      Runners Wellness/Field Day !

                         April 20, 2018


    From the PrincipalDrGrant



    Greetings to the Arden School Family!  It is indeed a pleasure as the instructional leader, to be working with and serving you during the 2017-2018 school year.  Our school year promises to be an exciting one with the help of our parents.

    Striving Towards Excellence┬Ł is our school's theme.  Our focus will continue to ensure students learn in a safe, respectful, and nurturing environment, so that your child will be college and career ready.  As a school family, we want to ensure a culture of high expectations for students, and continue to establish community partnerships, and to grow parental involvement.

    It is our belief that the key to student success is the home, school, and community working together.  Parents are encouraged to review the helpful information in the agenda in an effort to familiarize yourselves with the procedures, rules, and polices so that we will have a smooth school year. Parents, you are being asked to communicate with your child's teacher in reference to academics and behavior on a frequent basis. The Parent Portal is made available to you to keep abreast of your child's academic progress.  I urge you to become involved with the School Improvement Council (SIC) and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).

    Some opportunities open to you are: a) chaperone field trips, b) be a mentor to students, c) volunteer at the school, d) visit your child's classroom, e) eat lunch with your child , and f) be an active participation on Career Day. We will continue the Box Tops for Education programs, so please cut out the Box Tops found on a variety of grocery store items, and send them to school in a sealed envelope on a monthly basis.  Each Box Top is worth $.10.  Again, I am excited  about the upcoming school year and am confident that Arden will be a successful venue for all students to learn and grow.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me at 803.735.3400, if you have questions or concerns.  I look forward to working with each and everyone of you during the 2017-2018 school year.


    Children First,

    Peggie A. Grant, Ed.D
