High-5 Day

The last official school day for middle and high school students is always a fun one. Monday, students started their day with locker clean outs, an awards ceremony, a senior class procession through the halls, followed by fun and games outside. Having this day allows student to reflect on this past year and interact with staff members in a fun way (even dunking some in the dunk tank). It also allows for a much needed break before regents testing begins. Please enjoy some photos from the events!

DWI Simulation & Prevention Assembly

Today Lyndonville student’s grades 10th-12th, learned about the dangers of drinking and driving. The day started with students witnessing volunteer fire fighters, EMT, law enforcement and senior class students taking on the role of a simulated car crash as a result of drinking and driving. Students were surprised at the length of time it can take to provide the help needed for those hurt. Seeing the firemen and EMT personnel working as hard as they could and still the amount of time the injured where in the car while the dismantled the vehicle. A few students said that the simulation was at times difficult to watch but they were thankful to all those who helped to put things in perspective.

Following the simulated crash student then met Justin A. Randall Jr. Randall was injured from drinking and driving while in college. He drove home after a party that he had been drinking at ultimately crashed his vehicle. Randall was the only one involved in the crash that left him unable to walk, use his left arm and speak. He now visits organizations with an interpreter to tell his story in hopes to educated others to not make the same mistake.

Students then heard from Orleans County Sheriffs about the importance of not being distracted with driving by cell phones, radios, Ipads, etc.

Seniors were then given a special t-shirt to show their support to not drink and drive or be a distracted driver. The t-shirt logo was created by a 9th grade Lyndonville student who was selected as the winning design among many applicants.

Vans Shoe Company Contest

Students at Lyndonville had the exciting opportunity to design 4 pairs of shoes for the Vans Shoe Company. This was through a nation wide contest Vans holds every year. They sent the school 4 blank pairs of sneakers to which student had to design each pair based on set themes. This years themes were; Music, Art, Local Flare and Action Sports. Although our shoes came out amazing and the students worked very hard, unfortunately our shoes were not selected. However, it was a fun experience and we have amazing pieces of art to put on display.

Yearbook Planning Field Trip

Believe it or not but the planning for next year’s yearbook has already started! Photography and Yearbook Club students had the opportunity to attend the Jostens’ Spring Yearbook conference held at the Buffalo Zoo. While at the conference students heard from experts in the fields of journalism, layout design and photography.

Students also met one on one with an artist to sketch out next years cover design to coincide with the theme selected. It was amazing to sit down and give our ideas to the artist and watch them create a cover right in front of us. Students have been using Photoshop throughout the year and were very impressed by the knowledge of the software that the artist had and to see him work with it to design a cover from scratch.

Below you will see a sneak peak of next years cover design sketch showcasing the theme of “Unearthed.” The 2018 book will focus on Lyndonville Central School comparing the past to present time. Students have a lot of great ideas that will surely make next year’s book uniquely special. Be sure to remember to order next year’s book but don’t forget there is still time to order the 2017 book as well!

Students also had time to practice their photography skills while exploring the zoo grounds. Overall the experience was wonderful and we were able to get a lot accomplished in a short amount of time.

The Day The Lights Went Out

On Wednesday March 8th, Western New York faced a major wind storm. It didn’t shy away from Lyndonville school either! Around 12:30 the power went out at the school leaving the staff and students in the dark and resulting in a wind day (instead of a snow day) the following day. We made the most of this memorable situation and documented the on-goings throughout the remaining periods of the day the lights went out.

Last week was spirit week. The days that everyone participated in were color day, twin day, dress to impress day, fashion disaster day, and finally orange and black day. Spirit week is a fun way for everyone to participate and express there school spirit. During the week we had assemblies where we played games and had a competition to see who had the best outfit for each of the five days. At the end of the week on Saturday each grade designs a float and we take them down the road in our mini parade and we are judged on the amount of people and the float that looks the best. At the homecoming dance we finally find out who won the spirit stick, the seniors! This past week was one of the best homecomings yet.
