Fulmer Middle School to reopen, Wood Elementary name change, New Bridge moved, school building update
From Dawn Kujawa, Lexington Two Communications Director
The 2019-20 school year will bring changes for some Lexington Two schools. Among them:
Fulmer Middle: Fulmer will be moving back to its newly renovated campus at 1614 Walterboro St., West Columbia, for the start of the new school year. Renovations added a second story to the school as well as new classroom and science lab space.
Congaree-Wood Early Childhood Center and Wood Elementary: The center, which adjoins Wood Elementary, is taking that school’s name. Wood will serve K4 through fifth grades.
New Bridge Academy — The district’s alternative school has moved to its permanent location at the former Davis Elementary School, 2305 Frink St., Cayce.
In addition to renovations at Fulmer Middle, work is continuing at other schools as part of the final phase of a $225 million, voter-approved building plan that has added three schools and upgraded others district-wide. This summer, Airport and Brookand-Cayce High both are being painted, and work is being done in Brookland-Cayce’s North Wing and Airport’s 700 Wing. Breezeways also are being enclosed at Airport.
The first day of classes for the 2019-20 school year is Monday, August 19.
