As the spring season kicks off, this means a busy home stretch for many of our students. Next week marks the first round of state assessments for our students. In addition to state testing, our students are active with their many extracurricular activities. Whether participating in fine arts, athletics, FFA, 4-H, UIL academics, or various other academic or extracurricular opportunities, our students work hard to prepare to be at their best when competing against other schools and students. I appreciate their dedication to represent Lexington ISD at their very best. I believe that our students’ involvement in their respective activities allows them to gain additional skills that will benefit them as they grow to become productive, successful citizens. On another note, I also appreciate our coaches and sponsors who work with these students to help them be at their best to achieve success. The dedication that these educators display provides a lasting impact on our students, helping Lexington ISD be an outstanding school district and one that will do whatever it takes for its students. I look forward to reporting the results of the various contests and activities in which our students are involved in the coming weeks.
