Coupon Book Sales begin today! When the coupon book comes home, your child can use it as a model to show to take orders. Orders will be taken between now and October 1. Class with the most sales wins an ice cream party. Every student that sells one coupon book can wear a hat on October 4. Top two sellers in each grade level win a pizza party lunch with Mrs. Terry and Mrs. Plyler. All earned funds support Six Mile Elementary!
Open House, that was originally scheduled for September 2, is being postponed at the current time. We will let you know when it is rescheduled.

During the week of August 16-20, breakfast and lunch is available for pickup each day in front of the cafeteria between 10 and 1. Buses will begin delivering meals on Tuesday as well. All students are able to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day.
Good morning! I wanted to clarify device and packet pickup for our SME students. K and 1 students will have a packet to complete for this week. This packet can be picked up on Tuesday between 10 and 3. Teachers are in the process of compiling this, and it will be ready by Tuesday. Grades 2-5 students can pick up devices either today or tomorrow. Today's hours are 3-5 pm. Tomorrow's hours are 10-3. To keep the line manageable for pickup, we will have devices available around the school. I apologize in advance if you have students in multiple grade levels. Devices for grades 4 and 5 will be in front of the kindergarten wing. Devices for grades 2 and 3 will be in the bus loop. Packets for K and 1 will be in front of the cafeteria. If you have questions about pickup, please contact your child's teacher. Have a good day and stay well!
Just as a reminder - Classroom doors open at 7:30. We actually begin unloading cars around 7:27. Teachers begin providing instruction and learning at 7:30. At 8:00, the tardy bell rings. After 8:00, the "turtle" will be put out and parents will have to come in to sign in the student. If your child arrives at 8:05 daily, he/she could be missing up to 35 minutes of instructional activities in the classroom. We encourage you to arrive between 7:30-7:45 if at all possible. Unexcused tardies are coded in Powerschool and count towards attendance. We want your students in the building as close to 7:30 as possible! Thank you for your help with this!
If it is raining in the morning, parents may walk students to their classrooms instead of meeting teachers outside.

Students who will be attending the PCVA (Pickens County Virtual Academy) for the 2021-22 school year may pick up their Chromebooks on Monday, August 2 in the front office between 8 and 3.
Just like this past school year, students will continue to receive one free breakfast and one free lunch at school. If a student goes back for extras, the student's account will be charged. If you have completed the free/reduced lunch application in the past, it will be important to do that again. Other funding is tied to that status and you may need that designation to receive that funding. The link to the SDPC Student Nutrition site is here: http://sdpcnutrition.com/ Please visit this link to complete the application.
