From the Superintendent of Schools

Dr. Frances M. McArthur, PhD
Lexington ISD

Last week, Lexington eighth through twelfth grade students participated in Cool Day. Cool Day stands for Careers, Opportunities and Occupations for Lexington High School Students. It was started to expand our students knowledge of the variety of careers available and to show the relationships between the real world of work and what we teach.

The generosity of our community members with their time and resources continues to amaze me. We had over thirty volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to talk to our students about their careers and the importance of working towards their goals. I was impressed with the enormous talent pool in our community, and with our student’s interest and respect for the professionals that spoke.

I was also thankful for the tremendous workload that our counseling staff undertook to make COOL Day a success. Our counseling staff manages counseling, test coordination of each campus, volumes of paperwork, and much more, making their commitment to our trustees’ target for increasing college and career readiness in our students even more commendable.

I was also very proud of our Interact students who worked as photographers, greeters, material handlers, hall monitors, hospitality room attendants and more.
