Press Release, Lyndonville Central School
LYNDONVILLE – The Lyndonville Central School District invites all parents and community members for a presentation at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 30, by Greg Ahlquist.
Ahlquist is a Webster Central School District social studies teacher who was honored as the 2013 New York State Teacher of the Year. He will speak about the growth mindset and how it is important to encourage students to take risks and accept new challenges, learn from criticism, find lessons and inspiration in other people’s success, and persist in the face of setbacks.
Each and every year, Lyndonville Central School District aims to encourage students to achieve their best in academics and extracurricular activities. The district supports its students as they grow into young adults and begin to navigate their paths towards their futures. Throughout this school year, LCSD will increase its focus on nurturing the further growth of students.
Students have always been encouraged to set goals for themselves but this year, they are challenged to set the bar even higher. Whether it is taking an advanced placement course, trying a new instrument or acting on their athletic pursuits, students should set new, higher goals for themselves.
“Lyndonville Central School District aims to develop intelligent, well-rounded students by providing them a variety of opportunities to explore while getting their education,” said Superintendent Jason Smith. “Our students have a plethora of courses, activities and opportunities right here in our building that will challenge them and build their knowledge and experiences.”
“Our students may go on to a two-year college, a four-year college or even straight into careers, but it is important that we set high expectations of them while they are young students so they can grow and excel at whatever they do beyond graduation,” added Smith.
