6-4-18 Primary and Elementary Receive a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolsTM Award

Watch this video and you'll know why Lytle ISD Primary and Elementary schools received a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolsTM award for the 2017-18 school year. These Lytle campuses were 2 of only 3 in the Greater San Antonio area given this award by the Flippen Group. Congratulations to the staff and Principal Wendy Conover for this distinction.

Fourteen years ago, Lytle ISD began an initiative to transform campuses into emotionally safe and relationally connected places for students, staff, and parents to come alive with a love for learning.

After researching programs used by some of the nation’s most successful schools, Lytle ISD leaders chose to join hands with the Flippen Group to bring Capturing Kids’ HeartsⓇ to its campuses. Teachers and staff learned processes to increase students’ connectedness with both peers and adults. They learned how to create a classroom environment where students are excited to enter and learn every day.
