An Important Message from
Anderson School District Two's Kid President


On November 4, voters across Anderson County will be voting on a Local Option Sales Tax. This 1 cent sales tax will allow the responsibility of updating Anderson Two schools to be shared among property owners, renters and tourists. Non-residents are expected to generate about thirty percent (30 %) of the total revenue generated from the proposed tax. Estimates show an increase in available spending of $20 million+ over a 15 year period. Projects would be completed more rapidly, thus providing access to 21st century facilities and technologies.

One School One Book Title Announced!
 

 

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White is the newest book in the One School One Book program at BES! The title was revealed during grade-level kickoffs on September 11, 2014. The kickoffs included reader's theater performances by students and each student and staff member received their own copy of the book with a bookmark and a reading calendar. Students were encouraged to read the book with a family member and learned about the daily trivia contest and the art and writing contests.
