Garbe

Washington Center was a part of the SEC Playmakers Pals program and was paired with the University of Florida women’s’ basketball team.  Ms. Amy Garbe’s class became pen-pals with Corey Staples, a junior guard for the Gators.  The students helped to make cards and crafts to send to Corey.  The students also followed the Gators basketball season; they incorporated math skills with counting points scored and comparing final scores to determine the winner of each game.  They also used map skills to find where the Gators were playing and where their opponents where from.  All of the students enjoyed learning more about basketball and cheering on the Florida Gators and their pen-pal, Corey.  Go Gators!

Pandolfi Concert

On Friday, March 8th, Washington Center students and staff were privileged to host well-known Greenville artist and performer, Mr. Emile Pandolfi, for a concert. Everyone seemed to enjoy the "fast and fun" extras that Mr. Pandolfi added to his creative piano pieces. Musical selections included a variety of enjoyable genres from ragtime and pop to Broadway favorites. With the addition of handmade stars and colored scarves to wave, students made their own contributions to the concert. Dr. Penny Rogers, principal of Washington Center, said about the program, “I have never seen our students so attentive!” A special “thank you” goes to Mr. Pandolfi for his kindness and for sharing his beautiful music.

SC Capitol USPIE

During a recent hearing on H. 3759, which passed, SC Representative Shannon Erickson talked heavily about tracking ALL children, including private and homeschoolers, from birth.

Now, after much backlash, and in an attempt to save face, SC Republican Rep. Shannon Erickson has claimed her comments were taken out of context. So in order to give you more context, we have added more of her speech for you to discern her intent for tracking children from birth in all educational environments including home school. Just watch this clip of Rep. Erickson saying it’s the legislature’s responsibility to monitor and measure child progress.
