JH Softball Announcement
We are now opening junior high softball up to sixth graders for the 2016-2017 season. If you have a daughter that would like to play softball this year, please join us for the first practice on Monday, July 25th from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Practice will take place at Keller Park. If you have a copy of your daughter's current physical, please bring that with you to the first practice. We will have a parent meeting with all of the sixth grade parents only immediately following practice to discuss expectations for the season and receive practice and game schedules. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Coach Richart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The school year is just around the corner and Lexington kids need your help with school supplies. Last year we helped over 25 students, and we are hoping to do the same (or better) this year! We are once again offering our program called Adopt a Student. It will run much like the Giving Tree did for Christmas. If you need school supplies this year, you will need to contact us to let us know, and if you are able to donate the supplies for a student this year, we will get you a student’s shopping list.
So, if you are a church, club, organization, business or an individual, would you please consider adopting a student or students this year? Your help can change the lives of families in our community!
Please contact us, and we'll get you a student and a list of what they need. Supplies will need to be delivered to us by August 10th. Thank you for making Lexington a great place to live!!

Need Help With Back to School Supplies?
Does the aisle of back to school supplies at the local stores have you stressed out already? If you are wondering how you are going to fill supply lists for your kids this school year and would like some help, please let us know. The Main Street Moms and Lexington Kiwanis are once again offering our program similar to The Giving Tree we sponsor at Christmas. It is called Adopt a Student, and our hope is that we are able to match a donor with a child in need, to provide some of the supplies on their school supply list. If you have a child or children who need help, please contact us by July 28th with the grade, gender, class schedule (Jr. High and High School age) and contact information for supply pick up.

Many of our families have noticed that registration packets were not sent home at the end of the school year. In a continued effort to make the registration process easier for our families, our district will be moving to an on-line registration process for the 2016-2017 school year. Our secretaries have been hard at work getting this process set up for you through our new data management system called TeacherEase.
Lexington CUSD #7 families will be receiving an email in July with specific instructions on setting up your password in TeacherEase. This website will give our families access to your student(s) registration paperwork and fees, and will also be the website you will use to check grades, assignments, and lunch account balances throughout the school year. One of the great new features that we will be able to offer our families will be the ability to use credit/debit cards for transactions.
A second email will be sent out around July 8 when our on-line registration component is up and ready. From this time forward, every family will have two options:
1) Fill out the online registration forms at your convenience and bring in your health forms and payment to the school on August 3rd or 4th, or
(2) Fill out the online registration materials at the school on August 3rd or 4th when you bring in your health forms and payment. We will have several people available those days to walk you through the process.
Remember to schedule your appointments for school physicals, eye exams, and dental exams. Physicals must be turned in before the first day of student attendance.
* First time Pre-K Students, Kindergarten, 6th, and 9th grades must have a physical dated within one year of the start of the new school year.
* All students participating in sports must have a current physical.
* Kindergarten, 2nd, and 6th grades must have a dental exam
* Kindergarten and any new students must have an eye exam
