2016 District 7 KMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival for Strings
Congratulations to members of the Leestown Orchestra for participating in the 2016 KMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival for Strings. The event was held at LTMS on Saturday, November 19th. During the past seven weeks, students have practiced at home and after school for this event. The students performed solos, duets, and quartets for a judge. Each judge evaluated their various elements of musicianship and performance technique. Playing in front of a judge is a character building moment for many students. Sixty-four (64) orchestra students from Leestown Middle School performed on Saturday. This was highest number of participants from any school (high school or middle school) in District 7. All of our students received Proficient and Distinguished ratings. Please congratulate our students on their musical accomplishments. We are so happy for you! Way to go, Chargers!
Leestown seventh-grader gets head start on saving for college
Obadiah Hamilton, a seventh-grader at Leestown Middle School, received a $1,000 college savings plan account after participating in the “On Your Mark, Get Set … Save for College!” summer reading program. Obadiah and his family accepted the prize on Nov. 7 at the Lexington Public Library, which also received $500 for future reading programs. He was among the eight recipients chosen at random from across the state.
The Kentucky Education Savings Plan Trust (KESPT), which is the state’s official Section 529 College Savings Plan, teamed with the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives to offer “On Your Mark, Get Set … Save for College!” to emphasize the importance of reading year round and saving early for school. Thousands of children participated at libraries across the Commonwealth, and more than 4,600 families entered for a chance to win a KESPT college savings plan account.
“Our goal is to increase awareness with families across the state, and the libraries are an excellent partner,” said David Lawhorn, KESPT manager. “Families who start saving early for higher education are more prepared when their children go off to college, and they are more likely to avoid overwhelming student loan debt.”
Life Skills Classes Recieve Grant from the Kentucky Beef Council
Mrs. Jarvis' Life Skills class has been awarded a Grant of $300 from the Kentucky Beef Council. The money will be used to allow Leestown students to produce new and exciting recipes using Beef in the Cooking Lab. The Beef Council will also be providing reading materials to aid in lessons on the importance of protein in the diet.
“Beef In the Classroom” is a grant program funded by beef producers through their Checkoff administered by the Kentucky Beef Council. This program provides financial support for the use of beef products in middle and high school Family and Consumer Science, Culinary Arts, Meat/Food Science & Animal Science courses. It reinforces lessons about lean beef selection, storage, preparation and nutrition.
