From the Principal

 Please visit the Lugoff-Elgin Middle School Facebook page for frequent posts about what's going on at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School.
Welcome to the school where understanding hearts and positive attitudes thrive.  Every day, students demonstrate understanding hearts as they help each other on projects and support each other through difficult times.  Teachers exemplify understanding hearts by showing compassion and concern for every student by offering after school tutoring sessions.  Student athletes display positive attitudes as they work hard on the field and on the court to represent Lugoff-Elgin Middle School with pride.  Teachers express positive attitudes as they work with colleagues to develop interdisciplinary units and incorporate a variety of instructional strategies into their lessons.  Community members and parents represent understanding hearts and positive attitudes by attending school sponsored activities and athletic events. Every stakeholder is an important member of the learning community at LEMS. Thank you for the many displays of understanding hearts and positive attitudes that make LEMS a great school.  

Let's see where our visitors are located in the world.



Dear LEMS Families,

This year Lugoff - Elgin Middle School is participating in a hassle-free fundraiser called Shoparoo. Nationwide, 7,000+ schools are already fundraising through Shoparoo and we see it as a great opportunity for us to make a difference this year.

All you need to do is take pictures of your sales receipts with the Shoparoo app made for your smartphone. It doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy. Every receipt submitted results in a donation to our school!

So, what are you waiting for? Simply download the free app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching ‘Shoparoo’ and then select our school. There is no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo. Be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join because every receipt counts!

If you have any questions please call me at 803-438-3591 ext. 6059. Thanks so much for your support.

Hope Lights the Way 

When the sun goes down, hundreds of luminaria light the way under the stars to 
celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember our loved ones 
who have lost the battle, and honor those who have fought back against the 
disease and won. This ceremony of light symbolizes the hope and perseverance 
with which we all continue to fight.

Give a gift to the American Cancer Society and keep the fire of hope burning
with a luminaria in memory of someone lost to cancer, in honor of someone still 
fighting, or in special recognition of someone who has beaten this disease. 

The suggested donation amount is $10 per luminaria.
