Friday Night Football Games
Starting this Friday, we are going to start having the students sit in the stands at our home football game. If students are not sitting with their parents they may sit in Section G, Student Section, in the home team bleachers. Elementary students can sit in the upper half of this section, followed by middle school students working their way towards the bottom where the high school students sit. We will also announce it several times throughout the game.

Bus Evacuation Drills
The Lexington Local Schools Bus Transportation department has announced that they will hold the state mandated emergency evacuation drills on October 15. (Friday, October 16th rain date) The students will practice the drill on their way to school. Your student will still get the bus at the same time, they will do the drill once all of the students are on the bus. If you have any questions or concerns please call Robin at 419-884-2349.
Right to Read Week
The week of October 19-23 we will be celebrating Right to Read Week. We have many special events planned for that week. Each day we will have a special day:
Monday~ Bring you favorite stuffed animal to school
Tuesday~Wear an animal print or an animal shirt to school
Wednesday~ Wear your favorite hat to school
Thursday~ Wear your pajamas to school day (remember we will still go outside so be warm!)
Friday~ School Spirit Day!! Wear Purple and Gold or a Lexington shirt/jersey
Halloween will soon be here! As you think ahead and prepare your children’s costumes, I ask that you refrain from having them dress as anything that might be considered to represent the occult (such as devils, witches, Freddie, Scream) or anything that might be frightening to others. Also, please no hair dyes or excessive make up. Remember the students should not wear their costumes to school that day! (unless they are in kindergarten) They will have time before the parties to change. Thank you for your cooperation in this difficult matter.
