Today, Friday, January 27, random canine sweeps were conducted at Crescent High School and Starr-Iva Middle School. Periodically throughout the school year, Anderson 3 will be conducting sweeps as a proactive approach to maintaining a safe learning environment. All planned canine sweeps are conducted without prior notice to families, students, and staff and are done in a minimally disruptive manner to the learning environment. The use of canines does not indicate that a particular school has illegal contraband on campus. Instead, it demonstrates our willingness to remain proactive in efforts to ensure the safety and security of our schools. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out.

🌟Meet #A3AllStar, Mrs. Kelly Fortner! 🌟 Mrs. Fortner is the Librarian at Iva Elementary School. She has been in education for 22 years, serving in grades 3, 4, and 6 before assuming the librarian role six years ago. Kelly is a proud Crescent alumnus and a product of Anderson 3. She received a bachelor's in Elementary Education from Anderson College, a master's in Curriculum Instruction and Assessment, and a master's in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina. Kelly and her husband Brandon have been married for 22 years and have two daughters, Kendel and Bailee. "What do you value most about your position?" "I love the books (of course!)📚, but my favorite part of being the school librarian is getting to know every student in our building. As a classroom teacher, I only came to know the students when they entered my grade level. This position allows me to get to know the students and see them throughout their elementary school journey. There's no other profession that makes a person feel so loved. In elementary school, you feel like a celebrity every day. When the kids see you in the hallways, they smile and wave and call your name, and it reminds you that no matter how terrible your day may have been, those little people love you. Then, years later, when those same kids are adults, they'll still smile and wave and remind you that they loved you. That's a great feeling!" 💛We are truly blessed to have Mrs. Fortner in Anderson 3. Please join us in thanking her for being an #A3AllStar! 💛
