School Announcements
ACT scores up
The state of South Carolina released the 2014 ACT scores 20 August and Edisto High made the state list of schools with statistically significant gains in average ACT scores this past year.  Our students raised their average composite score from 2013 by over 10 percent.

“South Carolina students are to be commended for their performance on the 2014 ACT test,” said Dr. Mick Zais, State Superintendent of Education. “These are positive results that we can build on for the future,” concluded Zais.

Way to go, Cougars!

AFJROTC Year in Review

Attention Juniors!!!!

Senior pictures will be taken by Lifetouch at Edisto High School June 2 and 3.  Students are being asked to sign up with Mrs. Townsend-Smith Thursday, Friday, and Monday (May 15, 16, and 19) for an appointment time.  She will be available all THREE lunches and before or after school.

There are two options.  Students may take just the tuxedo or drape pose (the yearbook pose) or may choose to have a full sitting and bring UP TO three outfit changes.  It takes about 90 minutes to photograph one full sitting. 

The sitting fee for either is $25.00 which is due the day the pictures are taken.

If students choose not to take their picture with Lifetouch, they will have to provide a FORMAL pose picture (tuxedo or drape with a blue background) to the yearbook.  The deadline for this picture to be given to Mrs. Townsend-Smith will be September 8, 2014. 

Please see Mrs. Townsend-Smith for more information or to make an appointment.  Appointments are on a first come-first serve basis.

Edisto High is a smoke-free campus
Parents, students, and employees are reminded that Orangeburg School District 4 and Edisto High are smoke-free campuses.

Secondhand smoke is harmful to everyone. Secondhand smoke is a combination of the smoke in the air from a burning cigarette, cigar, or pipe and the smoke exhaled by a person who is smoking. Smoke-filled rooms and cars have up to six times the air pollution of a busy highway. Secondhand smoke has been designated as a human cancer-causing agent by the U.S. EPA, the National Toxicology Program, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. It’s the number one source of indoor air pollution, and it poses a health threat to all South Carolinians.

Some parents don’t fully understand how harmful secondhand smoke is for their kids, but most of them do understand that it is dangerous. That’s why most parents—including parents who smoke—try to protect their kids from secondhand smoke. Please do not smoke on our campus.

AP Chemistry students use Davidson College Virtual Lab

Advanced Placement chemistry students are taking advantage of refurbished computers recently placed in the chemistry classroom by the district's technology staff. The current video shows two AP chemistry students discussing a virtual chemistry kinetics lab. Students manipulate the concentrations of solutions and generate and interpret corresponding graphs for reaction rate. The virtual chemistry lab simulations are an outstanding resource for labs that may otherwise incorporate expensive or dangerous materials. These experiments are especially important for simulating expensive lab equipment that could not otherwise be utilized in a high school classroom and are provided by Dr. David Blauch and the Davidson College Virtual Chemistry Experiment webpages.
