For the past two weeks, Westview Primary's youngest learners have immersed themselves in all sorts of colors.
In order to learn the names of different colors, the school's kindergarten and CERDEP students have participated in "Color Days", and every day they were encouraged to wear a specific color.
The dress-up days wrapped up on Sept. 10 when they were told to pick any color they wanted to wear to school. Some students dressed up in their favorite color, some wore tie dyed shirts and some students sported multiple colors -- lots of girls enjoyed wearing rainbow-themed skirts and dresses while boys particularly liked wearing super-hero themed shirts with lots of color.
Check out photos from the last day of Color Days in the photo gallery.

As the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) works to track cases of COVID-19 across the state, there is an understandable delay in reporting confirmed cases in public schools. Berkeley County School District is committed to providing stakeholders with accurate and timely information so the BCSD COVID-19 Case Dashboard has been updated to reflect the number of confirmed cases reported directly to Berkeley County School District. These numbers will be updated every business day to provide our community with a more accurate accounting of confirmed cases in Berkeley County schools.
The content of this database is general information for each location. Any necessary contact tracing is conducted by SCDHEC. This information is updated at the close of each business day. Please note the numbers provided are numbers of confirmed cases reported to the Berkeley County School District and are 14-day cumulative counts.
