We Have Spirit! Yes, We Do!
School Employees Demonstrate their Support for TEAM Day

For just a $5 donation, employees of Lexington Public Schools dawned gear or team colors from all athletic levels, and a variety of different sports. Of course our favorite were those who wore our own school team, but at the end of the day everyone was a winner for being the “Biggest Fan” and supporting the kids in our local TeamMates Mentoring Program.

Across the TeamMates organization, more than 8,000 youth in the TeamMates Mentoring Program see their Biggest Fan once a week during the school year when they meet with their TeamMates mentor. Mentees receive support and encouragement as their mentor advocates and cheers them on through their school years providing hope and a positive vision for their future at the post-secondary level.  

TeamMates Mentoring Program of Lexington is so pleased with the support of the LPS Staff Members and their efforts to generate awareness for the need of mentors and financial support for our Chapter.

If you missed out on TEAM Day and would like to support the Lexington TeamMates Chapter, we invite you to remember us on Give BIG Lexington Day this Thursday, November 15th, and/or join us at our Annual Tailgate during the basketball games on Thursday, December 6th  starting at 5:30pm in the Lexington High School cafeteria.
