Lyndonville’s Academic Decathlon team is preparing for the local competition at the end of January. The main focus now is going over practice tests and creating review for each of the seven categories. These categories include art, music, math, economics, science, literature, and history all based around this year’s theme of World War II.
Former Medina graduate Amanda Misiti, came to speak to the Lyndonville 7th graders. The 7th graders just finished reading the novel “A Long Walk to Water” which takes place in Sudan, Africa, near where Misiti spent time in the Peace Corps. She helped bring a sense of understanding to students of how life really is for the citizens of Africa. Students made connections through the novel they read, by asking Amanda questions on her experiences. one topic discussed was the health and living conditions to which Misiti worked closely within a health clinic where she helped malnourished children and birthing babies. Lyndonville was grateful of her taking the time to speak to the children.
As January 2017 has arrived, the seniors are rounding the corner to the last six months as LCS students. This time of year is where they buy their cap and gowns to practice walking across the stage because all good things must come to an end. The time when they finish their last two seasons of sports. They will all head on to college and come back for the breaks to catch up and talk about old times. Though these students will always be Tigers no matter where the future takes them. They have had quite the journey over the past thirteen years, losing and gaining friends, making amazing memories, sports, and of course the last year where they all decide what paths they will take. High school teaches you some wonderful things along with the people who are on this trip with you. They wouldn’t have wanted any other class to do this with. This is an amazing group of people and we know everyones future is gonna be bright. Lets make this last six months here unforgettable as we did the first four months. ” Class of 2017, the 90’s saved the best for last” – Unknown
