District Announcements
Dr. Danny Merck Named New Superintendent
We're happy to introduce Dr. Danny Merck as the new Superintendent of the School District of Pickens County. Dr. Merck comes to the position with 23 years of experience in education, most of which were spent right here in the district. Dr. Merck has served in roles including teacher, coach, principal and district administrator. For the past two years, he has been the principal of Daniel High School.
He will officially step into his new leadership role on May 1. Until then, he will work with the board of trustees and our current Superintendent, Dr. Kelly Pew, to ensure a smooth transition.

Changes To School Calendar!
The 2013-2014 School Calendar was revised for the remainder of the school year on March 24. These calendars reflect changes because of snow days. We are using all three of the snow days that were built into the calendar at the start of the year, and the remaining snow days were forgiven by the board.

Key Changes:
  • School ends on June 6.
  • Exams (except for seniors) will be from June 3-6.
  • Schools will be open on April 21, May 23 and June 6.
  • Several grading period and report card dates have shifted.

The calendar for next school year is all set and ready for parents to view.

The 2014-2015 school year will start on August 19 and end on June 3, and the class of 2015 will march on May 30!

Parents will notice something new on this calendar: 1:30 p.m. dismissal days. You may also hear these referred to as Early Release days. School will dismiss early on these days for teacher training. Early Release days will be on October 7, 2014 and February 3, 2015.

April Character Education Focus
Our character trait is humility- putting others first by giving up what you think you deserve!
Our animal this month is a school of herring. Because herring are so numerous and common, it’s easy to take the herring for granted. However, they are a vital link in the world’s food chain.
Lots of things come first in the mind of your child; dessert, recess, a favorite sports team or a pop star. But this month, we are adding one more thing to the list of what comes first: Others! Join us at home as we introduce a new value and help your child see the importance of humility!


Spring Break


SDPC will have SPRING BREAK from
April 14th through the 18th. 


Ingles - Tools for Schools
Just a reminder you have to link your Ingles card each new school year to the school of your choice.  Click here (Chastain Road) for a link to add your Ingles card to help out Chastain Road Elementary.  Our School Code is 30697.




We have a new way to Celebrate at CRE
Would you like to commemorate something special with your child during the school year? Instead of sending a special snack to be shared with the class, we encourage you to donate a book in your child's honor instead.

Books given to classroom libraries or to the school media center are gifts that last and become part of your child's legacy at Chastain Road Elementary. Gifted books can include special bookplates that can be obtained from the school. These bookplates will allow you to commemorate a birthday with your child's name and the occasion. Our hope is that gifting books will become a new tradition at Chastain Road Elementary and will result in greater student participation and school pride. If you would like to donate a book at any time in your child's honor, please contact our media specialist, Julie Thompson and she will assist you with this.
