2015-16 has been an amazing year in the Lyle School District! 260 brilliant minds in grades Pre-K to 12 worked hard this year to grow towards grade level standards and proficiency and beyond! Approximately 35 district staff members did everything in their power to ensure that in Lyle #ALLmeansALL.
We as a district proved that if we align systems and structures and approach each and every day with the belief that our kids in Lyle deserve the very best that kids deserve anywhere, our kids CAN do it!
Thanks to Ms. Marvel and Ms. Kilian, we launched a new pre-kindergarten program that will ensure that even more of our kindergartners start school ready for success!
Congratulations to 4th grade teacher, Lori Smith and secondary mathematics teacher, John Bister, who both are still in the running for Washington State Teacher of the Year! These two educators are great examples of the kind of amazing teachers that we have in Lyle.
So appreciative of our K-5 staff who embraced a new instructional strategy and operated as a blended teaching team, one certificated and one classified staff member, to ensure that we have low class sizes to adult ratios and that each of our kids get exactly what they need...whether that is enrichment or remediation.
Our K-6 teachers implemented a new ELA and Math curriculum this year ensuring that our kids are exposed to a rigorous curriculum aligned to the Washington State Learning Standards.
Congratulations to our 19 high school graduates from the class of 2016 and each of the adults who worked tirelessly to support them for at least 13 years. Your persistence and grit will serve you well in the future.
Our district is undergoing significant transition this summer by unifying our entire Pre K to 12 student body under a single roof at the Lyle Campus. Though this transition presents challenges, it also opens opportunities to continue to meet the needs of each of our kids in new and innovative ways.
Lyle kids deserve an excellent educational experience in a school where every classroom is filled with an effective teacher and classified staff. Our kids deserve a trajectory that sets them up for high school graduation and life after....college, careers, and a successful life as a contributing citizen!
In Lyle- #ALLmeansALL
