From the Superintendent of Schools
Lexington Elementary School students won first place in the Academic UIL Competition last week. Apart from doing an amazing job of hosting the district meet, our elementary school worked tirelessly to prepare our children for the competition. For the second year in a row, the results of the meet were posted on our web site live as the judges made their final decisions. Parents and teachers from all of the competing schools had the opportunity of seeing their students’ results from anywhere, anytime.
Please go to our website and look at our students’ names posted there. I am proud of our elementary and technology staff for being so forward thinking in posting the scores. I appreciate the herculean efforts of our elementary staff to make sure our students were successful and our guests were made to feel welcome.
Our Lexington Eagles played Refugio in Heroes Staduim in the state semifinals last week. Although Refugio defeated us, I want to say how proud I am of our football team, the coaches and the LHS staff. The support by the Lexington community and fans was outstanding. To achieve the consistent results that our boys have displayed on the field takes hard work and grit. More importantly, to lose with class takes character. Our boys and our coaches have both. Only four teams in the state made it to the semifinals in a division and our young men made it there for the second year in a row. Congratulations to our players and our coaches for a great season. They made all of us very proud!
Lastly, congratulations to our Lady Eagles for winning the Lexington Basketball Tournament. Certainly, congratulations to Coach Horn and Coach Patschke for the great job they did, and to all the supportive parents and grandparents who are always there supporting our girls. They will play Florence at 5:00 p.m. this Friday in the APK Gym here in Lexington. Go Lady Eagles! We are proud of you and we wish you the best!
