New Immunization Requirements
The SC Department of Health and Environmental Control recently added an additional   Tdap requirement . All students entering seventh grade must receive or have already received a dose of Tdap vaccine on or after the 7th birthday.  Your child’s school will need a South Carolina Certificate of Immunization showing that he or she has received this newly required Tdap vaccine.

Please don’t wait—avoid the rush by making an appointment with your child’s healthcare provider today to get the required Tdap vaccine and other vaccines recommended for your child’s protection.

ACORNS- Area Churches Organized to Reaching out and Nurturing Students


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 Tasha Miller 641-2770 or e-mail
