During the month of January, the 7th and 8th grade PE students have spent time in the weight room during class. During this time, they have learned about proper form, the purpose of each machine and piece of equipment, and weight room etiquette. We spent the month working on learning the core lifts that our strength and conditioning program is based on. The students used our lighter training bars and plates to learn proper form without the risk of injury. We also spent considerable time learning a variety of lifts using dumbbells and the machines in our weight room. The students did an outstanding job throughout January, and they are excited about being full time participants in our weight room in the future.
Individual Cauliflower-Crust Pizzas
TRY THIS RECIPE!
This specific recipe saves a lot of work. In most cauliflower recipes boiling is needed, making the cauliflower so full of water that it is needed to be put into a rag and wrung out. Not having to boil the cauliflower makes the recipe different than most other cauliflower pizza crust recipes.
1 large head cauliflower (about 4 cups shredded)
2 large eggs
3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup pizza sauce
1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Using a box grater or a food processor, shred cauliflower into crumbles. Reserve 4 cups; store the remainder in the fridge or freezer for future pizzas.
Cook cauliflower in microwave in a large microwave-safe bowl for 8 minutes. Allow to cool 10 minutes
Add eggs, 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, oregano, basil and garlic powder and stir to combine.
Lightly grease 2 baking sheets (or pizza pans); divide mixture into 12 balls.
Place balls on sheets and pat each into a thin round circle about 4 inches wide.
Bake in oven 15 minutes until golden brown (the edges might be charred; this is okay).
Top each mini crust with pizza sauce, remaining Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses and toppings of your choice (sausage, pepperoni, more cheese, ect.).
Broil pizzas until cheese is melted and tomatoes are slightly roasted, about 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before serving.

Lyon Rural Electric Cooperative is again sponsoring a Washington Youth Tour Contest. The Youth Tour will be June 8-14, 2018. 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 2, 2018!

This season of large group speech began in September with speechies organizing groups and choosing material for contest. Speech coach Mrs. Hakeman has 21 students this year in three categories: ensemble acting, improv, and mime. Speech students are very committed to the program and practice both early mornings and after school. The goal of each group is to perform at a high level at district competition, so they can advance to state competition. The ultimate goal of every group is to perform at the All-State Festival. The 2018 district competition resulted in seven of eight groups advancing to the state contest, with two two of these groups receiving overall I's at state. All-State honors went to Zach Springer and Brady Wright for Ensemble acting Who Doth Inhabit the Primary Position.

“I have participated in Large Group Speech my entire high school career, and I couldn’t ask for a better experience. I love being able to be with my friends and acting comedic skits. There are so many different options to do, it can range from Mime to Improv to Musical Theater! It can be stressful trying to memorize lines and actions, but in the end it pays off. I have been able to go to State, and I am so glad I had such a fun experience!”
