The tradition continues! Our intro to art (high school) and kindergarten students have been busy collaborating over the last month for our annual stuffed monster art project. After reading The Color Monster by Anna Llenas, kindergarten students drew their own creative creatures and shared them with a high school student ready to stitch their design. The high school and kindergarten students worked together to finalize designs, pick fabric, and write a brief narrative about each monster. It is one of the very best days in the art room when the kindergarteners receive their finished monsters!

Congratulations to Payton Wiltz, the inaugural winner of the "Heart of Illinois Conference - CTE Scholarship"! If you know Payton, you know he bleeds purple & we couldn't be more proud of him and his accomplishments! In a star studded class of Seniors, Payton is one of the most selfless individuals of the group. He's not afraid to lend a hand and help in any way he can. We have no doubt he'll continue that as he continues to impact our community for the better. Way to represent Minutemen Nation and Lexington so well, Payton!

The Class of 2023 enjoyed our first ever "Senior Signing Day." Our seniors spoke with students from Kindergarten through high school about their future plans as well as favorite memories from school. Thank you to our seniors for all of their work on these presentations; our students were so excited to hear your goals and plans!

Lexington students were treated to a "Late Morning Show" with host, Mr. Deters today. Guests of the show included new Chief of Police Edmiaston, Officer Givens, and Officer Kolat. The opening jokes were not near as entertaining as learning about our officers, such as their backgrounds, activities they were involved with in school, their favorite teachers, and why they decided to become police officers. Today was a good reminder for all to be thankful and to feel blessed to have these three individuals and our other members of the Lexington Police Department working to keep our students, school, and community safe every day!

Congratulations to Alec Thomas who received the "Heart of Illinois Conference - Male Athlete of the Year" Award and scholarship! Among a very talented group of Senior athletes, Alec rose to the top with his many accomplishments and athletic achievements over the last few years. But more importantly he was selected because he is a leader and sets a tremendous example for others to follow. Minutemen Nation is proud of you and you have given our littlest Minutemen a goal to pursue after! #LexGo
