Hand Middle School, the University of South Carolina and other organizations are partnering to offer the first-ever Super Saturday event on December 14 from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at Hand Middle School.


Super Saturday is a free, fun event for all students and parents in the Dreher cluster of schools, which includes A.C. Moore, Meadowfield, Rosewood and South Kilbourne elementary schools, Hand Middle School and Dreher High School. The goal of Super Saturday is to empower and inspire parents by showing them how to advocate for their children and help them succeed in school.


The Super Saturday event, which includes a free lunch and drawings for door prizes, will culminate with an UNO tournament, a three-point shooting contest and a free throw shooting contest for students. In order for students to participate in these events, a parent or guardian must attend the parent Super Saturday sessions.


Informational sessions and workshop topics for parents include parents as advocates, parenting tips for middle school students, the making of a college athlete and dual-language learners. Informational sessions for students will focus on academics, character and careers. Fun activities for students will include arts and crafts, and movies. Child care will be provided for students in grades K-5.
