Parents of students in grades 3-5,
Please pay close attention to the dates for state testing. It is extremely important that your child is present, on time, and does not leave early. We will start promptly at 8:00 and these tests are not timed so they have all day.
Also, remember students should :
- go to bed early - 8 hours of sleep or more is recommended.
- eat breakfast, whether at home or school.
- have a great start to their day and come to school with a positive attitude.
- be encouraged to his/her best!

Hello! I am Marie Kennedy and I am super excited about beginning my first year at Lugoff Elementary as a 2nd grade assistant. I was a 3k teacher at LFBCMC for 3 years but I have taught for 17 years in different age groups. I am a mother of three AMAZING children A’Lajah (16), Khalik (14), and Khamani (12). I am married to my middle school sweet heart Willie (Montez). In my spare time, I love to read, take walks, and spend time with my family. I am looking forward to an amazing school year.
From our Health and Wellness Team:Hello LES families! March is our 5210 challenge month when the Wellness Team encourages the entire school family to strive to meet the 5210 principles each day. These include:5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables2 or fewer hours of recreational screen time1 or more hours of physical activity0 sweetened beveragesThe goal is for these healthy behaviors to become daily habits for our students and their families so all reap the health benefits through daily practice. As a result, we become a healthier community! Please strive for 5210 for MARCH and keep it going in your family year round. Together, we can MARCH forward and be better!
Playground GuidelinesA Message from Dr. Lloyd:As you know, our school's playgrounds and newly established walking trail are open for community use, but there are guidelines. Please find attached a copy of the board policy so that we can keep our grounds safe, clean, and accessible for all of its users. The main thing we are having issues with right now are users bringing their pets onto the playgrounds. Please note that this is not allowed. We hope that you enjoy having access to these areas!
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation is pleased to announce that LES has been named to their 2022 list of America's Healtiest Schools! Congrats, Counts!
