Future Farmers of America (FFA)

DECA News Terri Causey, Business/Marketing Teacher/DECA Advisor DECA is a business and marketing club and is in its third year at Loris High School. Some may remember it being a club from many years ago. We are proud to say we have done very well at competitions in the past and most recently at regional's. DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.

Nate Bellamy, FFA Advisor The National FFA Organization is an American youth organization, specifically a career and technical student organization, based on middle and high school classes that promote and support agricultural education. The organization was founded in 1928 as Future Farmers of America, but in 1988 the name was changed to the National FFA Organization, now commonly referred to as simply FFA, to recognize that the organization is for those with diverse interests in the food, fiber and natural resource industries, encompassing science, business and technology in addition to production agriculture. Today FFA is one of the largest youth organization in the United States, with 579,678 members[ in 7,570 chapters throughout all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and theVirgin Islands. FFA is the largest of the career and technical student organizations in U.S. schools.

Loris Middle School

Loris Middle School Students Begin the New Year with Electronics Loris Middle School has been working hard. All students at Loris Middle School will be provided an iPad on Jan 7, 2014. The students have been given a very important packet of information last Thursday about the iPad distribution scheduled for January 7. The packet includes information about the iPads as well as two consent forms that must be signed by a parent and returned to school. We are asking that these signed forms be returned no later than December 18. If the forms are not returned signed, the student will NOT be issued an iPad on January 7, 2014. Thanks for your help in this very exciting initiative for our students!

Principal Addresses Great Appreciation Loris Elementary School Nov 7, 2013 Report of Principal and School

Loris Elementary School

Odyssey, an online program that is differentiated for every student based on individual MAP results.

Improvement Council It has been another remarkable year at Loris Elementary! Recognition by the South Carolina Department of Education as a Palmetto Silver School for stellar student achievement on PASS testing and by the National Youth At Risk Council for closing the achievement gap affirms the quality of teaching and learning at Loris Elementary. This year LES continued their partnership with the Leadership and Learning Center whereby teachers received ongoing training and coaching in Effective Student Data Analysis. Ongoing professional development and training was provided in effective literacy and mathematics instruction. This training included model lessons, observations by consultants, collaboration with district learning specialists, coaching, constructive feedback, progress monitoring, and effective data a n a l ys i s . S t u d e n t s i n c h i l d development through fifth grade received systematic instruction via the Imagine It Reading and Everyday Mathematics programs. Loris Elementary students experienced exceptional growth this year on DIBELS and MAP testing. Signi fi cant gains in student achievement can be attributed to differentiated and individualized instruction in reading and math for every student. Intensive small group reading and math intervention was provided to students performing significantly below grade level. Over 250 students were successfully served through instruction via the following programs: Burst, Voyager, Language Exclamation, Kaleidoscope and Number Worlds. Loris Elementary has proven to be a forerunner in instructional technology innovation. All students access Compass

Second grade and special education students participated in BrainWare Safari, which comprehensively develops 41 cognitive skills through online games of logic and cognitive reasoning. A 1:1 laptop program in 4th and 5th grades has proven highly successful. Loris Elementary was recognized nationally for technology innovation by being invited to participate in a Google+ Hangout with the White House. Students and teachers brought home 9 awards from this year’s HCS Technology Fair including two out of three teacher awards and the award for Overall Elementary Best in Show! We believe that the academic success of our students is dependent upon their belief that they can be successful and that it is the job of every staff member to provide support and encouragement towards that end. Students are rewarded through daily i ncent ives, cel ebrat i ons, and assemblies. We also implement a Lifeskill Leaders Program as well as partner with St. Stephens Episcopal Church and Kids Hope USA, which provide over 40 mentors for at-risk students. We were very proud of our participation in local charities and service learning projects including the United Way, March of Dimes, American Heart Association, Helping Hand, canned food drives and the Solid Waste Authority’s Talking Trash Program. Over 400 students received weekend food supplies through the Caring for Kids Program. Thank you for your continued support of Loris Elementary students, staff and programs! Mark Porter, Principal
