DLE Debt Slips

Parents, debt slips for the $30 DLE (laptop) Insurance went home yesterday with students in their report card envelope. The form indicates that personal checks are not accepted. This was printed in error. Personal checks are accepted. Checks should be made out to Crayton Middle School. The money can be turned in to the front office or to their first block teacher.

If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Arflin at 803-738-7224.

Crayton Grade Course Selection/Registration Dates

We hope to publish information within the next couple of weeks concerning course selection dates. This process will help us schedule students for next school year. Dates will include a time to meet with our current students, as well as 5th Grade students who attend our feeder schools. Included in this information will be dance and drama audition dates, Parent Nights at elementary schools as well as Parent Workshops and Family Tours a couple of evenings here at Crayton.

Elementary students who are on transfer status and not living in our school zone, must apply to attend Crayton through the Registrar’s Office from March 1st through May 2nd. All students who have been on transfer status must go through the transfer process. We will only complete course requests for transfer students after a transfer has been granted through that office.

Everyone will be welcome to attend our upcoming Parent Workshops and Family Tours in the evenings for information and any questions.

Please feel free to contact Cheryl Taylor, Assistant Principal at or 738-7902 for any questions.
