LPS Visual Art Exhibit 2022

The Lexington Public Schools Visual Art Department is pleased to announce the return of the annual student art exhibit. Artwork  from across the system will be on display at the Central Office  gymnasium, 146 Maple Street, Lexington, MA. The event begins with an opening night reception on April 7th at 6:30 until 8:00 pm. All are invited to attend. The art exhibit is open for further viewing Monday through Friday from 8 am until 4 pm. The show will be up until April 27th 2022.

While it would be fantastic to include every LPS student to exhibit their art, time and space make it impossible. We want to applaud the work that is on view, as well as celebrate and congratulate all of our students’ hard work and best efforts. There are many considerations above and beyond skill that go into creating an exhibit of this magnitude. Please know all are worthy of representation.. We thank you for your kind consideration and support of the LPS Visual Art Department. We look forward to your enjoyment viewing the  students’ art work.

Maths Team News

The Bowman Math Teams meet weekly before school. The 3rd graders had their second competition and the 4th and 5th graders had their fourth competitions in February. Students were given 6 problems and had 30 minutes to solve them independently. Each correct answer was worth 1 point and the top 6 scores became the team’s score.

3rd grade: There are now 172 teams participating in this year’s CML Grade 3 Math. Bowman’s team scored 27/36 on the second test for a total across two tests of 59/72, which puts them in the top 15% in the country and the #2 team in New England. Congratulations to Catherine M., Elise Y., and Emma Y. who each scored 5/6 on their tests.

4th grade: There are 88 teams participating in this year’s CML Grade 4 Math at the Pythagorean level. Bowman’s team scored 36/36 on the fourth test for a total across four tests of 144/144, which means they are tied among the top 8 teams in the country and they are the only perfect team in New England. Congratulations to Chris C., Dhruv I., Gus B-G., Olivia I., Sanav B., Shlok M., Simon B-G., and Sriman D. who each had a perfect score on their test.

5th grade: There are now 98 teams participating in this year’s CML Grade 5 Math at the Pythagorean level. Bowman’s team scored 30/36 on the third test for a total across three tests of 132/144, which put them in the top 15% in the country and #1 in New England. Congratulations to Akshay R. and Joey W. who each had a perfect score on their test.

Excellent job to all three teams! Every member of the team worked hard and can take pride in this accomplishment. The final competition for each grade will take place in March.
