We would like to offer our hearty congratulations and best wishes to Lugoff Elementary School, which celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this week. The school is a valuable and integral part of our community and we are happy to help celebrate such a remarkable milestone in a proud and accomplished history.

The school was originally built in 1966 and was the first all-electric school in the county. Dedicated in August 1967, the school was originally built to serve 600 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. It originally consisted of two classroom buildings and an administrative wing, which housed offices, library, cafetorium and a health room. However, growth in West Wateree made it necessary for the Kershaw County School District to remodel and expand the school in 1984.

That growth continues and LES is one of four new schools being built as part of the 2016 school bond referendum. The new school, which is slated to be up and running in Dec. 2018, will be a 92,000 square foot, two-story building and, at its fullest capacity, will be able to accommodate some 800 students. There will be 38 classrooms, ranging from 800 to 1,200 square feet each; teacher workrooms on each hallway, computer lab, art room, library, gym and administrative wing.

So congratulations again, thanks for providing exemplary service to our children, and we look forward to celebrating when you move into your well deserved new digs!
