Busy Year for LMS Student Council

April 18, 2018

The Lexington Middle School Student Council has had a very busy and productive year. Our most recent project was a food drive that was held in March. All seven Teams at the Middle School competed against each other to see who would win a free movie at the Majestic.  This ended up being one of the most successful food drives held here at the Middle School (between 4500-5000 food items were donated). In a very close competition, the 8th grade Patriot Team came out on top. The food items will be donated to families of need in the Lexington area.

Other activities and events that the Student Council has been involved with this school year include:

  • Volunteering to help with the Red Cross Blood Drives held here at the Middle School.
  • Assisting with the Mobile Food Pantry held the first Thursday of each month.
  • Made cookies and visited residents of Brookdale Senior Living during the Holiday season.
  • Organized and sold Hot Cheetos before Valentine’s Day with the proceeds going to the Rotary Club to assist with projects to benefit Lexington.
  • Halloween Fun Night with a movie and fun activities for LMS students.
  • Organized Red Ribbon Week, which is a national recognition week celebrating being drug and alcohol free.
  • Assisting with the “Lights After School” event, which celebrates after-school programs.
  • End of the school year “Variety Show”.  Featuring various talents here at the Middle School.
