Public Relations

  • The Lytle ISD Public Relations Department was created to encourage, develop, and maintain positive two-way communications between Lytle ISD and our employees, parents, and local community. Through website, digital, phone, social media, and area news organizations, we work to make sure our parents and community are informed of district and campus announcements and activities.

Student Public Relations and Digital Media Opportunities

  • The Advanced Media class offered at the High School during 2nd and 3rd periods gives students experience creating multimedia products with real-world applications. Students learn from the District Public Relations team as well as professionals in the industry to be journalists, photographers, video producers, graphics designers, and social media publishers. Students will create media products that showcase Lytle ISD events and stories.

    Assignments and projects focus on increasing the communications and coverage of student, staff, academic, extracurricular, and community service activities across all Lytle campuses. Students receive elective credit for their contributions to media products and build their own digital portfolios that will open doors to future opportunities. 

    The Skull Studios Student Club is also availlable for students who are interested in building their digital and media skills. Skull Studios students are provided opportunities to meet, create, compete, and further explore careers in all media technology fields during lunch and before/after school.

    Are you interested in taking the Advanced Media Class, or want to join the Skull Studios Student Club? There's one simple online application - fill it out and let's get you started experiencing one or both great programs!

  • "I was walking into Goliad's gym for lunch and Coach Hicks from George West stopped me and asked if I wrote Lessons from the Rings. He told me in his research to check on Lytle Throwers he found the articles put on the website.  He really appreciated the write ups. Thanks to the 'Knowology Department' for putting this out there. It is way above my understanding of cyberspace."

Our Stories

  • 3-4-2022 2022 UIL Young Filmmakers Results

    This year, the Digital Media and Skull Studios students created two videos for the UIL Young Filmmakers competition. One, an animation about a girl and a fox in a magical forest and the other a documentary about Doug Baum, ‘The Camel Man.' To make it to the state level in this UIL academic contest, you must make it through two preliminary judging levels, then place in the top six at the third level (equivalent to Regionals) but that didn’t happen this year. Our students learned a lot and are ready to improve immensely for next year’s competition. Although these films' runtimes are not very long, many hours go into planning, filming, editing, and creating them. Please watch and enjoy our two entries below.

  • 3-3-2022 Please watch! Lytle High School Shakespeare Day 2022

    In December 2021, the Freshmen Honors English I and the Senior English IV classes worked to bring the first Shakespeare Day to fruition at Lytle High School. Royalty from many faraway kingdoms were announced as honored spectators and the vibrant court jester served as a master of ceremonies for all the day's events - sword fighting, poetry reading, skits, musical performances, and dancing. This live, interactive, dramatic reenactment event created an environment in which students had to use their problem-solving skills.

  • 12-7-2021 Watch the Video: Lytle Community Pep Rally 2021

    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!

  • 12-1-2021 Today's good mood sponsored by: Coffee!

    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.

  • 9-9-2021 Digital Design Students Create 911 Memorial for Lytle VFW 2021

    I'm so proud of our Digital Design/Skull Studios students who jumped on the opportunity to design this beautiful 911 memorial for our Lytle VFW. Thank you to Chris Clouser who reached out to our wonderful Ag instructor, Raul Flores to borrow the billboards built by Ag students and made out of recycled wooden pallets! Mr. Flores recommended Mr. Clouser get Skull Studios kids involved in creating a design to honor 3,000+ victims. You can see this memorial Friday at the High School, and then it will be moved to Lytle Main Street, near the VFW Gazebo. Spend some time today or in the coming days remembering the victims and honoring our heroes who stepped up in defense of our great nation.

    Throughout this year, a group of Lytle band/video students, Damian Ramos, Donald Glasen, Elias Moore, Rafael Pacheco, Bella Lopez, Greg Martinez and Emiliano Peralta plotted in secret to celebrate (lament) their beloved Band Director's retirement.
