**SIMULATED ACCIDENT AT LHS CAMPUS 4/7** LHS hosting Shattered Dreams Program

Dear Parents:

As adults, we all understand the potential risks and consequences of drinking and driving and for underage drinking.  However, despite all the precautions we take as parents, some of our teens still experiment.  Alcohol related accidents are the #1 killer of teenagers today.  Even worse, according to one auto accident attorney, “Texas Teens Lead in DWI Deaths Nationwide.”

In an attempt to help educate our students, Lytle High School will be presenting the “Shattered Dreams” program on Thursday, April 7, 2016.  A mock car crash will be recreated with some students acting as victims.  Local emergency services will be involved, as well as local law enforcement.   The point of the presentation is to have students learn that, although some people get lucky, there can be life-changing consequences when people choose to drink and drive.

Please mark your calendars.   We are attempting to notify the community in advance so everyone will be aware of what is happening at the high school on Thursday, April 7 and will not worry that there has actually been an accident.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (830) 709-5100 or email me at joplings@lytleisd.com.

 

Sincerely,

Sandra Jopling

SHAC Coordinator

4 LJHS Students qualify for All-Region Band in Pearsall!

Good Morning!  Yesterday we took 15 students to Pearsall to audition for  the Junior High All-Region Band.   The students competed against 14 different schools and hundreds of students to earn a place in one of two bands.  Our students did very well, but we did have a few heartbreaking moments.  In the trumpet section four students missed the band by a few chairs.  24 trumpets were chosen for the band and Carlos Tomayo was 25, Jared Garrison was 26, John Martinez was 28, and Eddie Morfin was 30.  They competed against 74 trumpets.

The four students that made the band were:

Juanita Saldana 8th grade Flute, Concert Band

Ellissa Gallegos 8th grade Clarinet, Concert Band

Ariel Muraira 8th grade Clarinet, Concert Band

Mason Ringer 7th grade Alto Saxophone, Concert Band.  Mason was only beat by 8th graders.

These students will participate in the JH All-Region Concert and Clinic in Pleasanton on Feb. 20.  I’m very proud of all of our students, especially the 7th graders who tried out.  We are in a very tough region and all of our students did a great job.  Thanks Mr. Fender and Mr. Reyes for your help.

LJHS Techno Pirates advance to semi-finals on way to 5th place finish

The Lytle Techno Pirates and their robot fought hard all the way to the semi-finals Saturday, but fell just short of qualifying for the state championship, placing 5th out of 14 teams and garnering a 2nd Place judging award.

After three previous meets where Lytle was plagued by technical problems and penalties, the Techno Pirates were problem-free for the majority of Saturday’s qualifier in Somerset. After the final meet, Lytle had made it into the semi-finals with five other teams.

Lytle’s most exciting moment came in the second round during the semi-finals when they faced New Braunfels, the only team that was undefeated in all four Somerset meets. The two teams and their alliance partners fought hard during the two-minute match, utilizing all of their point-scoring mechanisms on their robots. At the end of the match, it was too close for the audience to call. After a few tense minutes of calculating by the referees, the scores were projected on the wall: Lytle 74, New Braunfels 73. It was a thrilling moment for the Techno Pirates team. Unfortunately, they lost in the third round to Reagan and Robert E. Lee high schools and did not advance to the championship. They did, however, come away with a 2nd place judging award for their work promoting robotics in the community and showing school spirit at the event.

Coaches Joe Corona and Jeffrey Salinas did a great job this year preparing the team for this competition and our principal Mr. Dykes went above and beyond supporting our team. We couldn’t have created this winning team without him. Thank you to all the teachers and parents who helped out this year.
