Lyon Rural Electric Cooperative is again sponsoring a Washington Youth Tour Contest. The Youth Tour will be June 14-20, 2019. REC will provide an all expense paid trip to Washington, DC for two high school juniors in Lyon REC's service area. Parents DO NOT need to be members of Lyon REC, they just need to reside in our service area.
This contest will consist of a written test based on information about the local REC and the history of Rural Electrics and other criteria contained in the two study manuals provided by Lyon REC.
If you are interested please stop in the guidance office and sign up by March 1, 2019!

January’s Senior of the Month epitomizes the attitude and work ethic that we expect of those who attend Central Lyon Schools. As a member of the National Honor Society, he has provided continued evidence of his leadership skills and aptitude. Being involved is not a foreign concept to this student as he has spent time participating in baseball, basketball, football, cross country, and track. In addition to athletics, he is a strong contributor to our FFA program as our local chapter President and a District officer, Mock Trial team, and choir. This intelligent young man has performed exceedingly well for Central Lyon and we look for him to continue to make a positive impact once graduated.
The staff is very proud to announce that this month’s senior student of the month is Kade G.
Our athletes have been working hard in strength and conditioning class again this year. We recently tested out in our core lifts, pro agility, broad jump, vertical and box jumps. Our numbers continue to rise, and the athletes are focused on making big improvements this winter. As the winter sports season begins, it is crucial for all of our athletes to continue to lift hard on a weekly basis right through their season. Strength training can keep them fresh and lessen chances for injuries through a long winter season. Keep up the hard work!

Central Lyon students have been hard at work demonstrating positive behavior choices. Students have the opportunity to earn ROAR cards daily by Respecting All, Offering Help, Accepting Responsibility, and Reaching Expectations. When a student earns a ROAR card, the card is put into a classroom container. Classroom teachers draw a name out of the that container weekly to earn a reward or privilege within the classroom. On Friday afternoons, the ROAR cards are put together in a large community tub displayed in the office hallway. Mr. Harman then draws 6 cards out to highlight students who were showing Roaring good behaviors. These students are recognized and earn a certificate.
