Dear Parents and Students,

As you can see in the photos above, it has been an eventful week for Arts and Athletics! There's much to celebrate, as our swimming, tennis, and XC athletes represented SDS well by setting new school records and bringing home team and individual championships. Upper and Middle School band members did not disappoint on Tuesday night as they performed their annual Halloween concert. Excellent work all around, Griffins!

Report cards will be viewable in FACTS/Renweb at 5:00 today. You can access these by logging into the family portal. Students should have a quarter mark and an individual teacher comment for each academic class. If you have questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact the classroom instructor. Below is a quick how-to if you need help with logging in.

  • The RenWeb login link is here.
  • Our district code is SB-SC  (think "SpartanBurg SC" in either caps or lowercase ~ either works)
  • Log in with your username and password.
  • If you have forgotten your username and password, follow the available prompts for retrieval and resetting. 

Salute to Wallace Anne Janeski for spearheading our school-wide efforts to raise an impressive $710 for Children's Cancer Partners of the Carolinas through the recent Kidz in Lids campaign. Kim Deering of CCP shared with students that the funds raised will help affected children and their families offset treatment-related expenses like travel, meals, and accommodations. 

Please remember that we are accepting pumpkin donations for upcoming Upper School activities. The winners of the fall-themed competitions will earn points towards the grade cup.

Monday is an A day, the Senior/Faculty Luncheon is Thursday, October 26 on Dorrance Plaza from 11:30 to 12:30, and next Friday, October 27 is make-up picture day. If students missed the original picture day, this will be the last opportunity to have their photo taken this school year.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
