  A Message From the Principal

March 2014

Everyone has been working hard in preparation for the PASS writing test. These two days of assessment (March 18-19) represent the beginning of the Spring testing season and usher us into our last nine weeks of instruction. Report cards for third nine weeks go out this week (March 20) and we will begin organizing lists of students whose grades place them in danger of retention and/or summer school. I sent a letter to all parents back in February with information about summer instruction and I remind you again to be aware of your child’s grades, scores and classroom progress.

Spring break is right around the corner (March 31- April 4) but a great deal of instructional time is ahead. In April we will be conducting MAP tests for the final time this year and 7th graders will have a round of new testing called Smarter Balanced. The remainder of PASS testing is just a little more than a month away. This is a busy and important part of our calendar. Please support us by supporting every aspect of your child’s academic life.


Rhett Harris, Ed.D.

Principal, Laurens Middle School




  • Due to inclement weather, we missed a total of four days of school.  S. C. legislation requires us to use any make-up days remaining on the calendar.  At its March 24 meeting, the Board voted to forgive two of the days missed.  The remaining two days will be made up as half days on June 4 and June 5 as shown in chart below.  LDHS graduation will remain on June 3.
