Lyle School District shares academic growth

 


Because of the hard work and generosity of the Lions Club 386, families received groceries for their holiday dinner. What a blessing we have in these devoted people who work all year long to insure the local residents are provided a special treat. This worthwhile organization not only provided this, but also works year round to provide hearing and vision aides to those in need. I know they would not feel comfortable taking all the credit and would share it with all of you who pitched in and generously donated toward their project. Maybe this is one organization that could be circled on your New Year’s resolution list for joining and doing your part. Our lifelong resident Dona Taylor received her heavenly wings this past week. She always had a warm smile and genuine compassion for everyone with her very caring personality. She will be missed by all who knew her. She and hubby Doug have been the corner stone for the High Prairie Community. Lyle School District Superintendent Andrew Kelly and two board members, Tria Bullard and Barbara Mills, were invited to share the district’s turnaround story of Lyle Schools’ students showing strong academic growth. The trio spoke on Saturday, Nov. 19 in Spokane, at the Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA) meeting, to school directors and superintendents at their largest conference of the year. They presented to a packed house during their session and were proud to share the growth that has occurred within

our district. Due to the weather conditions, the Lyle Schools Christmas Concert scheduled for Dec. 14 has been rescheduled to January 4. The community is invited to come celebrate and wrap up the season with our students and staff. This delightful Christmas concert features students in kindergarten through 12th grades performing favorites old and new, and takes place in the Lyle School gymnasium starting at 7 p.m. Donations of new or clean, gently-used clothing are also requested. Look for the donation boxes when you enter the school. You can even buy an ornament hand-created by our students for $1 each. My year is ending tragically with the death of my granddaughter and her husband when they interrupted a burglary of their home in Anchorage, Alaska, on Christmas Eve. They were both shot and killed by the intruders. God’s testing has not weakened my family’s belief in Him, but we search for what lessons we are to learn. Forgiveness is still one of the hardest.
