On Friday, October 5, Lyndonville Middle-High School Tiger Way Students participated in class meetings. This year, our class meetings are focused on building community, promoting collaborative skills, and enhancing students’ sense of belonging. On this occasion, students engaged in the “Spider Web” activity. The objective of this activity is to strengthen the connections between each member of the community. In this activity, students created a visual example of their interconnectedness. Students formed circles, and the first student wrapped the end of a yarn ball around their finger then shared a unique personal fact that may not have been known to their peers. That student then tossed the yarn to a classmate who repeated the process. As each student held their part of the yarn, a “spider web” was created. Our many unique webs helped to show us that as Tigers, we are all one despite our differences!
The Ride 4 Life program came to Lyndonville Central Schools last Thursday for students in grades 5-12th. This program features stunt cyclists who perform tricks while providing important information. The lead spokesman, tells his story about his troubled past and finding a positive way out.
On Friday a group of students attended the Jostens yearbook planning trip at the Buffalo Zoo. There students were inspired by guest speakers such as Caleb Campbell and the Craft brothers about the importance of yearbooks and designing them. From here students them worked one on one to create next years cover. Student enjoyed the day and we look forward to seeing the book come to life next year.
On Wednesday, seniors in the AVID program demonstrated the philosophical chairs strategy for our faculty. Students discussed two articles and their opinions related to a hot button topic in a way that was respectful and knowledgeable with inner and outer circles. Each circle was designated to either discuss or be active listeners. This strategy allows others to listen to both sides without getting defensive and understand where others are coming from with their opinions.
Faculty gave the students praise for being courageous enough to demonstrate this in front of the whole middle and high school staff. They thought the students did a wonderful job and look forward to possibly using this strategy within their own disciplines and classrooms.
Mr. Wolford’s senior YEA class members gave their business presentations on Tuesday to a panel of professionals.
