Kids Eat Here!

Kids Eat Here, a local initiative to promote the federal Summer Food Service Program, aims to ensure that all students have enough to eat during summer break. Children age 18 and younger may eat at any site; it doesn't matter if they are from outside Lexington, out of state or out of the country. Program partners include Fayette County Public Schools, God’s Pantry Food Bank, Employment Solutions Inc./Fresh Approach, and the city of Lexington’s Division of Parks & Recreation.

The Summer Food Service Program, which helps fill the nutrition gap, provides meals to all without charge, and its service is the same regardless of the child’s race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. For questions, contact Michelle Coker, director of Child Nutrition in FCPS, at (859) 381-3846.

Maxwell's Lost IS Found!

Lost and Found tip - As the temperatures drop more and more coats and ending up in the Lost and Found bin. PTA looks through them to check for names so the items may be returned to their owners. I know our worlds are already busy, but taking a moment to mark your child's coat, lunchbox and other personal items could ensure they are not donated or gone forever! Thanks parents!

The Lost & Found bin is located at the back of the school under the PTA Bulletin board.  For those of you who are interested, Maxwell Elementary PTA donates the items not claimed by students to the Lexington Woman's Club.  The Lexington Woman's Club provides gently used clothing to more than 1,000 Fayette County school children annually.  For more information on claiming, collecting and donating items, contact

Collection dates:  May 22, 2015
