Dear Friends of the Foundation,
You are invited to participate in the Sixteenth Annual Fund Raising Campaign of the Central Lyon School Foundation, Inc. The Foundation, established in 2001, is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the enhancement of quality education through educational opportunities, school facilities, technology, and service, on behalf of the Central Lyon Community School District.
Last year’s Fund Raising Campaign raised over $37,000. Just under $8,000 was expended for grants to teachers for special projects (Lion Grants), $2,500 was used for CLSF scholarships to graduating seniors, and another $10,000 was contributed to Central Lyon as part of the four-year commitment for the new technology in the distance learning center. The balance of the funds was set aside in the Foundation’s Permanent Endowment Fund.
Since the first Fund Raising Campaign in 2002, supporters of the Foundation have contributed over $511,000. Approximately $230,500 of these funds has been awarded as scholarships to graduating Central Lyon students or to the Central Lyon school district to assist with current needs, including the afore-mentioned CLSF Lion Grants.
Show your support for the Foundation by making a contribution in support of the Foundation! Below you will find the link to the CLSF Mailer and information on the ways to contribute. Alternatively, you can also donate to the Foundation online at the centrallyon.org online store (see Foundation at the top of the page or visit this link goo.gl/hKBQ8B)! Please consider a contribution in our efforts to enhance the quality of education and the opportunities available for Central Lyon current and future students. Your contribution is fully tax-deductible as a charitable donation.
Thank you for your support!

When you make a trip to Room 106 you'll notice things look a little different from a traditional classroom. This year we have moved to flexible seating!
What is flexible seating?
Flexible seating is just what it sounds like. It is seating, that is flexible. Think of walking into a Starbucks and finding a seat that you want. It is just like that! Students are able to pick a seat that they feel will work best for them.
Flexible seating does not mean that students will roam the room all day. They are still responsible for quality work. It does not take away structure. Flexible seating gives students te opportunity to be comfortable where they are sitting. In turn, they are open to learning and listening. Students are still expected to follow the rules of the classroom.
Mrs. Schar and I applied for a Lion Grant through the Central Lyon Foundation to purchase flexible seating materials for our classrooms. We were awarded the grant and purchased ball chairs, scoop rockers, Ikea stools, lap desks, disk seats, and wobble stools. I was also given extra funds from the Central Lyon PTC to purchase a standing table. With all of the new options I kept a few traditional desks and chairs.
The students are enjoying the freedom to pick where their spots. Stop by Room 106 and find a seat that works for you!

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure. Shrek brings all the beloved characters we know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.
"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.
Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities, including costumes, sets, puppets (there is a fire-breathing dragon after all) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.
Our own Central Lyon production will feature Justus Poppinga as Shrek, Brady Wright as Donkey, Bergin DeBruin as Fiona and Zach Springer as Lord Farquaad. This is sure to be a hilarious production that is fun for the whole family!

The student council organized Homecoming Olympics, with a wide variety of activities including a relay race with Mad Gab, hula hoop, hot wing eating, and more. Seniors dominated reverse charades and won the week-long participation contest. The senior class will be rewarded with a pizza party. Central Lyon Olympics are always a fun way to end homecoming week! Check out the photos in the photo gallery!
Central Lyon students are invited to join a campaign to help others in need. The goal is to raise funds that will directly benefit hurricane victims and schools affected by the recent hurricanes. Thanks to the student council and middle school tech students for organizing this!
There are three parts to the campaign:
