Save the Date: Shop at Wilson Farm on March 14
Starting in Mid-January, Wilson Farm will be kicking off its 14th annual Shop at Wilson Farm Days. These days are designated to give back to the local schools in our community. When a friend or family of the school shops at Wilson Farm on the designated day, 20% of their sale will be donated right back to the school! As an added bonus, the top earning school will end up receiving 25% instead of the allotted 20%! When shopping they must present either the flyer or e-mail in order for the 20% to be accepted. Flyers are on our website.

LHS Spring Sports season begins - Monday, March 18, 2019. This meeting is required for all LHS student-athletes interested in participating in an interscholastic spring sport at Lexington High School. All interested student-athletes should attend the pre-season meeting with a parent or guardian. At the large group session in the auditorium, the requirements for high school athletic participation (on-line forms, user fees, physicals, eligibility), will be discussed.
Immediately following the large group session, we will break down into sport specific meetings so that student-athletes and parents can meet with the coaching staff of their respective sports. In the sport specific meetings, our coaches will introduce their staff, talk about practice and game schedules for the season, expectations for tryouts, as well as other key elements of the season. This is a fantastic opportunity for student-athletes and parents to hear from our head coaches about their expectations for the upcoming season.
