May term is a collection of high school classes that are offered during the last four weeks of the school year. High school students have a chance to explore new areas and give back to the community through service learning. Middle School students get to experience new exploratory classes and special field trips.
Sign-up for summer band lessons has begun!
This year Mr. Langholdt and Mrs. Deutsch will hold 4 weeks of summer band lessons in the month of June. Each student will have 1 lesson each of the 4 weeks. Lessons will begin June 5th and run through June 28th. Lessons will only be given on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in the high school band room. You may request a specific time or day of the week, but sign-up will be a "first-come-first-serve," so make sure to turn those slips in ASAP! When requesting a day or time for your lesson, keep in mind your other summer schedules like bible school, swim lessons, athletic camps, etc.
The cost for 4 lessons is $32 and is due when you sign-up; please make checks payable to Central Lyon.
We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE all new band students to sign up for lessons. This insures that they will learn the basics on their instrument before the new school year begins.
We also encourage all 5th graders going into 6th Grade Band and all 6th graders going 7-8 Band to sign up. Of course Mrs. Deutsch would love to see ALL middle school band students sign up for lessons so they can begin learning their new marching piece for the Fall!
You can find the sign-up slips attached below - otherwise you may e-mail Mrs. Deutsch or Mr. Langholdt for a copy of the sign-up. Also, you can have your student pick one up in the band room.
If you could ask one of our country's Founding Fathers anything you wanted, what would you ask them? The Central Lyon 5th graders had that opportunity on Wednesday, April 25th. Thomas Jefferson (who also goes by the name David Best) visited our classroom to teach our students more about Thomas Jefferson's life and give us a unique, one of a kind experience. Students listened as he told them about his life, how he wrote Declaration of Independence, and about his 2 terms as president. The 5th graders asked some great questions and even convinced Mr. Jefferson to take a selfie with our class.
Gable Sieperda finished in first place in two races at the 2018 Drake Relays and earned the Robert Kramme Award-given to the top boys high school competitor. According to the Sioux City Journal, Sieperda "became the first prep runner to win the 3,200 and 1,600 double at the Drake Relays since Johnny Fuller of Glenwood completed the feat in 2010. His winning time of 4:15.48 was 14 seconds faster than his best entering Drake while his 9:11.17 winning time in the 3,200 puts him 19th on the state’s all-time list and earned him the Journal’s Siouxland Athlete of the Week honors."
Mountain Fever will be on the Tom Gaspar stage in the Forster Auditorium Tuesday, May 22, at 7:30PM under the direction of Sherwin and Ann Langholdt.
The 2nd grade students have been learning about the importance of conservation and the role that trees and healthy soils play in it. In Art class, with Mrs. Hoppe, they have been working on creating their own watershed pictures to show this.
During May term the AP Biology class is preparing for the test that will be taken on the May 14. In preparation, we will be doing experiments and practice tests. The test consists of a multiple choice section and a free response question section. Doing experiments gives the students hands on and that helps learn the scientific process. Practicing free response questions is also very important because they are graded in a specific way. All this practicing will hopefully get rid of some of the anxiety that comes with taking such a long test.
Through hands-on programs and advancements in technology, Central Lyon students are learning in unique ways. KDLT’s Simon Floss interviewed Science Instructor Rochelle Ebel, Industrial Technology Instructor Grant Engle, along with students Kolten Bus and Colton VanBeek.

KDLT News Today from Sioux Falls kicked off 'School Zone,' a new segment that features cutting-edge programs in area schools. Central Lyon has the distinction of the first school visited. Students and teachers were asked to be at school by 6:00AM Thursday so the news station could stream live video.
Chess club is a new high school extra-curricular activity for the 2017-2018 school year. It was started by some students who were looking for a way to improve their chess playing skills. We meet once or twice a week during the last 14 minutes of the day (DEAR time), often on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There are all types of skill level chess players who have joined, from those that didn't know how to play to seasoned veterans.
Chess is fun to play and it involves strategy. The students have really enjoyed playing each other and many have improved their chess playing skills. Anyone in high school is welcome to join.
