What's Happening at Lyseth

Students in Mrs. LeConte's class were thrilled to hear back from many individuals and businesses to whom they wrote to spread the word about Unity Day.  They even had some special guests come into the class and speak to them, including Superintendent Xavier Botana and Mayor Ethan Strimling.  Thanks for supporting Unity Day!
