School Hours: 7:45-3:20      School Phone Number: (803) 663-4300

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! I am excited that teachers and students are finally in the building. I was really happy to see familiar faces on registration day. I was also delighted to meet the parents and students who are new to our Leavelle McCampbell family. It is going to be a great year!

I would like to welcome our new staff members, Mrs. Tutt, Language Arts Teacher, Mrs. Gore, Science Teacher, Mr. DeBeaugrine, Science Teacher, Mrs. Johnson, Special Education Teacher, Mrs. Moldovan, Special Education Teacher, and Mrs. Stanley, Math Teacher. We also have a new teacher for ESL, Mrs. Watson, who is returning to Leavelle McCampbell.

There is a lot of excitement this year. We will continue to develop our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Program at Leavelle. Additionally, we will have a kickoff for our Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) program, which is designed to build community and respect among peers, while reducing discipline issues in school.

Seventh and eighth grade students in good academic standing can try out for football or girls’ volleyball during the first week of school. Coach Joenk has scheduled volleyball tryouts will be Tuesday, August 18 for 7th grade and Thursday, August 20 for 8th grade. Practice is 3:30-5:15. Football tryouts start Monday, August 17 from 3:30-5:15. Coach Saunders has asked that you wear shorts and t-shirts for tryouts. All students wishing to try out must have a current physical and concussion form completed and on file with the office.

Open house is scheduled for August 31, 2015 from 6-7:30. There will be representatives from PTO available, as well as a discussion of social media safety by a member of Aiken County Sheriff’s Office. Please plan to attend and meet your child’s teachers.

Please be sure to see the dress code for 2015-2016, which is also located on the home page.

As always, it is a pleasure to serve the greatest middle school kids in Aiken County! I am honored to be here! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 663-4300 or jspears@acpsd.net.

Required Vaccine
 ATTENTION PARENTS OF UPCOMING 7TH GRADE STUDENTS-PLEASE READ:
South Carolina law requires that all students entering 7th grade receive one (1) dose of Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis).
