The Board of Trustees and administration of Lexington School District Two has scheduled a groundbreaking ceremony for the new elementary school. The plan is for the school to be built on Cougar Drive in West Columbia. The groundbreaking is scheduled for 5 p.m., Tuesday, April 4.
The new school will be built in similar design to the new Cayce Elementary School that is under construction. That school is off of 12 Street Extension.. The new school on Cougar will be a little bigger than Cayce Elementary, according to plans. The new school on Cougar Drive is being built for K-through- 5 students who will come from BC Grammar School No. 1 and from Pineview Elementary School.
