STEAM Day
This past Saturday was an unforgettable day for some students in Lexington Three as they had the incredible opportunity to "Shop With A Cop" at Walmart in Batesburg-Leesville! 🎁👮‍♂️ Select students were given a $200 gift card to embark on a shopping spree, accompanied by our fantastic School Resource Officers, members of the B-L Police Department, dedicated individuals from the VFW, and some of our district's caring social workers. Together, they made sure every moment was filled with joy and laughter! But the giving didn't stop there! Simultaneously, the Walmart in B-L hosted "Fill the Humvee," a heartwarming event sponsored by the BLPD. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we received over $500 in donations! 🚓🎁 A huge THANK YOU to everyone involved – our law enforcement heroes, community members, and all those who contributed. Your kindness and support have made a lasting impact on the lives of these students. 🙌❤️ May the spirit of giving continue this holiday season!

Lexington Three hosted its first ever Farm to Table event on Saturday, December 2nd at B-L Primary School. Select families were invited to attend the special farmers market where they received a $60 voucher to obtain items such as local honey, gallons of milk, sweet potatoes, pecans, peaches, grits, peas, butternut squash, tomatoes and so much more! Families also received food recipes that they could make with some of the items and could even sample the recipes! Our school nurses were also on hand with great health info as well. A special thanks to our Food Services Department for organizing the event and to the SC Department of Agriculture for providing the funding. What a great example of Panthers helping Panthers!

8th grade students in Mrs. Lindsay's science class at B-L Middle School have been working super hard the past few weeks on projects that answer the question "Can genetics save the world?" They were tasked with designing a GMO product that hasn't been invented yet that meets a global need. On Thursday, November 30th, they had to pitch their ideas to a group of pretend investors. (Similar to the tv show Shark Tank!) The end results left everyone speechless as students proposed some very creative ideas!

Our schools are rocking and rolling following our week-long Thanksgiving break! Over at B-L Middle School, students are enjoying having the SC Farm Bureau Agriculture Learning Lab at their school today. The Learning Lab teaches students about important South Carolina commodities and how many of them go from the field to our plates. The lessons are aligned to state learning standards, so students are able to apply math, science, English and social studies principles to agriculture.
