  • When a Community Rallies for its Schools

    Posted by Deb Stenberg on 1/24/2019

    Dear Lyle Students, Staff, Families and Community Members,

    Dr. Ann Varkados In the past 5 months, I’ve met many of the people who make up the Lyle, Dallesport and surrounding communities.  I’ve been gratified and humbled by the spirit of volunteerism and service on behalf of those in the community who may not have as much. 

    For our students, this is a lifeline of caring. When community members step up to volunteer money for holiday food baskets or to sponsor scholarships (like the Lyle Lions), to fund a needed facility (like George Cooper), to be a mentor or classroom volunteer, to provide clothing and personal items for our students, the community is enriched, too. In my experience, the giver and do-er is repaid many times over.  

    Likewise, when a community supports a school levy, the students and staff aren’t the only ones to benefit.  Strong, vibrant schools are the heart of strong, vibrant communities.

    Our building serves as a gathering and meeting place for organizations like the Sewing Ladies and AA, and our sports and other activities are a source of entertainment and community pride.

    Positive actions tend to come full circle.  While many of our students benefit from the Lions Holiday Food Boxes, many others donate items for the boxes and help sort and distribute them.  In similar fashion, students who graduate with strong skills and knowledge become contributors to the greater economy and community.

    The levy on the ballot February 12 is smaller than this community has supported in the past. That’s because the state has limited local school levies to $1.50 per $1,000 of property valuation, as part of their new school funding structure. But it is as essential as ever to maintain important programs and staff this small district couldn't otherwise afford.

    You can read more information about the levy on our webpage.

    I would like to ask your continued support in keeping Lyle a vibrant place for students and the community. When your ballot arrives in the mail, mark and return it on or before February 12.
