Thursday, March 26 - Rainforest Review-April
Tuesday, March 24 - New Test for South Carolina
New laws passed by the South Carolina General Assembly have resulted in new tests that will be administered during the spring of 2015 throughout our state. Students in Grades 3-8 will take a new, timed test this school year called ACT Aspire. In Richland Two, our students will take the paper and pencil ACT Aspire tests for writing, English, reading and mathematics. They will not take the optional ACT Aspire test for science that some districts may use. This new test will help teachers understand where their students are succeeding and where extra help or academic focus is needed. By having a better understanding of a student’s skills, abilities, and knowledge, parents and teachers can determine what students need to know to be successful in school in the future.
Students in Grades 4-8 will continue to take SCPASS for science and social studies. Schools have the option of administering SCPASS as an online test or a paper and pencil test. Third-graders will not take any state tests for science and social studies.

Thursday, March 05 - Parents of 5th Graders
Parents of 5th graders,
Recently your child attended an in-school performance of the Richland Two middle school bands , choruses, and orchestras. Students learned about the instruments and programs offered to rising 6th graders at our District Two middle schools.
Each student received a brochure with an interest form attached for you to sign and return to your child's elementary music teachers.
During March, we celebrate music in our schools month and we use this time as our "signing days" for students to begin their musical education in the 6th grade. If your son or daughter is interested in joining band, chorus, or orchestra when they enter 6th grade, please turn in the interest form as soon as possible.
For your convenience, you may also sign the interest form online at the district website.
Go to www.richland2.org, click parents and community, click Middle School Music.
We look forward to your family becoming a part of the the award winning Richland Two music family.
