  • 6-24-2021 Watch the video! 2021 Graduate Visits Lytle ISD to Thank His Second Grade Teacher!

    In April 2021, Graduating Senior Jordan Walker wrote an email to Lytle Primary Principal Jammie Fewell asking permission to see his second-grade teacher again. Jordan Walker knew Mrs. Naomi Schauer from his elementary school days. This year, Jordan graduated from Samuel Clemens High School and was prepared to move on to Howard Payne University, where he would be on the dive team. But before he launched into an exciting future, he was determined to find his second-grade teacher and tell her in person that she changed his life.

  • 6-23-2021 A closer look at Lytle's Career and Technical Education...What happens in Ag???

    In education, we all can get caught up in our own little corner of the school, busy and focused on our subjects or daily jobs. Here's a chance to venture into the world of Ag (and FFA) to see what learning looks and feels like in the shop, in the barn, and out in our back pasture. (Did you know we have a pasture and small herd of cattle?) Take some time to watch this video and learn something new and cool about our district and one of our flourishing CTE programs.

  • 6-9-2021 Lytle Chamber President says Food Trucks for School Bucks Event is a Success!

    On a beautiful evening this past April 17, the Lytle High School parking lot lit up with energy and excitement...plus the bright lights of food trucks and aromas of delicious fresh food cooking. The Lytle Chamber of Commerce organized the event working with Loretta Zavala, Lytle ISD Community Liaison. Many volunteers and students worked to ensure the night was a great experience for around 1,250 people in attendance. There were 12 food trucks cooking up a variety of eats and sweets, and several of them sold out of their products quickly, including Chef Johnny Stewart! Chamber President Mark Lovelace says the Lytle Chamber plans on hosting this event again, possibly in Fall 2021, with the goal of making it bigger and better.

  • 6-7-2021 There are 2 ways to watch 2021 Lytle Graduation!

    This year, once again, our Skull Studios student club offered our community a chance to be a part of the 2021 Lytle Graduation ceremony, LIVE as it was happening. Because the ceremony had to be moved to limited seating in our auditorium, this service is proving to be valuable to our graduates, our families, and our greater community. With students and staff running cameras, we are able to deliver a very professional, front row view of our graduates reaching this important milestone, and there are already over 1,500 views of this program: 2021 Lytle High School Graduation.

    Shelley Armentrout is the type of teacher who loves to explore innovative instructional practices such as blended learning, flexible seating, project-based learning, and enhanced technology integration.
