Registrations will be held at the school in the attendance area where you reside. The elementary schools in our district are La France Elementary, Mount Lebanon Elementary, Pendleton Elementary and Townville Elementary.

However, all students who attend Head Start in Anderson School District Four must register. Parents do not need to bring their child to registration.
Parents of both 4K and 5K students should bring the childís state-issued birth certificate (not the birth certificate issued by the hospital) and updated immunization record to the registration.

Parents are also required to bring a picture ID, which can include driverís license, work identification, etc., and two proofs of residency. The two proofs of residency can include utility bill, rent receipt, mortgage statement or property tax statement, but all documents must show a current address.

Community Meetings Scheduled Concerning District Facilities
A series of community meetings will be held over the next several weeks as part of the district's 10-year facilities planning for future district construction. †A timeline for addressing needs identified by stakeholders will be shared to include priority projects funding by the 1-cent sales tax approved in November 2014. Of the $14M we are projected to receive by the penny sales tax, 5.5M will be held for our portion of the new career center, which is currently in the design phase with identified programs; leaving close to 8.5M for needed projects. Members of the community are invited to attend any informational meeting. Information will be shared on student enrollment trends, economic trends, staff and community survey results, Title IX issues, instructional and athletic needs, and the challenges associated with the current grade span at the elementary level. The meeting schedule can found here. † Facilities Plan Resources†
On December 5th, 2015 Samantha Parker, Harper Cobb, Caroline Gilmer, and Gabby Vickery competed in the SC FFA State Horse Judging Competition at Lander University. These students spent months preparing for a rigorous competition that involved judging various classes of english/western horses and riders, as well as identifying tack/equipment, and applying disease treatment options and farm management practices. After winning first place at this competition, these state champions fully intend to take nationals by storm next October in Indianapolis, Indiana.
