Pink Out Day
With the founding of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in 1993, the pink ribbon, which had previously been used to symbolize breast cancer, was chosen as the symbol for breast cancer awareness.
The color pink itself, at times, has been used to striking effect in raising breast cancer awareness. Many famous buildings and landmarks across the globe have been illuminated in pink light during this event; Sydney's Harbour Bridge, Japan's Tokyo Tower and Canada's Niagara Falls to name a few.
Due to the success of this awareness event, for many people, the color pink and breast cancer awareness ribbons are now associated with breast cancer awareness. Lee High School celebrated National Pink Out Day with students wearing pink and having a t-shirt contest with an original theme for Breast Cancer Awareness. This year's winner is Dylan Ball.
The Lee High Cross Country team will finish out the season next Wednesday, October 28, at Wise Central.
Constitution Week is the commemoration of America's most important document. It is celebrated annually during the week of September 17-23. The United States Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties, freedoms and inalienable rights. This celebration of the Constitution was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1955, DAR petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The DAR has also erected a structure that is built in tribute to the Constitution of the United States. DAR Constitution Hall, which is a performing arts center, opened in 1929.
The aims of the Constitution Week celebration are to:
- Emphasize citizens' responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution.
- Inform people that the Constitution is the basis for America's great heritage and the foundation for our way of life.
- Encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787.
Lee High School celebrated the signing of the Constitution by Principal Michelle Warner with Justin Woodard, Corey Stewart, Bailey Sprinkle, Cody Spears, Blake Taylor, Ms. Tammy Scott and Mrs. Angie Collingsworth.
See you at the Pole
This year’s See You at the Pole (SYATP) was Wednesday, September 23. The theme was “United” – “They all met together and were constantly UNITED in prayer.” Acts 1:14. T
SYATP is the annual global day of student prayer. All around the globe, in every time zone, millions of students will gather around their school’s flagpole for a time of prayer for the 25th Annual SYATP, a student-initiated, student-organized and student-led event. Before school, tens of thousands of students locally will join together at their school’s flagpole in prayer for their friends, families, school, city, state and nation.
SYATP is a movement that began in 1990. It originated with one youth group, meeting at night at several schools in the community during a weekend retreat. SYATP brings students to their school flagpoles to intercede for their leaders, schools and families, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and countries.
First Priority will once again coordinated our state’s efforts.

Indistar® is a web-based system implemented by a state education agency, district, or charter school organization for use with district and/or school improvement teams to inform, coach, sustain, track, and report improvement ac-tivities.
Similar to a global positioning system (GPS), Indistar® tells you where you are and helps you get to where you want to be — every child learning and every school improving. Indistar® is stocked with indicators of evidence-based practices at the district, school, and classroom levels to improve student learning. But Indistar® is also customizable, so that the client (SEA, LEA, or charter organization) can populate or enhance the system with its own indicators of effective practice. The system also accommodates rubrics for assessment of the indicators.
