We can't wait for you to see all the neat things happening around Lyon. Be sure to check out the upcoming events. We'd hate for you to miss out on the fun!
Morning Car Lane FYI

Just a reminder our car lane is open each morning from 8:10-8:25. This ensures students arrive in their classroom ready to learn at 8:30. If you plan for your child to eat breakfast, then please drop them off no later than 8:15.
We can't wait to see all our Lyon grandparents Tuesday, September 4 from 5:00-6:30 pm. Be sure to stop by our cafeteria, PTO will be providing root beer floats to all our visitors (while supplies last).
What I Need (WIN) TIME
We are excited for the new opportunity for ALL Lyon students! Each Monday-Thursday from 8:35-9:00 am students will receive direct instruction on the skills they need to grow as a learner. All staff will support learners, including counselors, aides, and administrators!
Supporting The Leader in Me Initiative
We are often asked how parents can support Lyon's leadership initiative. Each time we are asked we give the same answer “Use the 7 Habits language at home.” As the school year unfolds, the children are learning the language and meaning of the 7 Habits. By hearing the same language at home and at school, you send the children a strong message of what you believe is important and that we are all on the same team—the team that wants to help succeed. When parents and schools support one another, the sky's the limit!

The students have been using their WIN time to focus on reviewing all the habits. We will then begin focusing on one habit per month. We will identify leaders of the month, learn additional traits of the habit, partner with our buddy classrooms to complete habit activities, and hear ways others use this habit in their work or life.

Below is a summary of each of the habits:

Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood ( Listen Before You Talk)
Habit 6: Synergize (Together Is Better)
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)
Reminders of Special Events Occurring Monthly at Lyon
Each Wednesday of the month there is a special activity planned from 8:35-9:00 am.

1st Wednesday : Students with at least 98% attendance will celebrate with a special activity from 8:35-9:00.

2nd Wednesday : Each classroom will partner up with their buddy class to learn more about the habit of the month.

3rd Wednesday : We have reserved this Wednesday for student action teams. More to come later this semester.
