Not All Superheroes Wear Capes
Thanks for helping out with duct tape and of course for taking all those pictures of me helpless on the wall. I loved seeing all the smiles. And....I actually stayed on the wall! Whew, pressure off!
Leader In Me
I will be out of the office on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I am excited to have the opportunity to attend a Leader In Me symposium. Mrs. Shields and Mrs. Howard will be sharing some new knowledge with you at our upcoming faculty meeting.
Please make sure you have read pages 85-92 for Tuesdays faculty meeting.
Leader In Me
- Leadership Team met last night to began a quick analysis of the staff survey results. Attached is a copy for you to view and I have asked your leadership team representative to discuss opportunities for improvement (OFIs) and possible solutions or action steps.
- Playground Rules is another matter I would like to align. There is a lack of inconsistency among grade levels which makes student conversations in the office quite confusing. Leadership team will be asking your thoughts on the established rules we rolled out at our Boot Camp in August.
- Currently we have 2 openings at Lyon we are attempting to fill. Interviews were conducted on Wednesday/Thursday and we have some wonderful candidates to choose from. Stay tuned for more information!

Great Things at Lyon
Third grade has knocked it out of the park with their MOY writing, increasing their proficiency rate by more that 30%!
First grade is the grade to beat with attendance, they have had the highest attendance the last 2 months in a row!
Title teachers have been a huge asset to our writing scores. I have heard many great things from classroom teachers on schoolwide title and the support with writing.
Instructional aides are awesome too! I am excited to hear how researching is going with Fann in the library as an extra support and thanks to Hicks and those K teachers, we only have 8 Kindergarten kiddos who are reading at a basic level!
