Over the past month, the 6th-8th grade students at Lester Prep have gone on their annual College Tours. 6th visited in town at University of Memphis, 7th went to University of Central Arkansas, and 8th Traveled to Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse, and University of Alabama. All students returned inspired by these opportunities for their future! Thanks to all who sponsored students for the 8th grade trip.
All CEG schools will be closed Friday, January 19th. Though main roads are clear many neighborhood streets, less traveled roads, and parking lots are still covered in ice and snow. We are looking forward to the warm up next week, so we can return to our normal routines. All schools will be open Monday, January 22nd. Thanks!

Thanks to some help from a lot of friends of Cornerstone Prep who donated time and money, students at our Lester campus are now enjoying this amazing Book Room! In this little library student have a chance to select from many of the exciting, new children’s books out today. They can lounge and read there or check books out to enjoy at home. Our Reading Specialist, Robin Waters is on hand to help them find the just right book. One student said, “Its like our own Barnes and Noble! We love it!” BIG THANKS to a few individuals who helped make this happen Lucy Forrester, Jonie Laney, Kathy Hammond and Robin Waters.
