    Great Happenings at Lower Richland

    Lower Richland High School Richland County School District 1 SC Bronze – Wellness Leader: Rachel Fobare

    Joining the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program has provided Lower Richland High School with the tools

    and resources needed to make their school a healthier environment. “The Healthy Schools Program

    inventory helped us to identify our areas of concern which allowed us to set goals and create an action

    plan,” said health teacher Rachel Fobare. Lower Richland staff implemented a salad bar in the cafeteria

    and improved the nutritional value of the food it serves to students outside of the lunch room as well. Staff

    are setting a healthy example for students by taking Zumba classes after school.

    From the Principal

    Dear Diamond Hornet Families,

    I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2014-2015 School Year! Summer has come and gone and now it is time to continue with the excellent traditions of Lower Richland, as well as to introduce exciting new programs and personnel. Lower Richland administration and staff has been busy preparing for another amazing year. Over the summer break the school has been cleaned, facilities have been updated, the STEM focus has continued, and the district has moved forth to implement the Digital Learning Environment where incoming freshman will be issued a laptop and protective backpack in September, with sophomores following in January. We are still very excited and proud of our scholarship total, 17.8 million dollars, and the highest in the district. The bar is set high for the class of 2015, but we know they can do it! Our dedicated staff has been working hard to ensure a successful start of school next Monday, August 18, 2014. Read more...
