Ohio Achievement Tests are being replaced by PARCC or Next Generation Tests.
The State of Ohio is asking that students take these assessments online through the
use of an electronic device or a computer. Schools that do not have the capability of
testing all students electronically are able to give these tests through traditional
paper and pencil. We will be administering the paper and pencil version of the tests for the 2014-2015 School Year. Please visit http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Testing/Ohio-s-State-Tests
Do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions relating to these assessments.
Currently, we have used 4 snow days. We can use five before we have to make days up per our Lexington policy. If we have two more between now and Presidents’ Day we will come to school on Presidents’ Day. If we have more snow days to make up after that it will be on Monday, June 1 and so on. The most we will make up will be five days, therefore, the latest we will go to school would be Thursday, June 4th.
Yearbooks will go on sale from January 12 through January 30. The cost will be $11 per book.
In early February your student will get a $10 raffle ticket for a split side of beef donated by Mary Anne’s Meat here in Lexington. There will be more information coming home in late January.
