Lee Elementary students love their new four-square courts and an additional basketball hoop thanks to generous donations by NTA Property Management, the Middleville Lions Club, Lee PTO and a TAEF grant. Students have two new four-square courts and are learning to play the game at recess. They also now have an additional basketball hoop with new cement court to go with the hoop that was relocated making room for the four-square court. Pictured are several students playing the game while Lee Principal Angie Jefferson watches with Lions Club members Jason Bushman (left) and Andrew Beck.
Through the extremely generous support of TK families and the community, a total of $74,329.39 was raised at the 10th annual PTO walk-a-thon event last week.
The TK PTO Walk-A-Thon will be held on Friday, September 21, 2018 at the TKHS Track/Stadium. This year's theme is "Groovy". Lee Elementary will be walking from 1:10-1:50 PM.
Colson Brummel didn't remember Lee Elementary School being so small. "I kind of feel like a giant," said the TKHS junior as he walked down the hall where he once attended second and third grades. But that was a few years ago and now Brummel and his friends are coming back to their elementary school as role models for younger students. Members of the TKHS football team are volunteering time to be with Lee students on the playground, interact with them, and just show them good sportsmanship and good leadership.
The Elementary PTO Walk-A-Thon event is coming Sept. 21! This one-day event allows the PTO to sponsor a walk-a-thon event where students, parents, siblings and community members walk the TK track. Students collect donations and pledges for the laps they walk with all funds used by the PTO to support the elementary schools. Watch this video for more information about this year's upcoming event. It's going to be GROOVY!!! Don't Wait - Sign up to make a donation today!
