SMS STUDENTS EARN STATE RECOGNITION!
Congratulations to the following 7th grade students who qualified for State Recognition on the Duke University Talent Identification Program SAT/ACT this year: Samuel C., Mariah H., Charlton H., John L., Holly R., Gilric S., & James W. 

The Duke Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) is a gifted education program based at Duke University. Its purpose is to identify gifted children and provide them and their parents the resources for them to reach their full educational potential.

Duke TIP operates in sixteen states throughout the South and Midwest, specifically the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri,   Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, , and in Indiana.  Duke TIP was originally started in 1980.

Children are identified as part of the 4th-6th Grade Talent Search and/or as part of the 7th Grade Talent Search. In the 7th Grade Talent Search, students take the SAT or ACT. If a student does exceptionally well on these exams, he or she can receive state and even grand (national) recognition for his or her efforts. This usually entails a congratulatory letter, medals, and an invitation to attend an awards ceremony.

ACORNS- Area Churches Organized to Reaching out and Nurturing Students

ACORN MENTOR PROGRAM-Kick off Week! 

We are excited that South Aiken Presbyterian and Friendship Baptist Church are collaborating with Schofield Middle again this year to provide mentors for our students.  

At Schofield Middle, we believe students need positive affirmation, encouragement, and assistance in setting goals.  Our mentors will serve as positive role models and commit to 30 minutes weekly to listen, encourage, tutor, finish projects and classwork, and assist in the development of goals.  

The commitment for volunteers who participate is one day per week during the child’s lunch period (about 30 minutes) throughout the school year, and the volunteer can pick the day he/she is available.  If we can start identifying volunteers from any congregation or community members who are interested in serving, they can start the screening and training process very quickly.  

Please contact Cindy Keating or Wendy Bailey at 641-2770 or e-mail
