    Candemonium 2014
    Candemonium & Project Thanksgiving = 1 MASSIVE Food Drive!

    Bring in canned food items and non-perishable food items now - November 21st to support East Lee families in need and the CUOC (Christian United Outreach Center) food bank. 

    Collected items will first be used to create Thanksgiving meal boxes for East Lee families. Remaining items will be donated to the CUOC food bank.

    To spice things up a little after Thanksgiving boxes have been packed, East Lee staff and students will use the remaining collected items to create a can structure in the front office. Our structure will be judged by CUOC against SanLee's can structure on Monday, November 24th. CUOC will also be weighing the items we donate to see which middle school collected the most items. 
    Bring in your items today to help support 2 great causes AND to have fun competing against SanLee and West Lee.

  • 2014 Red Ribbon Week at East Lee Middle School  
    That's a wrap! Red Ribbon Week at East Lee has come to an end! Thanks to all who participated in the dress-up days and RRW activities!
    Congratulations to the following homerooms who had the most participation in the dress-up days and in turn, received a popcorn party bucket!
    6th grade - Chandler's Homeroom
    7th grade - Mowrey's Homeroom
    8th grade - Davis' Homeroom
    A HUGE thank you goes out to the JLine Dance Crew for traveling to East Lee on Friday, October 31st! Performances by the JLine Dance Crew out of New York served as the perfect wrap-up to Red Ribbon Week at East Lee. The dancers wowed staff and students with their top-notch choreography and shared an awesome message focused on making good choices and anti-bullying.
    For more pictures from Red Ribbon Week and JLine's performances, check out the counselors' photo gallery by via the Guidance tab above.
    Don't forget that RRW is about much more than the dress-up days and fun! Even though RRW is over, staff at East Lee will continue to build relationships with students by encouraging, listening and promoting drug-free lives!

  • Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving Painting  
    Ms. Whitley's class is working on “Project Thanksgiving” as their community service project at East Lee. This project will provide local needy families with a Thanksgiving dinner. ELMS will hold a canned food drive from November 10th through November 21st. The items needed for the project include: cans of corn, green beans, sweet potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Other items needed are boxes of mashed potatoes, stuffing, macaroni and cheese, bread, and turkey. We are also accepting cash donations to purchase the turkeys. This is just one of the on-going projects East Lee staff and students are involved in. This year's goal is to provide at least 15 families a Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Ms. Saad Bright Ideas Grant
    Congratulations to Ms. Saad for receiving a Bright Ideas Grant from CEMC. The grant will go towards the purchase of a Pug Mill for the middle school levels in Lee County. Ms. Saad wants to recycle the clay after after classes each year and this piece of equipment makes it possible. She will share this with the other teachers in Lee County so they can get together and all do it so the waste of clay will stop. This will free up more money for other art supplies each year. Due to the budget situation each year if she can recycle, it allows clay to be possible each year even if we have a tight budget. Ms. Saad still needs to raise over $1000.00 to make it possible.

  • Free Rice Farley  
    Ms. Farley's Strive group's October goal was 60,000 grains of rice. They met and exceeded their goal with an ending total of 78,000 grains of rice! Students have decided and agreed to keep the goal for November at 60,000 grains of rice, which means as a collective total they need 120,000 grains. As of 11/04, their overall total is 80,350 grains!
