No More Sickness...No More Ice...Please!

We really wanted snow...enough for a snowman, one long weekend, and snowcream.  We got thick ice, roads so slick we couldn't move, and until last Friday, not enough snow for a smile. Who knew when schools closed on 2/12 and 2/13 for multiple illnesses, it would take 12 days before we would see each other again.  I guess that made coming back to school even sweeter on Monday! Of course, the little ones were quick to show how happy they were to see their teachers and their friends.  The middle school students were quicker to tell me how glad they were that we didn't have school, but I know they were glad to get back to their friends, their teachers and for some, even their lessons and some homework.  This week we have had 4-H speeches (check out LCSS's FaceBook page) with some awesome young people who can speak like seasoned adults; a return to volleyball practice and games; soccer practice, football practice, and baseball practice. Volleyball is still going strong at LMS, and the girls are great! (Let me warn you...if you don't have quick reflexes, watch where you sit!) The first baseball game is March 9th, and the soccer jamboree is March 7th. Go the LMS website for details.  We'll be announcing a new addition to Physicial Education at both schools during the last 9 weeks with coverage in the local newspaper and information coming home to selected grade levels.  Stay tuned.  So, as you see, it did not take us long to get back in the swing of things at LCSS.  I am glad to be back with my colleagues at the Central Office and have the opportunity to get my "kid fix" during the day or at after school care or at a volleyball game (as long as I can remember to duck!) 

School Board Appreciation Week January 25-31, 2015

This is School Board Appreciation Week, and our system is blessed beyond measure to have a caring and responsive group of school board members who are engaged with and for our students and teachers.  Teachers needs are met in the classroom in order to meet the learning needs of our students.  Our board is concerned with how to ensure student learning is maximized, but they are equally concerned that our buildings are clean, safe, secure, and pleasant places to grow and learn.  I am so thankful to work for these individuals and with them. Last week, LMS said thank-you to the board with coffee and homemade cakes and pies and cookies from the faculty before the board meeting which were delicious and much enjoyed and appreciated! Today, CES is hosting a pot-luck lunch from our great CES faculty and staff cooks for the board members as a token of appreciation!  Look above and click "About LCSS" and then click on "Board of Education"...there you will see the picture of our board members. If you are a faculty or staff member, student, parent, or community member, thank Rob Helms, Jim Terry, Jack Hinson, Carl Cooley, David White, Chad Wood, and DeAnne Pace for always putting our girls and boys first! 

January Ends...Colds, Strep, Flu...Any Snow?

LMS was hit really hard last week with strep, flu, and the stomach bug.  At the end of the week, our little ones at CES began to show the same symptoms. Everyone says we need "a good snow" to kill the germs.  I am not sure if people want a good snow to kill the germs or if people just want a good snow!  Keep your eyes on the weather forecast for Sunday night.  Right now it looks like there's more that will happen on Sunday night, February 1st,  than just the Super Bowl.  It has to ice and snow quite a bit for school to close for us...we do not have buses on little country roads or icey bridges like the county systems around us do. I always do my snow patrol beginning at 4:00 am and several times afterwards along with others the Lexington Police Department and the Highway Patrol. IF school is going to be dismissed a call is made to Z-99, Channel 7 in Jackson, a notice is placed on our Facebook page, it's tweeted from @lexcitysupt, emails are sent to all of our staff AND the call is made to the homes of our students by 5:30 am. So no matter if New England or Seattle wins Sunday, keep your eye on the Weather Channel, too. 

Homecoming Week!

It's great to be in the Minutemen Family!  Homecoming is fun everyday and especially great when the homecoming court is recognized.  Both teams played very well, the cheer squad did some outstanding routines, and the band added so much to the spirit of the night.  The week of January 26th is a big game at home against USJ on Tuesday and a road trip to Savannah to the Best of the West tournament on Thursday.  We already know who the Best of the West is, don't we? Go Red!
