February Service Learning Projects

Our Service Learning Projects for this school year have been focused on helping those in our community who have been affected by the October flood. Most recently, we've been collecting non-perishables. Thank you so much for giving to Harvest Hope Food Bank! 

Starting in February, Lower Campus is sharing the “LOVE” of Reading!

Richland 2 has created a reading program called Ready to Read. The district’s goal is to collect enough books (roughly 35,000) to provide Preschool - 2nd grade students with ten new or gently used books for summer reading.

In order to accomplish this, we are asking Lower Campus students to donate new or gently used books for 12 district schools.  Please place them in the drop box near the Lake Carolina kiosk.

For the month of February, the LCE Upper Campus student body will write letters and create cards for the first responders in our area. These men and women devoted countless hours toward flood relief and continue to work on a daily basis to keep us safe. We will be making our cards here at school, but if you would like to participate at home as well, we will be happy to include your letters of gratitude with ours. We are excited to thank these local heroes and show our appreciation!
