To review and relax before SC Ready testing, the 3rd grade at Flat Rock Elementary had a "Glow Day" on Friday! Classrooms went dark except for black lights that illuminated fluorescent objects. Students used fluorescent highlighters to review passages, math equations, and other activities! They also wore neon glasses and glow sticks to stick out even more. Good luck to all of our students testing this week! 🔦🧡

Until SCDHEC and the SDE have issued their guidance, we will continue operating under our current face mask guidelines. As soon as the new guidance is issued, we will share additional information.
