Join PTA Today!!

The number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help our school! Membership dues are $5 per person. You can send in your money in an envelope marked "PTA membership". Thank you for supporting the Duncan Chapel PTA! Joining the PTA does not obligate you to volunteer at school or attend PTA meetings - although we hope you will do both!

Palmetto Silver Award!

Congratulations to the Duncan Chapel students, staff, and community for receiving the Palmetto Silver Award for student achievement! This award is based on spring 2012 PASS scores and is given by the SC State Department of Education. This is the second year for being recognized for this academic honor. Thank you for the role you play in the academic success of our students as Duncan Chapel receives another Palmetto Silver Award!

New Vaccination Requirements

Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, all children entering seventh grade must receive or have already received a dose of the Tdap vaccine to protect from pertussis (whooping cough). Parents do not have to wait until their child enters the seventh grade, as children as young as seven years old can be vaccinated. Parents will need to provide their child's school with a South Carolina Certificate of Immunization showing that their child received this newly required Tdap vaccine. Parents, please don't wait - avoid the rush by making an appointment with your child's healthcare provider to get the required Tdap vaccine and other vaccines recommended for your child's protection.

Please, be on time for school!

Our school day begins promptly at 8:00 am. Your child should be in their classroom ready to work at this time. Mornings are often the most productive time of the day for children, and when they arrive late, and need time to settle in, precious learning time is lost. It may help to establish a morning routine at home, making sure your child knows your expectations for getting to school on time.

Note: If you are tardy due to a medical appointment, please bring a note from the medical office in order for it to be an excused tardy.

Change in Address?

Please let the office know if you have had a change in address by bringing in two proofs of your new address. Thank you for your help with this!
