Rock Hill Schools Update #rockhillschools #rockhill
Congratulations to . . .
Dr. Tanya Campbell, Principal at Old Pointe Elementary, on her selection by the Palmetto Reading Council of the International Reading Assn. as the Administrator of the Year. Dr. Campbell (photo on left) was chosen based on her high expectations for all students and her belief that the most basic foundation of knowledge consists of the ability to read, write and speak. She will be honored at the Palmetto Banquet at the Cotton Factory in Rock Hill on April 18.

Using the organizational talents of Principals Latoya Dixon (Mt. Gallant Elementary) and Michael Waiksnis (Sullivan Middle), Rock Hill Schools will launch EdcampSC on Sept. 7 at Sullivan Middle School. Edcamps, often referred to as "unconferences," are exciting new formats for professional learning. The goal for participants is to share ways to use technology as a tool to improve academic achievement, increase engagement and promote creativity.
Rock Hill High's Model UN Team will host a pancake fundraiser Saturday morning, January 26, from 7:00-10:00 at Applebees on Dave Lyle Blvd. Tickets are $7.
