**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

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.

Techno Pirates continue march to FTC Championships

The Lytle Junior High Techno Pirates competed in a double meet in Somerset Sunday. The team took 3rd place in the first meet and 7th place in the last meet of the day. Several technical issues plagued the team throughout both meets, but penalties prove to be the undoing of the Pirates and their alliance members. The Techno Pirates will compete again in Somerset this Saturday. The points from their four meets will be totaled to determine if they qualify to compete in the FTC robotics championship in San Antonio.

LJHS Techno Pirates have strong showing in opening meet

Our Junior High Robotics Team competed in their first league competition this past Sunday. Competing against 21 high school teams, some from much larger school districts, the Techno Pirates lead the pack for the first three rounds until a communication error in our control system began shutting our robot down. By the end of the day's matches, we had a dead robot. With the points we racked up earlier in the day, however, we still finished in the top half of the pack. We will have three more league matches in January to try and score enough points to advance to regionals.

Smart Lab 2 launches "manned" rocket into LJHS atmosphere

Students have been designing and building model rockets in SmartLab 2 and today they joined an elite club of manned spaceflight programs – or at least bugged spaceflight. We launched Bob the Beetle about 300 feet into the air. He survived and was released unharmed into the junior high practice field.

Here’s the video:
