District Announcements
Students to take new state tests this spring
SC students will take new state tests beginning in April 2015.  These new tests are ACT Aspire™, ACT Workkeys® and The ACT®.  Not only will the tests reflect the achievement level of students, but the new tests will help teachers understand where their students are succeeding and where extra help or academic focus is needed.  These tests will be an important tool in ensuring student success.  Attached is a link to helpful information from the SC State Department of Education on the new state testing program and what it will mean for your student.

ROMS Garden
We have the hoop house up and ready to go.  In order to get our garden going we need lots of cut grass, leaves, cardboard, and newspaper.  If you can drop off the yard cutting by the hoop on the right side near the grouping of trees that would be wonderful.  Any help for our garden is always appreciated.  If you have any questions please feel free to give me a call at school or email me at thammock@dorchester2.k12.sc.us.  ~Tina Hammock
