Clarendon County School District announces September teacher and staff features


In Clarendon County School District, we recognize that it takes a village to educate and empower our children
and build a learning culture in our schools. Our teachers and staff play an important role in ensuring that our students have a safe
environment to excel and that change happens in the lives of our young adults, families, and the community. We recognize outstanding
teachers and staff members who positively impact Clarendon County School District each month. We created a Teacher Feature of
the Month Award and Staf Feature of the Month Award coordinated by the district’s Teacher Forum, composed of each school’s
Teacher of the Year. The purpose of the Teacher Forum is to foster professional growth and teacher leadership. Their colleagues
nominate those receiving awards for excellence in their classroom and positive contributions to Clarendon County School District.
Ace Hardware, Lucy’s, FTC, Fayz Restaurant, The Orchard, Johnson’s Fish, E & E, Substation II, ReJuva, Burger Chick, Daniel’s
Pizza, BellaDonna, Polished Peddler, Axe Throwers, The Manning Times, and Huckleberry Finn sponsored the Teacher/Staff Feature
program for September.
Each of our winners will receive gifts from our local partners.
