The annual Richland 1 School District Art Show is being held at Tapp’s on Main Street from March 21-April 2. Satchel Ford is represented quite nicely with a small portion of artwork that was created by some very talented students. Several students were awarded ribbons and will be receiving these when the show is stricken. Following is a list of those ribbon winners:
First Place: Anna Clay Smith and Matthew Robinson
Second Place: Reese Hudgens and Corbin Davis
Third Place: Daisly Inman and Bela Trumpeter
Honorable Mention: Miracle Givens and Louisa White
Each year, a piece of artwork is selected from every elementary school that becomes a part of the Permanent Art Collection. This is quite an honor, as the work is professionally framed and travels around the district for a period of a year. Once that year is completed, the artwork is returned to its home school to be permanently hung in the school’s art gallery. For 2018-19, Madeleine McCarter’s Georgia O’Keeffe flower was chosen to represent Satchel Ford Elementary. Please join us in celebrating all of these students for their wonderful accomplishments in the visual arts.

A Message from the Principal
Welcome back to another great year at Satchel Ford Elementary School! It's so exciting to be part of a distinguished institution of learning, where ALL children can be a STAR in both academics and the arts!
Last year, Satchel Ford saw much development and evolution in the areas of mathematics instruction, scientific inquiry, and the effective integration of instructional technology in support of student learning. I look forward to overseeing and supporting continued positive change in our school, while honoring and preserving the rich traditions of Satchel Ford’s tremendous history of success in our community. To that end, this year our primary areas of focus and development will be inquiry-based, S.T.E.M.-oriented mathematics and science instruction, the full implementation of reading workshop and purposeful independent reading models in our ELA classrooms, and the continued enhancement of digital learning opportunities for children. All of this academic development will be enveloped in a meaningful and creative cultural arts program. In short, we're an awesome school, but we're striving to become even better!
If you ever have any questions, concerns, or compliments, please don’t hesitate to call me, send me an email, or simply drop by and speak with me for a few moments. It takes all of us working together to build successful young adults! Remember, …my door is always open.
