A Message from the Principal


Dear A.C. Moore Parents and Community,

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year! We are excited to have students back on Wednesday, August 21st! I know this will be a great year for teaching and learning. 

At A. C. Moore Elementary, we are blessed with great teachers who spend hours planning lessons to engage all students in learning. As an Arts in Basic Curriculum (ABC) School, we incorporate arts integration activities and performances within the curriculum. We offer an extensive list of afterschool programs to extend art experiences beyond the school day. 

As we start the year, I encourage you to actively participate in one of three organizations that support our school: Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), School Improvement Council (SIC), or the Creative Arts Alliance (CAA). We need your support!

I am honored to serve in my 13th year as principal at A. C. Moore Elementary School. I am truly blessed to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. 

If you have any questions, please call 803-343-2910 ext. 2002 or email me at I look forward to working with you this year.

    and Iowa Assessments Tests in October


    About the Iowa Assessments and Cognitive Abilities Test

    The Iowa Assessments and Cognitive Abilities Test help determine how students are performing on nationwide standards. The Cognitive Abilities Test measures students’ learned reasoning abilities in three areas that closely relate to success in school; verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and nonverbal reasoning.  The Iowa Assessments measure achievement in several important content areas including Reading and Mathematics.  These tests will be used as part of the process for identifying gifted and talented students for the Advanced Academic Program beginning in third grade.

    The tests help teachers identify a student’s strengths and areas that may need additional emphasis. The Iowa Assessments also measure student growth and progress in the content areas assessed from year to year and may provide information about college readiness for older students. The assessments produce information that enables sound decision making and provides a focus for teachers to evaluate instruction.

    Each test includes sample questions to help students become familiar with the content and format of the tests. Samples help students understand what to do—how to mark answers and move from question to question.

    All of the test questions are multiple choice and the questions are read to the student.  The tests last about 10 to 35 minutes and will begin at 8:00 each day.


    How your child can prepare for test taking—and what you can do to help

    A student who is well rested and well fed and has a positive attitude about testing is best prepared for testing. You can help your child do his or her best by considering these tips:

    • Make sure that your child is in school and on time on test days.
    • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before each day of testing.
    • Remind your child that these tests are only one measure of what he or she has learned. Emphasize that you have confidence in his or her ability to do the best job possible.
    • Remind your child to listen carefully during testing. Encourage your child to ask the teacher for help if he or she does not understand the directions.
