  • 3-2-2020 Lytle Students Win Runner Up Social Impact Award at Texas' UIL Young Filmmakers Showcase.

    On February 25, a group of 11 Lytle student filmmakers traveled to Austin to see our Camp CAMP documentary on the big screen at the historic Paramount Theatre. Out of 743 films submitted to UIL this year, only 92 are chosen to show on the big screen and considered for the top two places in the state. We are proud that Lytle High School has been to the STATE level 4 times in the past 7 years of the contest. The only school that beats us in appearances at state is Argyle High School. There are hundreds of schools that have never had a chance to walk the red carpet in Austin and our kids have bragging rights when it comes to this incredible honor - 4 returns!

  • 2-26-2020 Commercials to Promote Advanced Media Class and Skull Studios Student Club.

    Hello High School and Junior High friends and counselors at all levels, This year was a low enrollment year for my Advanced Media classes, and so I enlisted the help of a few of my students to create some promotional/informational videos to hopefully generate interest for next year. (I've linked the videos of my students talking about their experiences and career-focused learning.) At the secondary levels, if you could help by sharing one or more of these videos with students in your classes, or PRIDE/FOCUS time, or during planned parent meetings, that would be great. At the primary, elementary, and junior high levels, please take a look at these videos with the idea in mind that I can send these students (Lexi, Jace, and Louis) to your campuses to talk about their projects, career choices and skills that they've honed while in Skull Studios and Advanced Media classes. I can even arrange to have them bring our S.T.E.A.M.y drone for a demonstration. These videos are also available on lytleisd.org, on the Public Relations page.

Please do us the honor of watching the results of their hard work in this 7-minute film, Camp CAMP Volunteers.

  • 2-6-2020 Perfectly Paired Pirate Pen Pals

    Lytle Varsity Football players took on a special Pen Pal project with third grade students at Lytle Elementary. At Lytle ISD teachers at all levels find creative ways to inspire students to read and write more, and that includes head football coach, R.T. McConathy. Not only did hundreds of written letters go back and forth between campuses, but football players made weekly visits to the elementary to greet students as they arrived at school. Players would make the most of those visits by spending time with their third grade Pen Pals, playing learning games, and encouraging each other. The football players enjoyed being leaders and mentors, and the third graders got to know their Friday Night Lights heroes a little better. Watch the video to see and hear for yourself how all the students involved got TONS of writing practice in, and LOVED every minute of it.

  • 12/12/2019 Elementary Christmas Program

    Yesterday, December 11th, the Elementary had its Christmas program. What an amazing feat! Unlike our voluntary Veterans Day program, our entire student body participates in the Christmas show. With only 3 weeks of rehearsals since our last program, our students did a fantastic job of memorizing lyrics, melodies and character parts! These kids never cease to amaze me with what they are able to accomplish!
