• As a Title I school, Lexington Four Early Childhood Center is hard at work boosting student achievement. This is a shared responsibility between home and school. Below you will find a Home-School Compact. We encourage parents/guardians to read and discuss it with their children. We would also like your input on the compact. Does it cover everything you think it should? Please send any comments and/or suggestions to Leslie Hightower at the contact information listed below. You may also send comments and/or suggestions to your child’s principal.
