Mrs. Brazell's ELA classes at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School celebrated Decades Day . Students -- such as (from left) Camille Sullivan, Sarah Hardin, Molli Smith, Tyjah Steele, Kara Hayes, Madison Guthrie and Katelyn Vandevander -- researched different aspects of the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s and created Glogsters to present their research.

Crews begin demolishing the band room of the old Camden Middle School (CMS) campus Wednesday on Laurens Street. Following CMS' move to McRae Road several years ago, the Kershaw County School District attempted to sell the property twice to developers who had proposed creating a new residential area by extending Jordan Street south to Jordan Street. Neighbors fought the move, leaving the property vacant for years and subject to vandalism.
