A. C. Moore Students Participate in Green Apple Day of Service

 A. C. Moore was excited to participate in the U.S. Green Building Council’s Green Apple Day of Service!  The Student Council and Recycling Clubs partnered on September 30th to plant the first ever Bobcat Vegetable Garden. The project was sponsored by Yandle’s Plants and Produce, SC Department of Juvenile Justice, University of South Carolina Department of English for Internationals, Sustainable Carolina, and the A.C. Moore PTO.  Special guests at the event were John Brandon from the South Carolina chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council and Representative James Smith from SC House of Representatives District 72.  A special thank you is extended to A.C. Moore parents Bill Yandle and Christina Cole for helping with the project and to Nancy Frick for her hard work and efforts to organize sponsors for the event. We are hoping that through the efforts of parents, teachers, and community members that this will not only be a learning experience for our students, but that it will become a sustainable project.

The library is honored to host a special display as part of a collaboration with McKissick Museum and the A. C. Moore Herbarium. For the next few months, we will have some of Andrew Charles Moore’s personal items on display as well as pictures and information of his life. He served in various and significant educational roles ranging from school principal to president of South Carolina College (now USC). He also was a professor at USC and served on the Columbia school board for over 25 years. Please come by and visit our display and learn a little more about who our school is named after!

From the Principal

Welcome to AC Moore Elementary School!   Our number one priority is raising student achievement.  We are an Arts in the Basic Curriculum School and receive two grants to support arts integration and enhancement: Distinguished Arts Program Grant and the Arts in the Basic Curriculum Grant.
We have an amazing year planned for our students to immerse them in the standards while providing hands on experiences through field trips and artists in residence.  We have a stellar staff who is committed to continuous school improvement by analyzing the data, following the district pacing guides, and teaching to the standards/indicators as outlined from the State Department of Education.

Our parent groups and community are instrumental in providing support to our school.  Please look into joining the below organizations and becoming an active partner in your child's education:
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO):  Katie Evatt, President
School Improvement Council (SIC):  Lee Rambo, Chair
Creative Arts Alliance (CAA):    Katsy Cannady and Fran Owens, Co-Chairs.

I look forward to working with you this year.  Should you have any questions, you may reach me at 343-2910 or by e-mail at .
