Leestown's Rafael Cordoves Honored
Cordoves taught at Leestown for 10 years before becoming associate principal and then head principal. He proudly remembers Leestown being among the first Fayette schools to add a computer lab and incorporating a seventh period for practical arts and hobby lessons with guest instructors such as a cosmetologist, a guitarist, and a photographer. “I always said if we did something the kids and the teachers look forward to, that would be a good thing,” he said.
After his retirement 20 years ago, Cordoves remained a familiar figure in the hallways at Leestown and nearby Meadowthorpe – helping everywhere from the school office to the library to the lunchroom.

A total of 46 teams competed in the Kentucky regional. The final standings included:
11th place: Hexacity - Leestown;13th place the Amara Cities of Aelius and Lunarc - Leestown;16th place Sterling City - Leestown; 20th place City of Tomorrow - Hayes; 37th place New-Topia- Leestown
The Leestown groups were guided by teacher Melissa Graham, and the Hayes students by teacher Ashlee VanHoose.
“I was thrilled to have them and was amazed and very proud of how well they did. I’m really looking forward to seeing them grow in the program and become competitive for that top spot in the future,” said Joe Percefull of Oldham County Schools, the regional coordinator for Future City in Kentucky. “I hope that more Lexington schools will give the competition a shot. They will really enjoy what it does for their kids!”

2016 District 7 KMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival for Strings
Congratulations to members of the Leestown Orchestra for participating in the 2016 KMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival for Strings. The event was held at LTMS on Saturday, November 19th. During the past seven weeks, students have practiced at home and after school for this event. The students performed solos, duets, and quartets for a judge. Each judge evaluated their various elements of musicianship and performance technique. Playing in front of a judge is a character building moment for many students. Sixty-four (64) orchestra students from Leestown Middle School performed on Saturday. This was highest number of participants from any school (high school or middle school) in District 7. All of our students received Proficient and Distinguished ratings. Please congratulate our students on their musical accomplishments. We are so happy for you! Way to go, Chargers!
