Fall Sports

Congratulations to all of our fall sports teams for a successful season. In addition to Lenape's Tennis Team, the 7th Grade Soccer and 8th Grade Field Hockey teams also won League Championships and the football team still has games remaining. Way to go Lenape!

Veteran's Day Project

We need your help. A photo collage is being organized to honor our nation’s heroes at Lenape on Veterans Day. If someone in your family served or serves in the military, please send your Social Studies Teacher a digital photo of that individual so you can add a personal connection to our Veterans Day presentation.The Lenape Middle School History Department, History Corps, Student Council, and Lenape Soul, will be organizing and honoring all of the photos to pay tribute to our nation’s Veterans.

Please visit Mr. Fash's school wires site for more information: http://www.cbsd.org/Page/16598#sthash.Hu22sJu7.dpuf

Lenape Student Ambassadors Recognition Program

Lenape Student Ambassadors have created a new program to recognize the efforts of members of our community. Nominees will be announced on Lenape Live TV and their names and accomplishments added to the Student Ambassador Tribe Pride Bulletin Board. Click here to nominate someone.

Toys for Tots

Please consider a donation of a toy to Toys for Tots. We are accepting new and unwrapped toys for children of all ages, November 7th-December 6th. (Grade level with most donations wins a treat.)

Thanksgiving Food Drive

Each year, Lenape holds a school-wide food drive to collect donations for families in our community. We have many families in need. We are collecting non-perishable food items and grocery gift cards that will be bundled into Thanksgiving baskets for families in our community. If you would like to contribute, please send your donation in to your child’s homeroom teacher between now and November 20th. The list of items needed can be found here. Thank you for all your help with this worthwhile cause.
