MYRTLE BEACH — Bridgewater Academy Charter School will have a back-to-school celebration Friday in honor of the grade it earned from the S.C. Department of Education, according to a news release from the school. The event will be held at the school, 191 River Landing Blvd., Myrtle Beach, from 5-7 p.m., and the public is invited, along with students and their families.
Bridgewater earned an A, up from last year’s D, based on student achievement and improvement in the 2012-13 school year. Principal Steve Wilson attributes the success of the academic year to the hard work of everyone in the school’s community, from its 140 students and their families to teachers and staff. The school serves students from kindergarten through grade eight.
The celebration will include games, music and other festivities in the cafeteria and/or on the back porch, weather permitting. For more information, call 843-236-3689.
