School awarded silver, gold
Lehigh Acres Middle School will be recognized at the Nov. 7 Lee County School Board meeting as a "Silver and Gold School" for the 2011-12 school year. The Silver Award reflects a total of student volunteer hours, and the Golden Award reflects adult and parent participation of volunteer hours given to the school.
Good news from LAMS is the significant increase in parent participation at the school SAC-PTO meetings. The meetings are held once a month in the school's Media Center and parents and community members can attend. For information, call 369-6108.
