Students Compete at SCISA Literary Meet

Students from the lower and high school competed for the first time at the SCISA Literary Meet held in Orangeburg recently. Students participated in a variety of events such as storytelling, oral interpretation, poetry recitation, essay writing and speaking. Laura Kimzey sponsored the group and worked to help them prepare for their events.  All of the students did an outstanding job.  Special congratulations go to Zealie Kimzey who placed third overall in Dramatic Oral Interpretation.  We are so proud of all of these students!

Bowling Teams Bring Home State Titles

The LMA Bowling Teams both brought home state championship titles during the SCISA finals at Gamecock Lanes in Sumter on February 3.  The LMA boy's team dominated once again to bring home their fifth straight title.  The LMA co-ed team wrapped up the season with their first state title win.  Coach Jay Atkins contributed their success to the constant dedication and hard work of his team and the support from parents.  Congratulations Swampcats!!  

AR Students Celebrate Success

Accelerated Reader students who met their first quarter reading goal were treated to a day away from school.  The students, 108 in all, went to Chuck E. Cheese in Sumter for fun and games and of course, pizza!  We are so proud of these students for their hard work and determination in earning their points this semester. Thank you to parents and teachers for helping to instill a love of reading!  

Mrs. Godwin Receives Surprise from Chamber

Our very own Mrs. Sheree Godwin, K5, was the lucky recipient of a basket of classroom supplies to help start the new year off right.  Mrs. Godwin was one of several teachers selected from across the community by the Clarendon County Chamber of Commerce.  Thank you to the Chamber and Herald Office Supply for partnering to help make classrooms a little brighter.
