Lyon: Lifelong Leaders and Learners
McCulloch Visits Lyon!
Lyon was excited to host McCulloch students as they visited Lyon on March 27th. Lyon staff and students got to show off what Lyon is all about: family, fun, and learning! Students visiting were able to attend a Leadership Assembly, meet Student Lighthouse Team Members, and learn all about Leadership Teams at Lyon. It was a blast! We can't wait for these students to join the Lyon family next school year!

Calling All Incoming

If you have a child entering kindergarten in August 2019 we invite you to attend our orientation on May 7th from 6:00-7:30. Parents and students will get the opportunity to meet all kindergarten teachers, learn about the kindergarten curriculum, select their "best fit" student leadership team, and even ride a school bus! Don't miss this fun event!
