Greetings, Bookman Families!

As we bring a close to Autism Awareness Month, we encourage you to join us in continuing to emphasize that we are ALL different and unique, and it is these differences that make our school such an awesome place to be!

We would like to thank Mrs. Nord and Mrs. Altman, two of our Bookman Road teachers, for creating simulations to help students understand how others may learn and process information differently. 

Thank you for continuing to help us "develop Beacons who 'light the way' in personal character, academics, and community service."

Have a great weekend!

Dr. Hill, Principal

Thank you for your support at 
Sonic Night this week!

Yard Day Success!!
Thank you so much to all the parents, students, and staff who came
out to support our Yard Day 2018!

What's life like as a military child? 
Some of our Beacons want to give you their perspective. 

Stop by D Hall to see this smiling face on display!

Dear  4th grade Parents,
If you have not done so already, please complete the electronic survey sent to 4th grade families recently. Richland Two will use the results from this survey to better work with families in our school community. We want to make sure that we are doing all we can for our families and their students. Please complete the survey by April 30, 2018. Your responses will be completely anonymous. Thank you for your time and participation.

SCREADY & SCPASS Standardized Tests

Students in grades 3-5 will participate in the South Carolina College and Career READY Assessments (SC READY) for English Language Arts and Mathematics in May 2018.  Students in grades 4-5 will also take the South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS) for Science and Social Studies.

Specific test dates below:
May 15th - ELA/Writing - Grades 3, 4, 5
May 16th - ELA/Reading - Grades 3, 4, 5
May 17th - Mathematics - Grades 3, 4, 5
May 18th - Science - Grade 4 only
May 18th - Social Studies - Grade 5 only

You are so important to your child’s academic success and we know that you want to do everything you can do to ensure he/she does their personal best.  Please read these tips below to help your child with test preparation.

  • Encourage your child to do his/her best.
  • Make sure your child gets adequate sleep.  A tired child is less able to pay attention or handle the demands of testing.
  • Give your child well-balanced meals. Rest, exercise, and eating well are important for test taking.
  • Arrive to school on time each day of the test.

  • Please do not Schedule appointments during testing week.  Students that miss a test would have to complete the test on a scheduled make-up date.
