Congrats to our Culinary Arts Career Center students! Out of 22 high school culinary programs from around South Carolina, Abbeville County Career Center ranked number 7 in management and 11 in culinary. The team consisted of students from Abbeville High, Dixie High and McCormick High. The management team was Maya Smith (AHS) and Caitlin Lee (DHS). This team developed a restaurant concept to the judges that included logo, floor plans, marketing tactics, return on investment, SWOT analysis, operations, and menu costing. The culinary team which consisted of Kaleah Johnson (AHS), Amber Foges (AHS), Brandy Vaughn (DHS), and Kaley Heath (MHS) competed in a high intense competition where they were to prepare a three course meal in one hours using no electrical appliances. This team was challenged to come up with their own recipes, display time management and sanitation skills along with recipe costing. This year’s team was led by first year culinary instructor Chef Erica McCier-Rayford.

Students in all grade levels celebrated South Carolina Day at Long Cane. 4K students colored our state tree, first graders viewed a PowerPoint and published their own books showing various state symbols, and second graders tasted sweet iced tea - the state's favorite drink!
Students at WWES celebrated South Carolina Day by studying the state motto, reading "P Is For Palmetto", pressing the yellow jasmine, learning about Thomas Dry Howie, the Major of Saint Lo, from Abbeville, and many other SC-related topics.
To celebrate South Carolina Day, CTES students read the book “P is for Palmetto” by Carol Crane and created our state flag by using their handprints.
The Kindergartners at JCCE are all geared of for South Carolina Day! The students created the state flower, the Yellow Jasmine, and made the state flag out of their hand prints. The students enjoyed drawing themselves on the state of South Carolina to represent their hometown, Calhoun Falls. Students received a special visit from Coach Newton's dog, Sage, a Boykin Spaniel which is the state dog. What a great day to be at JCCE!!!
