LMS Families, please take a moment to review the information below about PAPER, a free online tutoring/writing/academic support that is available to your student 24/7.
Subject: Important Student Update: Free 24/7 Tutoring
Dear W. Mack Lyon Middle School Families,
We have some incredible news to share! We are thrilled to announce that CCSD has partnered with Paper to provide ALL students at LMS with free, 1-on-1 tutoring and writing support.
You can explore this incredible resource with your students right now! Have them go to app.paper.co, search for their school, and login to start a tutoring session.
When students login and start a session, they are instantly connected with subject-matter experts that guide your students through problems step-by-step, without giving away the answers. This way, students can walk away from sessions feeling confident that they understand the material and have the tools to succeed on their future assignments and exams.
Here are a few ways Paper can support you and your students this school year:
Unlimited 24/7/365 tutoring support — sessions can run for as long as students need!
Revisions for any typed writing assignments!
Tutoring and writing support in 4 different languages — English, Spanish, French and Mandarin.
Interested in speaking to a member of the Paper team? You can reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NJHS STAFF DEVELOPMENT DAY LUNCHEON
Lyon Middle School held a Professional Development Day on November 8. The National Junior Honor Society, and advisor Vanessa Fullman, provided lunch to the staff that day. It was great to see our students in action providing service to our staff. And even better, they came in on a day they did not have school to do so. Each student was asked to approach 2 businesses and let them know about our luncheon and if they would like to support the teachers of LYON Middle school.
The businesses that donated were Cosy Rosy Quilting, Southern Nevada Racing Association, and Green Valley Grocers. Thank you to our generous community for their continued support.
