District Announcements
Open Enrollment Opens for Elementary Schools
Open Enrollment for elementary schools in Anderson School District Four families begins March 1, 2015.  Parents who desire to enroll their student(s) in an elementary school outside of their attendance zone may exercise this option by submitting an application request during the month of March.  Open enrollment for La France, Mount Lebanon, Pendleton, and Townville Elementary Schools will be honored based on a first come first serve basis as well as the availability of space.  Additionally, parents opting for open enrollment will be responsible for providing transportation and may exercise this option through the highest grade level offered.  Notification of school assignments for all open enrollment requests for the 2015-16 school year will be made by June 30, 2015.  Applications are available at the District Administration Office at 315 East Queen Street in Pendleton.  All applications must be returned to the District Administration Office by April 6, 2015. A student who has previously been granted Open Enrollment does not need to re-apply unless his/her address has changed.  Questions should be directed to Dr. Joanne Avery (864-403-2000) or Mrs. Chris Hanak (403-2036).
Red Oak Dedication Ceremony
Over 50 townspeople from Pendleton shared in today's celebration of the Red Oak Dedication.  Planted at the intersection of East Queen Street and Greenville Street stands the symbol of continued life and growth; both in District 4 and the Town of Pendleton. Today the dedication included remarks from Superintendent, Dr. Lee D'Andrea; Board of Trustees Chair, Dr. Tom Dobbins; 225th Pendleton Anniversary Committee Chair, Ms. Carol Burdette; Pendleton First Baptist Pastor, Rev. Courtney Krueger; and Town of Pendleton Mayor Frank Crenshaw.  Participants nodded in affirmation of the true words emphasized by each speaker and condensed in a familiar quotation by Alexander Smith.  “A man doesn’t plant a tree for himself.  He plants it for posterity.”
Substitute School Nurses Needed
As field trips ramp up for the spring season, our schools are in need of Registered Nurses to serve as substitutes for our school nurses.  If you are a RN and interested, please complete and submit the documents located on our Substitute Program website link.  Or you may email with questions.  
1:World Mobile Learning Device Initiative
1: World is Anderson 4’s mobile learning initiative that will equip every student in grades 3-12 with a Chromebook for instructional use by August 2016. In anticipation of the 1:World roll out, Anderson 4’s Technology and Instructional Services Team would like to join parents in preparing our students for this exciting technology integration. Parent meetings have been set up at all of the schools. Parents are welcome to attend whichever meeting location and time is most convenient with their schedule. We look forward to sharing both important details and available resources as the roll out begins in 2015.  Parent Protection Plan Agreement Form for Take-Home Devices, 1:World Mobile Learning Guide for Take-Home Devices, Free Local WiFi Access Locations and 1:World Information Card.

MLES First in SC to Receive STEM Certification
During Anderson School District Four’s AdvancED accreditation review last November, Mount Lebanon Elementary School also underwent an additional review through a pilot program to receive a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) certification.

According to AdvancED, “the purpose of establishing the AdvancED STEM Certification is to provide schools and programs within schools with a research-based framework and criteria for their awareness, continuous improvement, and assessment of the quality, rigor, and substance of the STEM educational program. AdvancED STEM Certification is a mark of STEM distinction and excellence for those institutions and programs that are granted the certification.”

Mount Lebanon Elementary School is the first school in the state of South Carolina and one of only five across the United States to receive this certification.
