Greetings and welcome to Elloree Elementary School, the home of the Warriors! I am Dr. Derrick James and I am thrilled to have been chosen to serve as Principal of this great school! Elloree Elementary has a reputation of excellence and we will continue to strive to become the best. We have embarked upon a new school year with great enthusiasm and anticipation of new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole. Our theme for this year is simply “Start Right and Stay Right.”
Our teachers are committed to providing innovative and rigorous lessons to our students, incorporating technology in order to meet the needs of the 21st century learner. Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience. While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide leadership opportunities, character education and exposure to the technologies in order to prepare students to compete with their global counterparts.
We encourage you to visit our beautiful school and see that we are a school committed to children, with a college and career focus, and preparing them all for the next grade level. You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners. To our parents, we believe that your involvement is an essential component to the academic success of your child. I encourage you to visit our website often, meet your child’s teacher and to get involve with all that Elloree has to offer. Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!
I look forward to partnering with you on behalf of our future leaders as we are Building Better Futures with No Excuses! Please feel free to email me at Jamesd@obg3.k12.SC.US or call the school at 803-897-2233.
Derrick James, Ed. D
