Lynnville-Sully Hawks,

We are writing to inform you the USDA is ending the sponsoring of the Summer Food Program at the end of this school year. In order for a school to qualify to continue the Summer Food Program, one of the following criteria must apply:

  1. Census data must meet eligibility requirements.

  2. The free and reduced percentage of the school building must meet 50% free/reduced meal eligibility.

Lynnville-Sully Schools does not meet either of these eligibility requirements. As a result, we will not run a Summer Food Program this summer.

Additionally, we have received preliminary communication that schools will not be able to provide free meals to all students during the 2022-2023 school year. As information is received, we will communicate so everyone can be prepared for the upcoming school year!

If you have any questions, please reach out to the school. Thank you for your grace and flexibility as we navigate these changes.

L-S K-5 students far exceeded the 2022 Walk-a-thon goal of raising $14,000 by bringing in $20,910. Since the event was held on May 6th, donations have continued to roll in totaling over $21,000. Because the goal was met, twelve students had their names drawn to help turn Mrs. Bowlin into a human ice cream sundae. The students were equipped with a variety of toppings and enjoyed their part in the transformation. To wrap up the event, students enjoyed walking/running around the track and participating in fun obstacles during their laps. Thank you to the Lynnville-Sully Community Education Foundation for leading such a memorable fundraising opportunity!


On May 5th, Hawk supporters filled the high school gym and were blessed with a wonderful musical performance by our 3rd through 6th grade students, under the direction of Mrs. Francesca Richter. The students have spent countless hours learning their lines, song lyrics, and dance moves. In addition, our sixth graders took on the responsibility of running the sound and lights along with designing props and costumes for the production. It was an impressive group effort with several students taking on leadership responsibilities. The future looks bright for the L-S Fine Arts Department!

D.A.R.E. Graduation

Our fifth grade students recently completed D.A.R.E. and celebrated with a graduation ceremony. For the past few months, Jasper County Sheriff's Department Deputies who are certified D.A.R.E instructors led the students through important conversations to help them make healthy and safe choices.

Some of the discussion topics included the D.A.R.E Decision Making Model, effective communication, resistance strategies, signs of stress, and responding to pressure. Congratulations to our fifth graders for completing this valuable program and for the Jasper County Sherriff's Department for their partnership and support of our students!

K-5 Hawk Best celebration

All year, the K-5 students and staff have been striving to show their Hawk BEST. Staff recognize those students who are meeting those expectations through positive feedback coupled with a blue ticket. Just recently, the students were able to fill the ENTIRE bucket with blue tickets. To celebrate the students took part in a glow party with music, drawings for individual and class prizes, and an extra long recess with a fun treat. In addition, each classroom teacher selected a student to recognize for consistently displaying their Hawk BEST all year. Way to go students for exceeding our goals and making such great choices!
