LTMS Highlights

Athletics

Student of the Month

We have awesome students at Lexington Trails and we want to recognize them. Each month, each grade level teacher and six Exploratory teachers will nominate a student of the month for our "Student of the Month" wall. These students, along with others, will be recognized at our quarterly Student Recognition Assembly. We will be livestreaming this event on Facebook for parents to see their student recognized!

Crisis Team Meeting

The safety of students is priority number one for our crisis team. Led by Mrs. Slater, this devoted group of teachers oversees all safety and crisis plans at LTMS. The state requires monthly drills for each school, and our crisis team makes sure that staff are always prepared and ready, no matter what the situation calls for. Our goal is to provide a positive, safe learning environment and to be prepared!

SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to LTMS! The dates are Monday, September 16th through Thursday, September 26th. It will be set up in the library and moved down to the gym for parent-teacher conferences on September 25th. Students will get to visit the week of September 16th with their ELA class. They can also visit before and after school or when a teacher gives them permission. Our goal for the book fair this fall is $4300! This will beat our total from last fall and give us more money to spend on books for the library! Come check it out!
