Mrs. Heaton's Homeroom

Where in the world is Mossy Oaks Elementary School?

We have a lot of visitors to our site and in the spirit of a new school year I thought I would highlight where our school is located (geographically).

Mossy Oaks Elementary School is located in Beaufort (pronounced bwe-fort), South Carolina on the coast between Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina.

Beaufort is a picturesque town that features a historic district with antebellum homes, quaint shops, and moss draped oak trees as well as modern developments and shopping. It is situated on the Beaufort River, which is part of the intercoastal waterway, and is only minutes away from the Atlantic coast.

Welcome Back To School

Students across the county will be heading back to school Monday, August 17, 2009 after a nine week summer break. We have several changes in our school from increased security to implementation of a new uniform policy.

Our questions for incoming students are…What are your first impression of all these changes? How do you feel about entering the fourth grade? What do you hope will be different this year? What are you looking forward to? What are things that about yourself that you want to work on this year?

Please pick two of these questions to answer using complete sentences. Before publishing your comment run through the following checklist:

  1. Did I answer two of the questions asked?
  2. Did I answer in complete sentences (reread your post)?
  3. Did I put spaces after periods and commas?
  4. Did I post my name (remember first name only)?

We ask visitors who are commenting to also note where they are from. Welcome back to school and we look forward to reading your replies.
