Grits for Grands date change!

Grands HeadingWe are so excited to announce that our date for Grits for Grands is Tuesday, September 19th! (We moved it back a week in case the weather doesn’t cooperate!) 

Can’t wait to see you!



We asked… and you came through!

We sent out a call for help to get more binders and materials for our AVID learners and leaders.  We are so grateful for the outpouring of help and donations! Our families are simply THE BEST. Lonnie B. Families donated money, contents to go in the binders, and even binders ready for usage! One of the families sent their monetary donation with a beautiful little card, so we have the card as a reminder that when we try our best to help our kids, others will step right in and assist with the cause!! Thank you! With much appreciation!



We need you! 

Be here and on time! You count every day! 

For Friday! 

Show your team spirit and wear your favorite college colors on Friday! Lonnie Bees are college and career bound!

First Day for our Bees!

We are so excited to welcome you tomorrow to the first day of school! Our doors will open at 7:30am.  You are welcome to park and walk your child in! 🙂

Please let the teacher know how your child will get home these first few days. We want to make sure they get home safely and efficiently. Please bear with us these first few days with dismissal. The carpool line is especially long and children are learning the procedures to exit quickly!

We hope you got to enjoy the awesome eclipse today!

See you soon! It’s going to be a #premieryear at the hive…. think BIG bees…. it’s all about #learnleadlove and believing you CAN! bumblebee

We need some college FLAGS!

We are collecting college flags! If you have one that you’d like to donate or one to spare, we’d be MOST appreciative! Just bring to the front office! Thank you for your support of our bees… we’re growing the SC Graduate right here at Lonnie B! 🙂 We love HBCUs, out of state colleges, private colleges, public colleges! We love them all. We want our bees to know what opportunities await them after the SC Graduate!


Foster Grandparents!

This is such a wonderful experience for us at Lonnie B. Nelson…. check out our very own Grandma on the front page with one of our bees!

We’d love to have MORE Grandmas!

Foster Grandparents spend summer at Camp Sunshine

This summer, seven Foster Grandparents are volunteering at Camp Sunshine, an eight-week day camp for individuals with physical, intellectual or developmental disabilities sponsored by the Richland County Recreation Commission.
The camp is an opportunity for children with a diverse set of special needs to have fun with structured activities. The Foster Grandparents nurture the campers by holding their hands and helping keep them calm and safe.  They additionally serve as door monitors and assist with feeding the campers.
We are grateful to Foster Grandparents Emma Addison, Lillie Anderson, Mattie Bookhart, Patricia Grant, Dorothy Johnson, Thelma Miller and Inez Speaks, who are giving of their hearts and time this summer to support and encourage disabled children.
