February 14, 2020


Every day more than 50,000 students like myself walking in classrooms across Johnson County eager to take advantage of the opportunities and resources provided to us by CCSD We are guided by teachers and administrators focused on maximizing our potentials so we can become the leaders of the future We are the only family literacy program in Charleston County School District And we are lucky that we have Early Head Start and Head Start on campus We take children as young as two months to four years We also have a GED program on campus, and this is for anybody in the family They get to come back to school and earn a GED and they get to do that while their children are in school The skills that we’re trying to teach our kids Problem-solving creative thinking having the grit all of these Concepts were displayed with what does it take to be an astronaut in outer space?
