Chesterfield County School District amends calendar
The Chesterfield County School District has rescheduled parent conference scheduled for Nov. 5, replacing it with two late afternoon and early evening dates.
Parent conferences will be held after school in the McBee, Cheraw, and Chesterfield attendance areas Oct. 30 and Nov. 1.
Schools in the Jefferson-Pageland attendance areas will hold parent conferences after school on Oct. 29 and Nov. 1.
The times for McBee High School will be 3:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. on October 30 and November 1.
Parents who have conflicts with these dates are asked to contact individual teachers about scheduling a conference.
Dr. Harrison Goodwin, superintendent, said that the new dates should benefit parents and families.
“Working parents often find the conferences held after school much more convenient to attend,” says Goodwin. “Also, with Nov. 6 a scheduled holiday for elections, families are now free to have a four-day weekend break.”

Business Before Hours
September 27th was a busier than normal early morning at McBee High School. The media center was filled with business and industry leaders, college representatives, military representatives, and community leaders who were there to meet with McBee High School’s expected graduates for 2013 at the annual “Breakfast Before Hours”. The event is sponsored in an effort to emphasize and develop the soft skills of interaction and communication often undeveloped in a world obsessed with texting and other even less personal means of communication. Well-dressed seniors networked and mingled among the many distinguished guests to better develop these skills. After breakfast the students and visitors continued to meet and discuss various topics concerning the senior’s plans, hobbies, education, etc. Among the visiting guests were the Honorable Jay Lucas of the South Carolina House of Representatives; NETC President Dr. Ron Bartley; past Board Member Mr. Jerry Holley; and CCSD Superintendent Dr. Harrison Goodwin and Assistant Superintendent Dr. Susan Little.
Each semester the MHS Guidance Department sponsors a blood drive in cooperation with the American Red Cross. The fall semester drive was held on September 19 in the McBee High gymnasium. Any student age 17 or older could donate. Many of the MHS students who are only 16 years old obtained parental permission so that they could also participate.
According to Red Cross coordinator Chasity Humphries, there was a severe shortage of blood at the time and McBee High School students and staff helped by donating over 35 units of whole blood. McBee High is very proud of these students who made a huge impact on building blood supplies while performing a gratifying community service.
