Hive Happenings at South Lexington February 6

South Lexington Schools PTO

We are excited to have our first official FTO since COVID at South Lexington. At our first meeting, we nominated our FTO representatives. If you could not attend the meeting - DON'T WORRY - there will be other meetings and ways to get involved in supporting South Lexington. Please, be on the lookout for meeting dates and times.

We are off to a great start, but we still need your help joining us for SIT meetings. You are welcome to join the meeting virtually if you cannot attend at the regular meeting time. Our regular scheduled meetings are on the second Wednesday of the month at 3:30. The next meeting is on February 8. Please get in touch with Dr. Richards or Mrs. Blackburn to get the link for the meeting.

Bee's with a Beat

In Mrs. Franks' music classes, we are learning about how music changes. It can be loud (forte), soft (piano), fast (allegro), or slow (largo). As you are listening to music at home or in the car, your student can identify the dynamics (how loud or soft) and tempo (speed) of the music!
