It's that time of the year when we reflect on our successes, challenges, and learning opportunities. Our Community Pep Rally is one of our first opportunities to give students industry standard cameras who may have never touched one previously. They are nervous, very green, and they make mistakes, but it always turns out to be great learning. This video is proof that there is value in just getting them out there to see what they can do! It's a 'throwback' from a content standpoint because it just got done a couple weeks ago. Our video editor, Sarah Ytuarte, has never edited a video before - this is her first time using Adobe Premiere Pro - but a great example of student learning in our Digital Design program. If you know the students listed in the credits, tell them you're proud of them for jumping in and trying new things!
To all the coffee lovers in the district - you HAVE to watch this video! For those of you who wake up human WITHOUT ground magical beans, watch the video because you'll love seeing yet ANOTHER good thing that Chef Stewart, Micah Berchelmann, Blanca Cantu, and their students have brought to Lytle High School and our district. You'll learn in the video that it's not just fancy coffee drinks -- hot teas, and hot cocoa are also served up by student baristas. Very soon, culinary pastry delights will appeal to the masses regardless of your drink preferences. Special thanks to Bri McDonald who designed the Jolly Roger Coffee Co. logo. This new business-in-a-school learning aligns with our plans to grow within the Collegiate Edu-Nation network.
Extracurricular isn't just extra fun. Often it means extra learning in the form of leadership skills, mentoring skills, positive culture or team building, and event organization skills. Please watch this video story created by Skull Studios students. It's a great example of powerful, widespread learning within our cheer program.
Our entire district family came together yesterday to send of our Girls and Boys Cross Country teams with beautiful Pirate Pride. Here's your chance to enjoy the entirety of the experience we created for our runners!
