Welcome to Sandy Run K-8 School, a school where faculty, staff, and students strive for excellence daily in an environment where all students feel welcome, challenged, and connected. Our students are on a journey to excellence, a place where every student reaches his or her highest potential, while being empowered to compete and succeed.

 The vision of Sandy Run K-8 School is to become one of the top schools in the State of South Carolina. To achieve our goal, we must remain an epicenter for transforming learning. Quality teaching and learning will continue to be top priority as we enhance our culture through continuous improvement, data driven decisions, best practices in literacy, project based learning, STEAM, individualized instruction through our one-to-one initiative and onsite technology coach to assist with instructional strategies. Our two new Montessori classes lower (first through third grade) and upper (fourth through sixth grade) will also provide a wealth of educational opportunities for students.

 It is certainly a privilege to be a part of a community where all stake holders support each other and strive to build positive relationships. We encourage all parents to participate in volunteer programs such as our School Improvement Council, PTO, assisting with our PBIS program, literacy nights, and numerous other events. The sharing of educational responsibilities continue to make a positive impact on our students and assist the school with embracing the academic, social, and emotional needs of every student.

 As we all know, keeping our children safe is our number one priority. In the case of an emergency, we follow the protocols established by Calhoun County Public Schools (School Emergency Response: Message to Parents) which can be found in the SRK-8 parent handbook and on the school's website.

 We are looking forward to a dynamic year filled with opportunities, successes, and excitement as we continue to empower “OUR” students to compete and succeed. Thank you in advance for your support and for working hand-in-hand to make a difference in the lives of children!
