A Message from Your Principal
May 15, 2019
I want to express great gratitude to Mrs. Vaden, fifth grade students, fifth grade mentors, and fifth grade parents for all of the hard work that went into creating the PYP Exhibition yesterday! It was wonderful to listen to students speak about their passions! Thank you to all that were able to attend to support our students!
Our year together is coming to a close in just 15 days. We do have some exciting events ahead, which include the Volunteer Thank-You Breakfast (5/29), our annual Talent Show (5/30), Fun Day (see below), and our Promotion Ceremony (6/6). The promotion ceremony will begin at 11:15, but plan to arrive a bit early, as this is a popular event!
Open House is tomorrow night. There will be brief announcements at 6:15 (in the MPR, if raining), with classrooms open from 6:30-7:30. I hope to see you all there to celebrate a great year!
~On Friday, May 31st, the Home and School Club will sponsor our annual Fun Day festivities. This is such a special day for all of our students! What makes it such a success is that the entire community comes together to literally make a fun day for our kids. The day begins with the Crazy Hat Parade. Then, students are treated to all sorts of activities on the lower field. The day culminates with the annual Moon Ball game! Please consider helping that day-please contact Beth Stark, if you can lend a hand. This day is wonderful, but it takes us all!!
~Please make certain to check the “other news” section! The district has recognized both Mrs. Vaden and Mr. Danny for their years of service. We are so grateful that they are part of Lexington School!
Thank you for all you do for Lexington School!!
All my best,
