Lyon News-1.4.16

Not All Superheroes Wear Capes

Weekly Updates

Happy 2016! Jeanette and I hope you have had a relaxing and rejuvenating break! As I had time to sit and reflect, I had a smile across my face! Can you believe how far we have all come?!? We started the year, me a stranger to Lyon, with lots of unknowns and a lack of where Lyon was headed. Now that you have allowed me to join in, I can see Lyon has a clear path and a plan! Jeanette and I can't wait to unwrap this alongside Lyon's leadership team and all of you throughout this 2nd semester! Keep loving on your students and know that what you do each day makes a difference to someone!
