Thanks to our amazing School Advisory Council, we were able to host The Global Workshop with international educator and Landrum Alumnus, Matt Colaciello. Matt brought the students, parents, and staff to the far reaches of the globe and back to explore how water moves around Earth. Through 3 grade level multimedia assemblies and a 2 day/ 1 evening walk through exhibit, we were able to experience a glimpse of how others depend on and use water around the world.
Rising 8th grade students interested in taking Theater Arts II, that did not get the opportunity to take Theater Arts I as 7th graders may audition to be selected for the class.

School Based Summer Camps
Attention 8TH graders
8th grade news and important dates! Here are two great links to help with your high school transition and academies:
Landrum has recently begun a pilot program with the Schoology learning management system. Schoology is a secure online program that serves as a central hub for learning. Teachers can create, manage and share information and resources with their students. Students using Schoology can get class assignments, link to readings and guides selected by their teacher, collaborate with classmates, take tests and quizzes, and work on self-paced learning activities. Here at Landrum, all teachers will be posting Daily Board Agendas (DBAs) to ensure all students and parents know what is being taught in the classroom. Parents will be given login information in the near future. Please be patient as we continue to offer professional development to our teachers to ensure the proper use of this program.
Scientific Calculators will be part of the statewide assessments for all 7th and 8th grade math courses. This is an example of the calculator that will be allowed on the FSA test (2017/2018). Other calculators will not be permitted. Cost is about $10. Students are expected to have their own TI-30Xa calculator in class daily.
