v  AdvancEd, an accreditation evaluation group, will visit Lexington 4 schools in the 2017-18 school year. As a part of their process, we have posted the link to complete a short survey created by and for AdvancEd. Please take the time to respond to the link below so that we, at SHFA, can better meet the needs of our students and parents. Thank you!

v  Midlands Education and Business Alliance (MEBA) will be at SHFA Thursday, May 11 (6:30-8:00) to discuss careers and your student’s success after high school.

v  SHFA will host a Promotion and Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 30 at 1:00. All parents/grandparents are invited to attend. Our students have worked diligently throughout the school year, and we believe it is important to acknowledge students earning 6-7 credits and having established the foundation for success.

v  Our goal is for your student to leave SHFA with 7 credits. If your child has more than 10 parent notes and/or unexcused absences in a class, he/she will not receive credit regardless of the earned grade. Beginning immediately, students may come to Early Bird (7:30-8:00) in the cafeteria. You may access your student’s attendance records via Power School.

v  Beginning the week of May 22, students will have to take several End of Course Exams. Lexington Four’s grading policy does not apply to these exams; therefore, the student’s actual score will be recorded in the gradebook and no retakes will be available.  It is imperative that students are present, punctual, and committed to doing their best on these three days:  

  English (Multiple Choice) – May 23

 English (Writing) – May 24

 Algebra I – May 25

v  As 9th graders, students will have to take final exams. Their exam schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, May 30- First Period Exam

Wednesday, June 1 - 2nd Period Exam and 3rd Period Exam

Thursday, June 2 - 4th Period Exam and 5th Period Exam

Friday, June 3 - 6th Period Exam and 7th Period Exam 

Congratulations to Angel Skinner for being named 

SHFA 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year!
