From the Principal

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Words do not begin to express my gratitude for your support of our BoosterThon Fundraiser. This has been a great experience for our students as they learned about community and giving back. This program taught our them about fitness, character, and leadership and culminated in a wonderful fun run that I know they will never forget! For those of you that joined us for the fun run, I know you could feel and see the excitement, enthusiasm, and enjoyment in the air. This is what we experienced every day for eight days as the BoosterThon team worked with our students and teachers and became a part of our LES family. While they will be leaving our campus, I am convinced that the spirit of this program will live on for many days to come.

Make-Up Kindergarten Registration Day

Make-Up Registration for Kershaw County School District's (KCSD) 2015-16 four-year-old and five-year-old kindergarten classes will be Thursday, March 5. Times to register here at LES are 9:00 - 1:00 and
3:00-6:00.  We can't wait to meet our new students and their families!

What to bring?
Kershaw County School Board policy requires parents to bring the following documents to enroll a student for the first time: a copy of the child's birth certificate, the child's South Carolina Certificate of Immunization, a parent/guardian's valid South Carolina ID such as a driver's license, a tax document with the current and correct address, a check stub with the current and correct address, and either a mortgage or lease agreement or legally notarized documentation from the landlord. A child's registration will not be complete without this documentation.

Jump Rope for Heart

We are continuing our Jump Rope for Heart campaign this month.  The students are raising money for the American Heart Association.  Lugoff Elementary's PE program will benefit from the money raised as we will get free equipment based on the amount raised.  The students have until Monday, March 2 to turn in their money. The students will jump the week of Feb. 23rd-27th during their regular PE class.  The classrooms are also engaging in a friendly competition to raise money as well. The top 3 classes to raise the most money will receive an extra PE class and also prizes for the entire class and teacher from Ms. Carmon. We hope you will continue to encourage your child in helping this great cause.
