parents need to go to the school that they are zoned to attend. If you are unsure about the correct school zone, contact any elementary school or BSECC @ (843) 782-4516. Parents need to come in now and fill out a registration form. You will receive a call indicating your scheduled appointment time. Screenings and placement in Pre-K will be set up on a first come first serve basis. It is important to register for the screening early.
At the screening appointment parents will need to bring the following:
Long Form of Child's Birth Certificate (If you do not have a long form of the birth certificate we recommend that you apply for that now- no child will be screened without it)
Medicaid card or verification of income which includes W2 or pay stub
Special Funds from the State Department of Education are used to fund this program, therefore, not all four year olds will be accepted. A screening process will be used to determine a child's eligibility for the program.
Please contact Barbara Kulisek at (843) 782-4516 if you need additional information.
Car rider dismissal is at 2:25 and bus rider dismissal is at 2:30.
