The Giving Tree and Winter Coat Drive
As the holiday season approaches please consider donating cold weather items for children to our “Giving Tree”. The special area teachers with the help of some wonderful PTA moms are collecting new or like-new winter coats, children’s hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and socks to donate to the Salvation Army Children’s Shelter. Donations can be dropped off in the library up through Winter Break or placed in any of the labeled boxes throughout the school. Items will be delivered to the shelter immediately after school on Dec. 19th. So, please get your donations in early! Thanks for your generosity and help in teaching our students the importance of helping those less fortunate than us.
Kentucky Performance Rating for Education Progress (K-PREP) Scores Released
The Kentucky Department of Education released information that helps gauge how well our school is doing in our effort to help every student master the skills they will need to excel in our increasingly global society. Test score reports for individual students will not be available for at least another month. As soon as we have those, we will share them with families of the children who took state tests last spring (our current 4th and 5th graders). According to the data released today, our school received a score of 73.5 on the state’s “Unbridled Learning” accountability system, which means we scored in the 86th percentile of all elementary schools in the state! Our school is rated Proficient/Progressing. We are very proud of the progress our students and staff are making since the Unbridled Learning accountability system began. In three years, we have maintained our position as a proficient school, but also one that is progressing. That means that we are a school that is continuously improving, and ensuring our school is growing stronger every year. For more information from our acting principal, Mr. Davis please see the attached letter.
Congratulations Alexandra Brown for being chosen as the 2014 Lexington Jr. Fire Chief! The students and staff of CME are so proud of you!
