From the Principal

Please join my family and me as we send our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Senator Pinckney and our fellow South Carolinians lost in the tragic events in Charleston. Senator Pinckney was a wonderful advocate of the Dreher community and was in constant support of our schools. He will be deeply missed. We hold Mrs. Pinckney, our colleague, and her dear children in our hearts as we honor Senator Pinckney's message of unity and compassion in our works and daily living.
