As summer draws to an end, the familiar routine of buying school supplies, checking school calendars, and early morning rushes begins. As teams of tiny bodies armed with bags full of books, pencils, and other various supplies amass upon the campus of Lake Carolina Elementary each morning, yawning and slowly making their march off of busses and through the doors, many parents ask, is this the right place for my child? Lake Carolina Elementary assures that each child explores their intellectual curiosity by offering unique activities that prepare children for the next stages of learning in an environment that helps foster their creativity and wonder.

Students of Lake Carolina Elementary are exposed to a lot more than the average American student due to unique programs such as their “1 Two 1” program, which is a computing initiative aimed at offering students the ability to utilize technology to expand their educational resources. Other programs that the school offers includes fitness, guidance, reading, recycling and even something called HET/ITI (Highly Effective Teaching (HET) / Integrated Thematic Instruction (ITI)). Theses programs offer students the ability to keep up with the latest teaching methods that will help them develop social learning through social methods as well as through movement of body. There is no doubt that Lake Carolina Elementary is perhaps one of the most progressive schools in terms of their teaching styles and initiatives. The test scores definitely speak for themselves.

According to School Digger®, “In 2014, Lake Carolina Elementary ranked better than 97.9% of elementary schools in South Carolina. It also ranked 2nd among 21 ranked elementary schools in the Richland 02 School District.” The school is making such great strides in terms of staying current on educational methods and preparing their students for the various wonders of life.

They say it takes a village to raise a child; if that is the case, then Lake Carolina should be the village you choose. The families in Lake Carolina definitely help cultivate an excellent social environment outside of school and the teachers there are true professionals at what they do. It is due to the efforts of the staff at Lake Carolina Elementary that Lake Carolina as a community will assuredly have future citizens that embody the character, strength, and prestige that the families within the beautiful housing community represent.

“Sauce of the South; S.C. is the New Home of Barbecue”

“Sauce of the South; S.C. is the New Home of Barbecue”

In the Caribbean they barbecued to preserve the meat, early American pioneers placed a pig over a pit, anyway you cut it barbecue is one of the oldest traditions. That tradition still thrives but with one new realization; it’s all about the sauce and South Carolina has plenty of it. The world of competitive barbecue has transformed the prestigious time honored tradition into an art form which would impress even the most discriminating aficionado. Barbecue is no longer just a way of cooking meat, but is now a fun and popular spectator event for families to enjoy. South Carolina has taken the lead in this quality culinary art due to their unique sauces and blends which have become so popular that South Carolina’s dept. of tourism has built entire adventures around them (

Few things are more romantic than South Carolina’s unique golden blend of sweet, tart barbecue sauce sinking deep in pulled pork. The thick golden liquid has more than a unique color and flavor to go along with it, it’s got history and an origin leading back to Germany. The South Carolina Barbecue Association even provides information on the history and origins ( Rather than the ketchup based barbecue sauces that most are accustomed to, this quality sauce will leave a lasting impression on your taste buds.

So what exactly is this golden liquid that South Carolinians so lovingly glaze onto grilled pork? The answer to that question rests in the hands of the ancestors of the German immigrants that moved to the area in the 1700’s. These grill masters seem to make one thing clear, in South Carolina the word “Barbecue” means “Pork”. The sauce recipe which is hundreds of years old, is arguably the oldest sauce in the nation. Although the debate between whether it is best to lather on the deliciously tangy liquid while grilling or after, one thing has made itself abundantly clear; the popularity of both the vinegar and pepper style mustard sauces is only increasing. The only thing that is sweeter than South Carolina Barbecue is the company it inspires. Just ask the residents of Lake Carolina, even better, attend one of their many events held throughout the year and try the golden pride of the south for yourself.
