RMS Archery Team wins BACK-TO-BACK State Titles
Riverside Middle School started their archery team last year and has already won two state championships. This year’s team returned 13 archers from last year’s team and added some of the top archers from the elementary schools. The team had very high expectations to do very well this year. With their first competition on March 3, the team won the SC Archery in the Schools Region 1 Tournament. The Region 1 Tournament had six of the top eight middle schools that qualified for the state tournament. On March 26, the team traveled to Sumter, SC and competed in the SC Archery in the Schools State Tournament. The RMS Archery Team won the state tournament for the second year in a row with a record score of 3,285 points. Dylan Pierce also finished as the second place male with a score of 288 points. Next on the schedule for the archery team is the National Archery in the Schools National Tournament in Louisville, KY on May 7-9. With the great score the team posted at the state tournament, they enter the national tournament as the seventeenth place team in the nation. The team has a very good chance at winning the NASP National Championship. Good luck RMS Archery Team and GO DOGS!

This letter is filled with important information about the start of school and the exciting changes at La France Elementary School this year.

Each year the start of school is a busy time – and this year is no exception!

You may also choose to send your child with a lunch from home.  We ask that you are mindful that we have students with severe nut allergies.  There are many ways to be supportive of those students, including providing your child with lunches that are nut-free.  We also encourage you to pack a waste-free lunch when possible by reusing plastic containers, packing re-usable silverware, and minimizing food packaging.
