PreK-3 Where good things happen!
Welcome to Lyons Elementary School, located south of Mt. Hope between Cedar Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Our school is a Pre-Kindergarten through third grade building located in a quiet residential area and backs up to a city park. We have a big, beautiful playground with a square blacktop area for games, a jungle gym playground set and lots of grassy area for games or just sitting and talking with friends.
We believe every child can learn if placed in the right environment, and yes, we believe Lyons is exactly the right environment for children to learn both academically and socially! We have high expectations for each and every student enrolled in our school. The instructional staff includes 11 pre-k through third grade classroom teachers, a literacy teacher, an instructional assistant, a resource room teacher, a student assistance provider, and a speech therapist. In addition we have district art, music, and physical education teachers visit our building on a regular basis.
We also have several extracurricular activities for students including Choir for Kindergarten through third grade students, drama club for second and third graders, recorders and boom whackers for third graders, and the Feeling Good Mileage Club.
