Anson County Schools Superintendent Michael Freeman reported a very positive start to the 2014-15 school year on Monday.
“Our opening day of school was very successful,” he said. “Board of Education members and I agreed that we all observed many very positive situations at our schools. Students were quickly engaged in appropriate teaching and learning activities.”
Freeman added that both students and staff seemed excited to be back in school. “Our facilities were immaculate as a result of staff preparing and cleaning each school for another school year,” he said. “Fortunately, the challenging work of our transportation department resulted in safe travels to and from home for bus riding students. I just hope our community will continue with the level of enthusiasm and support we experienced on opening day and at each of our open houses.”
Attendance at open house events preceding the start of school were very well attended, Freeman said.
He pointed out that the Anson High School Bearcats will have a home game Friday night, which he hopes will also have very high attendance and support. “I hope everyone will join the Anson Bearcats on Friday night for our next football game,” Freeman said.
The Bearcats will take on Monroe at 7:30 p.m. at the Anson High School Stadium.
