Congratulations to XAVIER GIBSON and to CHLOE KRAEGER who are the most recent SOUTH LEWIS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS OF THE MONTH. Both students are members of the freshmen class and fill their time with sports and extra-curricular activities. Xavier is a football player and a member of the track & field teams. Xavier also had a rather memorable, comical performance in this year’s high school musical. Thanks for those chuckles! Chloe plays soccer and softball and was a key player on the varsity volleyball team this past winter. She is also a member of GAA and knows the value of hard work and the importance of being a part of a team. We appreciate these young people and their willingness to share their time and talents with the South Lewis community. Keep up the good work!
South Lewis had a few big wins at the Tri-county Art Show this past weekend! Schools in the Tri-County area, come together to celebrate their student's hard work by entering 15 pieces per area,(elementary K-5, middle school 6-8, and high school 9-12). Everyone entered did a great job! Carin was the winner of 1st place Photography Portfolio and Mari won a 1st place ribbon and a Judges Choice award for 2D 6-8th grade. To win a large award in this show is very challenging, it shows all the hard work and dedication our students have. If you find time, stop by the state office building next week to see all of the fantastic work from South Lewis and our neighboring districts. Congratulations everyone!
Emma Reid and Mason Youngs, the South Lewis Senior Class Leaders, were guests of honor at the Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, April 25. At the reception, Emma was joined by her proud parents, Andrew and Kristine Reid. Mason, who is the son of James and Cheryl Youngs, happily attended the event with several members of his family. What a great way to celebrate the educational achievements of our students and to acknowledge the district's priority of scholastic success. (And, also, it seems like a perfect occasion for cake....) Congratulations, Emma and Mason. Your hard work and dedication have not gone unnoticed.
Kylie Schell, director of Encompass Recreation, a local non-profit that aims to provide sports and recreational opportunities to youth with higher support needs, provided us with a "beta" version of their "Playground Core Communication Board". By using the communication board, students that struggle to communicate, no matter the reason, have an opportunity to share their needs and feelings, and those students that effectively communicate verbally can also use the board to "talk" with others. It's a win-win for everyone! South Lewis, along with two other schools will provide feedback on this new tool to Encompass Recreation to compile and create a single board for all local schools to have. Thank you for letting us be part of this project!
Let's hear it for these South Lewis High School Students of the Month for April. HOORAY for Katelyn Gigliotti and Andrew Golden! As a 9th grade student, Katelyn Gigliotti has a whole lotta (or is it "whole lotti"?) kindness and caring. She stays involved with the Falcon community and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Andrew Golden, a 10th grade student, is the guy with a golden smile (and it's worth a whole lotta more). Andrew is hard-working and kind and cares deeply for his friends and South Lewis family. Well done, young people! We thank you for sharing your light!

Congratulations to Jaxtyn, Elementary School's Artist of the Month for March!
Nathalie is the High School Artist of the Month for March! Nathalie has been part of the art room for all of her spectacular high school career. She throws pottery on the wheel and has used almost every glaze we have with many dynamic combinations. She goes with her mood of the day and might be painting with acrylics, watercolors, or tempera. She also hand-builds creations with clay that is unique. Nathalie moves around the room sending love and good vibes to everyone. She is my mini-student teacher and a ray of sunshine.
Here it is: your moment of Zen. Thank you, HS PE instructors, Mr. Smykla and Mrs. Gino, for sharing Earth's beauty with our students. Each day our students snowshoe to the South Lewis back forty to breathe in the wonder of the world. They are calmer, wiser, and stronger for it. Om, Falcons!
