Week of February 17th

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  Tomorrow is a weather make-up day for the Hurricane Day back in September, therefore we look forward to seeing our students bright and early in the morning.  I want to give a shout-out to our Boys’ Basketball Team who won the first ever Lex Ten conference tournament this past week.  Congrats are also in order for the LMS Dance Team for their performance yesterday at the Chapin Dance Competition.  Next week, there are no after school events at LMS.  Let’s have a great week!

LMS Recognized as a Common Sense School

LEXINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA—Common Sense, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of media and technology, has recognized Lexington Middle School as a Common Sense School.

Lexington Middle has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate, while preparing them for the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying. With the right support, kids can take ownership of their digital lives, engage with real issues, and change their communities for the better. The recognition acknowledges our school’s commitment to creating a culture of digital citizenship.

“We applaud the faculty and staff of Lexington Middle for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students’ education,” said Liz Kline, vice president of education programs at Common Sense Education. “Lexington Middle deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large.”
