I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported our 2020 Book Fair. Our fair looked different this year, but it was very successful! With 40% of the profits from your generous purchases, we were able to donate 222 books to students who were affected by the derecho that devasted Cedar Rapids, IA, in August! All other profits from the book fair will go back into the library to purchase books and other library purchases, including those for our annual February Reading Month.

Open campus typically begins in December, or earlier at the discretion of the principal. This year, open campus for eligible seniors began Monday, October 26, 2020, during study hall, designated college course time, and lunch. FLEX open-campus would only be available to students who have study hall/college coursework eighth hour. Seniors can check their eligibility with Mrs. Lupkes or Principal Engleman.
Open Campus Requirements:
Students who earn OPEN CAMPUS and then violate the guidelines or school policy may lose OPEN CAMPUS privileges for the remainder of the school year and be assigned to study hall. Eligibility can be earned every four weeks, at midterm and quarter-end.
Mrs. Langholdt volunteered to be the individual speech coach because it was open due to Miss Sndyer's leaving. She didn't want the students to miss out the great things that individual speech offers. She also has always loved coaching the musical theater for the individual students, and she felt that she could take on all of the categories. "It is a lot of fun finding songs that encourage students to step out of their comfort zone to be different character," says Mrs. Langholdt.
She doesn't remember how many years she has been coaching musical theater for the individual students. She said "It's been a LONG TIME!" She is very excited to take on all of the categories; there are a lot of categories that she is not familiar with, so it will be fun to learn about them. The individual speech categories are musical theater, prose, storytelling, poetry, literary program, public address, expository address, radio news announcing, after dinner speaking, original oratory, and acting. She is very excited to try all of them this year. The last thing she said was, "individual speech is a lot of fun" and she hopes that lots of students will try it out.
Central Lyon, along with other school districts across the state, is learning about the new mask guidance relating to quarantining that was announced by Governor Reynolds and Dr. Caitlin Pedati at this morning's press conference.
The following graphic is new from the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) explaining the changes.
As more information becomes available, we will continue to update students, families, and our community.
