It is a truly exciting time of year at Leavelle McCampbell Middle School. Students are getting excited about the upcoming Summer Break and are looking forward to time away from school. However, it is important for them to realize that we will still be working until June 4.

We have completed our annual round of state testing. Our students were tested using the ACT/ASPIRE Tests for Reading, Math, Science, and Writing. They have also used the test instrument that we have utilized for a number of years, PASS, for Science and Social Studies. I am looking forward to seeing our scores on the ASPIRE tests, as they will provide us with a good baseline of scores for our students as to their comparison to others who take this nationally normed test.

Our students have participated in several events over the last few weeks and there are more events to come. Leavelle McCampbell hosted a STEM Night on April 20. We had hundreds of our students and students from Byrd Elementary, Warrenville Elementary, and Gloverville Elementary come to the school and participate in activities and watch demonstrations. Our 8th grade students took a field trip to Atlanta on April 24 and toured the Coca-Cola History Museum and the Georgia Aquarium.

Several of our Chorus students participated in a choral performance at Carowinds on May 1. Our chorus earned a rating of “Excellent” in the performance. We had twelve students try out for the All State Chorus. I am proud to announce that Shelby Dyer and Adrienne Prupis were two out of one hundred and fifty students selected and were the only students from Aiken County selected to participate!

The band and chorus will perform their Spring Concert on Thursday, May 14 at 6PM in the gym. Several of our students will participate in a Leavelle McCampbell Talent show on Thursday, May 21, at 6:30PM, which is also being held in the gym. Performances will repeat for the students during Clubs on Friday, May 22. PTO will host an End of the Year Dance in the gym on Friday, May 22, from 5:30-7:30PM. On May 28, at 6PM, we will have our annual Athletic Awards Banquet. Finally on Friday, May 29, our students will participate in the annual Field Day/Sock Hop/RockFest.

A notice was recently sent home regarding a presentation on cyberbullying and internet safety that will be hosted in conjunction with the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office. This will be held at 6PM in the gym on May 19. Please make plans to attend this important program.

End of Course Exams will be given Tuesday, May 19 for Algebra I and Thursday, May 21 for English I. Regular end of the year tests and exams will be scheduled as follows: 3rd period will

be Thursday, May 28; 4th and 5th periods will be Monday, June 1; 2nd and 7th periods will be Tuesday, June 2nd; 6th and 8th periods will be Wednesday, June 3rd.

Awards Day will be held on June 4. The 6th and 7th grade program will begin at 8:30. The 8th grade program will begin at approximately 10AM.
