LADY’S ISLAND MIDDLE

• The Cougar Cheer Leaders recently had a fund raising event at  our local Arby’s Restaurant.  The plan for the fundraiser is to raise money for going to camp this summer. All the cheerleaders had a great time and worked really hard.

• Last weekend, LIMS held its first annual community yard sale. Numeracy Coach, Ms Chislom-Jones with a bright and cheery smile, said, “The yard sale was a blast and I was able to clean out my garage and attic. It was very well organized and the students did a great job holding up the signs.”
