    The first quarter of school has gone by quickly. I’ve enjoyed seeing our sixth graders transition to middle school. They are making wonderful progress as new Leopards!

    Students began the 2015-2016 school year by learning how to make their mark. They participated in International Dot Day in September by reading the book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds. Students learned the importance of making their mark through a variety of activities which included decorating, creating, and celebrating with dots. Students who did exemplary work earned Dot Day Certificates.

    The communication process between the school and home is very important, and there are several communication tools available to parents at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School. Assignments, teacher contact information, upcoming events, and announcements can be found on our webpage at We have a Facebook page which is updated frequently with photos and classroom activities. You may also follow us on Twitter using the username LEMSLeopards. On Sunday evenings, you should receive a phone call from me that details the events for the week. If you are not receiving this information, please let me know. I encourage you to take advantage of these communication tools.

    Thank you for being an active participant in your child’s education. You can become more involved through the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and the School Improvement Council (SIC). PTO also has a Facebook page called Lugoff-Elgin Middle PTO. You can learn more about both of these organizations by checking out our website.

    I appreciate the honor of being your child’s principal. I am blessed by them on a daily basis. Let’s continue our efforts to develop Understanding Hearts and Positive Attitudes (UHPA) at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School.

    With UHPA,

    Karen Bullard, Principal
