Update from Mrs. Dassing-November 2023
Dear Bengal Families,
As the first quarter has come to a close and we prepare for the 2nd half of the first semester, I want to share how proud I am of our Bengals’ hard work. We had a strong first quarter with academics, arts, and athletics!
- Academically-Our students have attended hundreds of Focus sessions, logged numerous hours in ILT and our academic lab to eliminate missing work or get additional assistance. Our first quarter course passage rate was over 95% and over 79% of our students have all A's and B's!
- Artistically-Our Bengal Marching Band has placed in every competition they have participated in and finished strong at the State Championship! Our music groups have had numerous students qualify for region and state and the Fall will see numerous concerts and shows!
- Athletically-We have celebrated our second full Varsity football schedule and ended a great season 8-1 and are headed into our first playoffs! .Our Volleyball, Cheer, Dance, Swim, Cross Country, Golf and Tennis have all had strong seasons and have brought home numerous medals and accolades.
Our students are working extremely hard both in and out of the classroom. Students at LBHS have volunteered across the Lowcountry from elementary schools to the Children's Miracle League and more! Our Bengals are exhibiting the I's of the Tiger (Intelligence, Integrity, and Involvement) in all they do!
We are looking forward to a great 2nd quarter and watching our Bengals continue to soar! Thank you for being such an integral part of our Beckham Family. Please let me know if I can assist in any way and don't hesitate to reach out directly at email@example.com.
Your very proud principal,

Mrs. Mandy Bulwinkle
Hi Bengals, my name is Mandy Bulwinkle. My husband Todd and I have 3 children ages 7, 12, and 14. I’ve served in various roles within the elementary and middle schools and am currently serving on the Moultrie Middle School SIC and PTO Board as Co-Treasurer. My oldest daughter Carson is a freshman at LBHS and I am thrilled to get involved in the new (to us) school. Thank you for putting your confidence in me for the School Improvement Council.
South Carolina SIC
In South Carolina, a School Improvement Council is an advisory council to the principal and school on issues related to school improvement. By law, every K-12 public school in South Carolina must have an SIC that is made up of parent, teacher, student (grades 9-12), and community member representatives. The principal is an ex-officio member of every SIC. An SIC may create additional ex-officio positions such as the school’s Teacher of the Year, PTA or PTO President.
Mr. Reid Elliiott
I am excited to serve on the LBHS SIC and am honored to have been chosen. My wife Kathryn and I have two son’s in the 9th and 11th grade at Lucy Beckham. They both attended Mt. Pleasant Academy and Moultrie Middle School. Both boys are involved in a variety of activities and I look forward to being a liaison for parents and the administration. I believe Lucy Beckham is one of the biggest assets to our community and parental involvement is critical. Thank you for the opportunity, and I look forward to serving.
Keep it Under 5!
While we often focus on academics, we would be remiss if we did not underscore the importance of good daily attendance. SC Law has outlined attendance parameters and we follow those in CCSD. We are here to help answer any questions you may have and want to remind you of the following:
All absences require a written explanation from the parent/guardian within three (3) school days of return from the absence. Written explanation of absences must include the student's name, parent/guardian's full name, parent/guardian's signature, date(s) of absence(s), and documentation of the reason for absence(s).
Absences in excess of ten (10) days per year will not be considered excused with a parent/guardian note unless they are accompanied by official medical or legal documentation.
If your student needs to leave school early, we have a process for that too. You can find all this information on our website https://www.ccsdschools.com/domain/3184.
Is your Bengal College or Career Ready?
Individual Graduation Plans have started!
Individual Graduation Plans have started!
The School Counseling Department is excited to have done Senior IGPs and have started 9th grade Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) meetings in the next couple of weeks. Parents should hear from their student's School Counselor soon with instructions on signing up for their IGP meeting through Calendly. Yearly IGP's are required meetings with School Counselors for students and their parents/guardians to discuss future planning. Students will not receive a pass or reminder for their meeting at school so parents should communicate meeting details with their student. Our School Counselors look forward to talking with you soon!
