This year, the PTO will again be participating in the Labels for Education program. Through this program we can collect UPCs from participating products to earn points that can be redeemed for FREE educational merchandise for our school.  Many of these products are ones that you are already buying or already have in your cupboards.

As in the past, Labels for Education can be found on Campbell's soup labels. But did you know they are also on Goldfish crackers, Dannon yogurts, Post cereals, V8 juices, and BIC pens? For a complete list of the products where you can find and clip a UPC, visit

You can send your labels/UPCs in to school with your child, and there are also collection boxes located at Lexington Finer Foods and the Lexington True Value.  Thanks for your continued support of our school!

Read To Dogs at the Lexington Public Library PDF Print E-mail

Lexington Library has started a new program called "Read to Dogs."  We currently have two dogs visiting us, and 6 kids enjoyed reading to them already!  Your child will get 15 minutes where they can read a book of their choice to a dog while the dog lays and enjoys a story! The dates set up so far are as follows: Thursday, on November 13th, December 4th and December 18th.  Time slots for each of the dates are 6:00pm, 6:15pm, 6:30pm, and 6:45pm.  Call the library today to register! 309-365-7801

All of the dogs are registered therapy dogs through Therapy Dogs International.  This program encourage children to read by providing a non-judgemental listener and furry friend to read to that won't laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them.   The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way.

Lexington, Illinois is built on many traditions, including their Christmas on the Prairie craft show which is held, annually, on the first Saturday in December. Christmas on the Prairie has been going strong for over twenty years, and was originally started to welcome people into our town to enjoy the amenities. This year, Christmas on the Prairie will take place from 9am to 2pm on December 6th. The craft show, which is held in the Lexington High School gymnasiums, consists of over 70 vendors. There will also be Horse and Buggy Rides, by Country Lane Carriage, for $1 available at the school from 10am to 1pm. The Lexington Leprechauns 4H club will be hosting a free breakfast with Santa from 9am to 11am and the St. Paul Lutheran Church youth group will have breakfast and lunch concessions available for purchase. While you are busy shopping for those one of a kind Christmas gifts, join us in listening to holiday music performed by our local musician, Elliot Sedgwick. Elliot Sedgwick, will perform starting at 11:30am. Lexington Main Street Moms will host a children’s shopping area, on the stage in the gymnasium, with gifts $5 and under. All proceeds from the children’s shopping area will benefit our giving tree for local families in need this holiday season. At 1pm, in the school library, the Lexington Council of Churches will be hosting a free birthday party for Jesus. All children are welcome! Join them for crafts, a story, games, and birthday cake! We will be having door prizes (drawn every hour) and Lexington’s Kiwanis club will be offering raffle tickets for many items, including a handmade quilt by Anita Revelle. Raffle tickets will be drawn that day at 2pm. You do not need to be present to win. In addition to all of these events that are held at the school, many local businesses will be having open houses and specials throughout the day. The Personal Touch Sewing Company will be hosting a Mother, Daughter and Doll brunch during Christmas on the Prairie at 9:00am and 10:00am. The price of the brunch will be $10 for mother, daughter, and one doll. Reservations for the event at Personal Touch Sewing are required; please call Sue Davis at 309-275-3764. Personal Touch Sewing will also have shopping available for your Dream Designs Doll Clothes, which are custom doll clothes available for the 18 inch doll and baby doll, plus doll accessories. The Blacksmith Shoppe on Main Street will be hosting a Santa’s workshop and Country Store during Christmas on the Prairie. Please come out and join us on Saturday, December 6th from 9am to 2pm for Lexington’s Annual Christmas on the Prairie.
