  • 5-28-2021 Flute Quartet Excels at State Contest

    Our flute quartet that qualified for the State UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest received their results today, and they were awarded a 1st Division, which is a rare accomplishment at the State level! The quartet was composed of graduates Emelia Garcia and Emma Polomsky and Sophomores (soon to be Juniors) Cambri Davila and Natalie Williams. Thank you to MJ Robles for all the work she did with these girls, and for all the work they put in to end the year on a “high note” for the Pirate Band!

    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. Mr. Mark Fender, who sometimes answered to their "Papa Fender" nickname, was delighted by the surprise-showing of this video at the Band Banquet on April 30, 2021. It is now YouTube-published for the rest of our Pirate Family to enjoy as the 2020-2021 school year comes to a close and we wish Mark Fender well in his next adventure.

  • 5-14-2021 Senior Class Scholarships

    Since March 2021, Mrs. Parker, our college and readiness counselor, and I have worked to collect information on academic and extracurricular scholarships awarded to the Senior class. This group of students has worked diligently to get into universities, colleges, and vocational schools; however, acceptance into post-secondary schools is only part of the process. Scholarships are a major factor in student success, and these Seniors have amassed remarkable financial support from the schools they will attend in the summer and fall of this year.

  • 5-14-2021 National Honor Society

    The Lytle Chapter of the National Honor Society is proud to welcome 16 new members to the organization this 2020-2021 school year. It has been a hard-earned year with the pandemic limiting the usual volunteer opportunities; nevertheless, the previous members and newly inducted members have persevered and amassed a combined 2,000 service hours. Many of those hours came from service to the Natalia Food Bank which has run consistently, three times a month, since July 2020. Our students have volunteered their time, even during the holidays, to make sure they have the support they need. Volunteer hours have also come from acting as support staff for extracurricular activities such One Act, cross-country, and band. It has been an absolute privilege watching them grow in responsibility and work ethic as they have maneuvered this difficult year, and I know they will continue working diligently from here on out.

  • 5-10-2021 Sports Medicine Recap for 2020-2021 School Year & 2021-2022 Lytle Student Trainers

    It has been one crazy year, especially in the athletic department; however, our student trainers made sure that our athletes were taking care of and following COVID-19 mitigation rules at the same time. Trust me when I say, trying to balance all of that is pretty strenuous but our student trainers prevailed!

  • 5-7-2021 Lytle ISD Virtual Service Pin Ceremony

    Our district values our employees for their loyalty to our school community. We have many Pirate Family members who completed 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and even 30 years of service at the end of LAST YEAR, the 2019-2020 school year. Due to COVID protocols we were not able to honor this group during Convocation, as we normally would. To end a very special Staff/Teacher Appreciation week, we ask you to spend a few minutes today watching this Virtual Service Pin Ceremony Video. We are excited to recognize milestone years of service with a special pin. The rest of our Pirate Family can make this day even more special by sending an email or stopping by to see these folks to say, "Thank you for your service!"

  • 5-6-2021 National Nurses Day - Thank you!

    At the end of the 19th century, “The Lady with the Lamp”, or as she is more commonly known, Florence Nightingale, founded modern nursing. Thanks to her strict use of hand-washing and hygiene practices while caring for wounded soldiers in the Crimean War, Nightingale and her helpers reduced the death rate from 42% to 2%, ushering in nursing as we know it today. On May 6, we recognize the important role nurses play in our lives by celebrating National Nurses Day. In celebration of National Nurses Day, May 6th, thank you to all our District nurses for the incredible impact you have on keeping us healthy.

  • 5-4-2021 UIL Academic State Meet Results

    May 1st, Mason Davila headed to the State Meet for UIL Academics-Number Sense at Randolph High School. I’m not sure how Mason felt, as he’s always as cool as a cucumber. As for me, I think I was nervous enough for the both of us. It’s not that I felt he wouldn’t do well, I only wanted this title for him. If anyone is deserving of this, it is Mason. He is many great things, but the greatest by far is his persistence to excel and his humble personality. I have to add, he’s pretty funny too. This last test was different than most

  • 5-3-2021 Robo Pirates Wrap up the Season

    This past Saturday, May 1st, the Lytle High Schook Robo Pirates traveled to Lutheran High School in San Antonio to compete in the only in-person event of league play this year. The team had previously completed judging interviews online and there was nothing remaining except to get on the competition field playing a game that involved shooting rings into a tower of soccer-style goals. Our team was represented by Junior Isabella Lopez and Sophomores Anthony Jimenez and Alex Medina. Isabella, having no prior programming experience, went out of her comfort zone and took up the challenge of writing the code to control this year’s robot. Anthony and Alex were returning as builders but had to step into the role of heads of that department for the first time and utilized a new drivetrain style that allowed for movement in any direction without having to turn the robot. The design was streamlined and elegant, given a normal build season the robot would have proven a formidable competitor at any level of competition. The highlight of the day took place in the 3rd match that resulted in a win thanks to an autonomous program that Isabella wrote during the lunch break and a buzzer beater shot by Anthony to score the decisive points. The trio went 3-2 on the afternoon and should be proud of the effort put in.
