A Message from Your Principal
April 18, 2018
I hope you all had a relaxing and rejuvenating Spring Break!
There is some very exciting news to share! Our Green Student Action Team, under the guidance of parent Lisa Keller, and in conjunction with the Daves Avenue Green Team, has made a difference in our world. The students campaigned to have the plastic packages containing a plastic straw, “spork” and napkin removed from the LGUSD cafeterias and replaced with biodegradable napkins, and forks to be taken and used when needed. They created awareness of the plastic straw problem, wrote letters to our representatives, and presented to the LGUSD Board of Trustees (BOT). The BOT listened and responded quickly to make the change, and Lexington, as well as all other district schools, is now “plastic straw free!” Action is integral to the PYP framework, and for students to see that their actions really can, and do make a difference in the world, is very powerful and important. I am so proud of them, and once again thank Lisa Keller for her passion and support of our students!
Lexington will be very busy next week celebrating Earth Week (April 23-28). To kick off the festivities, students have been engaged in creating recycled art masterpieces to display in the MPR. If you have time, come in and take a look!
