    Richland One Mission Statement

    We are Richland One, a leader in transforming lives through education, empowering all students to achieve their potential and dreams.

    South Kilbourne Elementary School has done it again!

    South Kilbourne Elementary School was one of five South Carolina Schools, and one of 269 schools nationwide, to win a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School Award from the U.S. Department of Education and the S.C. Department of Education.  The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools whose students achieve at very high levels or have made significant progress and helped close gaps in achievement, especially among disadvantaged and minority students. 

    Over the years, South Kilbourne has been in relentless pursuit of continuous improvement in curriculum and instruction so that effective teaching and learning take place in every classroom every day.  "South Kilbourne has an unwavering commitment to student success," said Richland One Superintendent Dr. Percy Mack.


    South Kilbourne is a Title I School that supports student achievement and teacher professional development.

    Richland One will prepare every student to be a successful, contributing citizen in a global society by providing an effective and high quality education.

    From the Principal: Dr. Linda Norton

    Greetings South Kilbourne Community Family!

    Who would have thought that one school year would result in so many rewarding relationships.  I have made a connection with the World's Greatest Students!  I am so proud of our students' accomplishments and determination to do their best every day.  Our parents definitely receive the "Second to None" award for their endless support and constant efforts to ensure that South Kilbourne Elementary remains the best school in the nation.  It is difficult to describe our outstanding partners, Five Points Rotary Club, Midlands Reading Consortium, the National Coalition of 100 Black Woman, the Cason Group, Junior League of Columbia, Wal-Mart, Publix, and Suber-Marshall Memorial UMC, who provide their time, talents, and resources to our school.  Please know that you are greatly appreciated and without you, we would not experience success. 

    I am fortunate to have all of the individuals mentioned above; however, I have a secret that no other principal has and that's the best faculty and staff that could join as a collective group in one school!  Our teachers and staff work relentlessly to ensure that our students are treated as valuable jewels, with love and care. Our students are challenged daily and involved in engaging learning experiences. 

    We welcome volunteers in our classrooms, activities and programs. We encourage ongoing communication with families, and my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns that you would like to share. I appreciate your input, and look forward to another successful year.  Together, we will continue to provide South Kilbourne Elementary students with the best educational experiences possible!  Thank you for "Staying True to the Blue"! 

     

    Your Principal,

     Linda Norton, EdD.

     

    When You Believe…….

    Quote of the Week

    "Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive."
