Circle of Friends

Lexington Middle School Circle of Friends has recently kicked off their 2018-2019 school year. The grade level groups meet every other Thursday over lunch.  Circle of Friends is a group of peers who provide students with Autism the opportunity to interact on a daily basis while practicing social skills and promoting the acceptance of all students.  In the past, the group would also meet for breakfasts and have holiday parties that included a shopping trip to pick out gifs for each other. Circle of Friends depends on donations from our community to be able to provide events for students.

We Have Spirit! Yes, We Do!
School Employees Demonstrate their Support for TEAM Day

For just a $5 donation, employees of Lexington Public Schools dawned gear or team colors from all athletic levels, and a variety of different sports. Of course our favorite were those who wore our own school team, but at the end of the day everyone was a winner for being the “Biggest Fan” and supporting the kids in our local TeamMates Mentoring Program.

Across the TeamMates organization, more than 8,000 youth in the TeamMates Mentoring Program see their Biggest Fan once a week during the school year when they meet with their TeamMates mentor. Mentees receive support and encouragement as their mentor advocates and cheers them on through their school years providing hope and a positive vision for their future at the post-secondary level.  

TeamMates Mentoring Program of Lexington is so pleased with the support of the LPS Staff Members and their efforts to generate awareness for the need of mentors and financial support for our Chapter.

If you missed out on TEAM Day and would like to support the Lexington TeamMates Chapter, we invite you to remember us on Give BIG Lexington Day this Thursday, November 15th, and/or join us at our Annual Tailgate during the basketball games on Thursday, December 6th  starting at 5:30pm in the Lexington High School cafeteria.

For more information on how you can support our local TeamMates Chapter or become a mentor in our local chapter, please contact:  Torri McCracken 308-324-1255/ torri.mccracken@lexschools.org.

The TeamMates Mentoring Program was founded in 1991 by Tom and Nancy Osborne to provide support and encouragement to school-aged youth.   The TeamMates Mentoring Program currently serves more than 8,000 youth in more than 150 chapters across Nebraska and Iowa.  To be a mentor, call 1-877-531-8326 or go to www.teammates.org.   


Christmas Concert
The middle school band is working hard preparing for their concert on December 13th!  Starting at 7 pm the Middle School choir and band will be performing different songs ranging from holiday music to more traditional pieces.  We encourage everyone to arrive early as typically this is a well-attended event.  Both the choir and band have worked hard and look forward to sharing their talents with the community!  

Veteran's Day Quilts

After writing for the Patriot Pen and reading about the Vietnam Memorial wall, students were excited to get creative for Veteran’s day! Each Language Arts class created a “quilt” that had to follow a theme. Each student had one square to fill, and all squares had to come together to create an artistic piece.The themes chosen for the quilts were as follows: 

* Thank you to all Veterans
* Soldiers
* Families United
* Coming Home
* Memory of those Lost
*Different Wars
*Branches of Military
*Military Appreciation

The quilts of both 8th grade, Patriot and Liberty, teams will be displayed during the Veteran’s day program. Afterwards all 10 quilts will be distributed to different locations around the community: Dawson County Museum, Dawson Utilities, Great Western Bank, Teps, Dawson Public Power, Grand Generation Center, Public Library, and Runza. 

Thank you to all of our Veterans for all that you do!
