Thank you to the Lyons parents who participated in Parent-Teacher Conferences in November. We appreciate that you’re engaged in your child’s learning. Teachers discussed the iReady assessment results to help families better understand what growth your student can achieve this year. We're excited to see how much progress they make in their learning as the year goes on!
Here are a few items of interest as we head into the holidays. I hope you get to spend some quality time with your children and loved ones!
Our Kindergarten and 1st graders will perform their holiday concert on Wednesday, December 12th at 6:30. If you can arrive 5-10 minutes early, that would be ideal. Hope to see you there!
Wisconsin School Report Card
The Department of Public Instruction published school report cards in November. Lyons Center “Exceeds Expectations” which is good news and shows that our school is stronger than the average school in the state and we improved over last year. That's always the goal, to see growth.
It is hard to believe that we’ve already had a snow day! Families will learn about snow days through Skylert, on our Lyons Facebook page, and through local media stations. Even with colder winter weather, students will go outside for recess as much as possible. Students need their hats, mittens, boots, coat and snow pants for the snow. Please remember to label these items. There are a lot of black snow pants out there!
We hope you enjoy the break December 22-January 1 and have some time to slow down. We’ll be ready for a new year at Lyons on January 2. We wish you a cheerful holiday season and a happy new year!
Lyons Center will take part in the Milwaukee Bucks Attendance Matters program for the month of January. Any student with perfect attendance will be eligible to participate in the program. This is a great way to get out to see the new arena.
What is it: This program will enable students with perfect attendance during the month of January to receive a certificate from the Bucks with a complimentary ticket offer to a select game.
Bonus: Student-attendees will receive an opportunity to shoot a post-game free throw on the brand new Fiserv Forum court at select games.
