We are so, so grateful for the nonprofit organization SOLE Stepping and all of the volunteers who came out to B-L Elementary School on December 5th. Smiles were plentiful as each of our third, fourth and fifth grade students received a brand new pair of shoes for free as well as a handwritten note of encouragement. What a great day in Lexington Three!

Students in Mrs. Shealy’s, Mrs. Norton’s, and Mrs. Smith’s classes are participating in Clemson University’s Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program. Through this six week program, students have the opportunity to participate in hands-on, interactive lessons that teach the importance of healthy habits. Students will learn to choose healthy snacks, develop healthy eating habits, increase physical activity, and practice safe food handling. These classes provide real-world examples and background knowledge for students that tie to the South Carolina State Science Standards.
Today, our Panther students gathered for a delightful Thanksgiving-themed lunch and it was a feast to remember! 🍽️🍁 A huge shoutout to our incredible Food Services Department for always going above and beyond to make sure our students are treated to healthy and delicious meals.
B-L Primary and B-L Elementary Schools were recognized by the SC Department of Education today for their efforts in prioritizing physical education and physical activity. Ben Miedema, the Education Associate for Health and Physical Education for the Office of Assessment & Standards, presented certificates to Mrs. Mowry and Coach Bouknight from BLPS and Coach Evans and Ms. Yaworski from BLES. Both of these schools were among those that met the Students Health and Fitness Act requirements for weekly minutes of physical education and physical activity during the 2022-23 school year.

The National Weather Service is forecasting that a line of severe thunderstorms will be passing through our area starting this afternoon (Monday, August 7th). Part of this forecast includes damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 to 70 miles per hour. These conditions could affect the safe operation of school buses as the South Carolina Department of Education does not allow buses to operate when wind gusts are greater than 40 miles per hour. As a result, Lexington Three will be dismissing all of its students one hour early today. Click to read more: https://www.lex3.org/article/1193230
