Welcome to the Lyman Elementary School Website!
School is helping all students develop the world class skills and life and
career characteristics of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate by
providing every student quality educational experiences in a safe, nurturing,
and engaging environment, enabling each individual to succeed in life and
function as a productive citizen. We
provide such an environment through the implementation of our district motto:
“Every Child, Every Day.” We strive each day to meet the diverse needs of our
students through effective teaching practices to ensure that every child has
the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Our faculty and staff are always seeking to learn new and
innovative strategies to help each student succeed. Students learn reading through a balanced
literacy approach which includes the use of the Journeys Literacy Program,
small group guided reading, reading intervention, and other literacy
activities. We are fully implementing
all aspects of our Read to Succeed Literacy Plan. This includes a 90 minute uninterrupted
literacy block, a 30 minute writing workshop, and a 40 minute intervention
block within our school master schedule.
Our school uses enVisions Math as the core of our math instruction as
well as using guided math strategies in order to reach all our students and
meet their needs. We continue to seek
ways to provide world class knowledge through rigorous standards and curriculum
while accomplishing even greater academic success in the future.
At Lyman Elementary School, we know that helping students
achieve world class skills while promoting life and career characteristics will
ensure a brighter future for every child.
Opportunities for students are
abundant in these areas at our school. Students have access to laptop computers
and iPads in the classrooms, as well as other tablet devices. Student leadership is encouraged through
participation in Student Council, Pride Patrol, and the Captains of the
Flag. Our School Counselor in
conjunction with our classroom teachers promote Character Traits each month and
weekly goals related to developing these life skills are stressed to all our
students in our morning messages each day.
Our students serve the school community through a variety of service
learning projects such as food drives, Relay for Life, Jump Rope for Heart, The
Humane Society, and March of Dimes.
Lyman also partners with Backpacks for Hope to provide food over the
weekend for numerous needy students in our school family.
Through the hard work and dedication of our students, staff,
and parents, Lyman Elementary has received Palmetto Gold Awards for absolute
performance and Silver Awards for Closing the Achievement Gap. At Lyman Elementary, we believe the school,
families, and community all share in the awesome responsibility of educating
our next generation of students.
Together, we can develop students with world class skills and life and
career characteristic to be successful in the 21st Century and
beyond. Together we will continue to
work to make Lyman Elementary an even greater place for our students to develop
these world class skills.
