7th grade families,


7th grade will be taking their first field study to Columbiana Center on October 14, 2016. Information and permission slips were given through your child's Math teacher. All forms will also be collected through Math teachers. If you are interested in chaperoning please contact asevon-lynch@lexington1.net for more information.


We are excited to begin student-led conferences this school year! This is a time when students will talk to their families about their learning and academic progress. Conferences aren't until February, but we want you to have these dates well in advance! Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 1- Thursday, March 2, 2017 from 4:00-7:00 P.M. Your child's conference day and time will be coordinated through their crew leader. For now, please note these days on your calendar because we don't want you to miss it!
