  • Attention Parents!  We need your help...


    It’s almost that time again! Our students will be taking the Palmetto Assessment of State Standard (PASS) and SC Ready assessment on April 26 - 27 and May 2 - 4. 


    It is very important that our students have a steady supply of energy while taking the PASS and SC Ready to function at their best.  We would like to provide a healthy snack for our student while they are taking the assessment. 


    To make this effort a success, we need your help! We are asking for the assistance of our parents to help us, help our students. Your donation will bring us one step closer to providing a snack for all of our students on each testing day. 



    District approved pre-packaged individually wrapped snacks: 

    • Pretzels
    • Cheez-It
    • Goldfish
    • 8 oz. bottle water



    If you have any questions about making a donation, please feel free to contact me by phone at (803) 738-7575 or via email at lakenna.pressley@richlandone.org.

    The Columbia Sigmas stopped by W.G. Sanders, their adopted school, to award the Black History Essay contest winner with a 1st place plaque and $25.00 cash.


    The brothers also presented Ms. Sylvia Robinson the school's teacher of the year with a gift basket  and Mrs. Kelly a $75.00 check in support of the upcoming beauty pageant and the school's STEAM program.  Thank you, Sigmas!

  • A Message from the Principal:


    I take great pride in being the principal of W. G. Sanders Middle School because of the wonderful staff, students and parents. I continue to be amazed with the rich history of traditions that help prepare students for a successful career in high school.


    This year we are implementing a wide variety of developmentally appropriate strategies in facilitating the learning for our students. Teachers continue to infuse technology into student lessons, and teachers continue to provide a challenging curriculum for our students.


    Stop by our parent and community center to find ways in which you can support our community initiatives. Also, take a look at our mission statement, our beliefs and our action plans. Give us feedback as we continue to monitor and enhance our instructional program.


    I look forward to working with all of you.
