LES Garden - Harvest!

The Lyons Elementary School Garden has really grown by leaps and bounds this year.  With seedlings germinated under lights and planted by 1st grade students, the garden is producing tomatos, cucumbers, squash, basil, dill and peppers of all colors.  Eco Club and 1st grade students have been harvesting for a couple weeks now, supplying our local LEAF Food Bank with amazing fresh produce.  The Garden will play an important role in our new Science and Leadership Program to be held on Late Start Days.

2017 Eclipse Safety and Parent Information

Eclipse Safety Checklist

It’s not the eclipse that is dangerous to observe, it’s the sun! The sun’s visible (and invisible) rays can cause serious damage to the sensitive tissues of the eyes, often without being immediately aware of it. Normally, our common sense protects us from looking directly at the sun for more than a second.
