The SMES Golden Anchor Award!

Mrs. Cathy Peterson and her 3rd Grade students

Mrs. Paige Cornelius works with Ms. Hodge in Kindergarten

A seafaring ship has many important aspects; the hull, the sails, the rudder, bow or stern, however, one part of the ship is responsible for keeping the ship in one place or for allowing it to continue moving. The anchor must be strong enough to keep the largest ship from going anywhere, but at the same time, be versatile enough to let go and allow movement to take place. The SMES “Golden Anchor” award is presented to one certified and classified staff member each week that exemplifies the strength and versatility required to be a valuable part of the USS SMES. 


Zika Virus

You may have recently seen or read national news reports about the Zika virus. To date, we have had no local transmission of Zika virus in Georgia which suggests the virus is not present in our mosquito population now; however, that could change. 


Camden County Schools is partnering with the Coastal District Department of Public Health (DPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to prevent the potential spread of the Zika virus in our area and prepare for the unlikely possibility the Zika virus becomes present in our community. 

Please click here to read a letter outlining ways we are partnering with the Department of Public Health, CDC and the community  to address this concern.
