Welcome to McCarthy Teszler
We have a wealth of activities planned for our students including our Girl and Boy Scout Programs. We also plan to organize our first Student Council and develop a Booster Club to support our Special Olympians. We want to invite parents and families to lunch, join the PTSO and participate in SIC meetings. We look forward to the quests and opportunities this year presents to us as we challenge our students to "Soar to New Heights"! Please contact me at 864-596-8491 if I can be of any assistance.
A Great Opportunity
Parents & Friends of McCarthy Teszler Students Don’t miss a great opportunity to help your school! This Holiday, in lieu of purchasing a gift for someone that has everything, consider making a donation of any size to the school in order to purchase an iPad for your child’s classroom! You will receive a gift card to give to your gift recipient. iPads provide a means for our students to communicate and engage them in instruction in a manner that is interesting to them. With this in mind, it is our goal to provide each classroom with an iPad this school year. Each iPad and protective covering will cost about $600. Obviously we cannot do this alone. Won’t you help by donating in any amount and we will in return, give you a gift card to give to your friend or family member letting them know that a gift has been given to the school in their honor. Your friends will appreciate knowing that their gift this year was a donation to help students of McCarthy Teszler School for many years to come!
You may contact Cheryl Revels at 596-8491 if you have any questions regarding our technology initiative. Thank you for considering this gift to our school as an alternative gift choice for a family member or friend.
In order to create and return a gift card to you for your gift recipient please donate by Wednesday, December 14th, 2011 Donation Form
Outdoor Natural Learning, Play and Sensory Area
Grand Opening Ceremony for the Outdoor Natural Learning, Play and Sensory Area was held April 15, 2011 at 10:00 am. We are very excited about our natural outdoor learning, play and sensory area. This project has been in the development phase for two years. The unique design of this area encompasses the five senses that are essential for the education of our students. It will be utilized as an instructional area, therapy venue and outdoor play area for all of our students ages three to twenty-one. The design is accessible for our students in wheelchairs and includes raised bed gardens, a raised fish pond, raised sand and water play areas, and a wheelchair accessible swing. A few of the many varied features includes two accessible slides, a sound garden, hammocks, amphitheatre, tree house, sensory gardens, labyrinth, analamatic sun dial, picnic shelter, basketball court, and art area. It is beautifully landscaped and will be enjoyed by the staff and students for many years to come. We look forward to sharing this experience during our grand opening celebration which will be announced in the near future.
