Principal's Welcome

Dear Parents,
We are excited to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year at the Early Learning Center at Park Hills. I am very excited about working with each of you as we embark upon our new journey together. The first day of school for students is Thursday, August 21, 2014.
If you are new to the school, I look forward to getting to know you and your child. Therefore, I would love for you to stop by and introduce yourself. I’ll be delighted to tell you all the wonderful things we have in store for you and your child this year.

7 Shares, Cares and DARES!

7 Shares, Cares and DARES!
Primed with excitement and sporting their pride, the District 7 team of teachers and staff donned their individual school colors and celebrated the start of a new academic year with the annual back-to-school program known as 7Shares on Thursday, August 14. The 1200 employees of the District packed the Spartanburg High School gym for a morning of inspiration, motivation, and recognition.
Bobbi Kennedy, Special Projects Director with ETV, brought special recognition to Adam Babcock, technology integration specialist at Spartanburg High School, for being named a 2014 PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator. After a nationwide search, Adam was selected as one of only 100 educators from across the country and the only one in South Carolina. He was chosen for his passion and commitment to innovative teaching practices that integrate digital media and technology in the classroom.
Praised for their commitment in the classroom, 13 teachers were honored as the top educator in their school with the District Teacher of the Year award going to Marquice Clark from the Cleveland Academy of Leadership. Eleven first-year teachers were also honored for outstanding performance during their induction year. Leslie Sloan from Spartanburg High School was awarded the Crystal Apple - the top award for a new teacher.
