      Posted by Boxlight on Wed, Oct 19, 2022

      Hello, I am a Lyrik that lives in the Physical Education Department. Mr. Peters was up super early to take me to the school pool for swim practice.

Soon Ms. Rogers and I will be heading out to help direct cars while students and parents cross the street. We want to make sure everyone gets to school safely, and Ms. Rogers always takes me along so that instructions can be heard loudly and clearly. Morning arrival can get really hectic!
