Mrs. Wynter's Message
Greetings Lyons Family,
This school year has been a very unique experience for all of us and we appreciate all of your positivity & support throughout it all. Our staff has done a tremendous job with Phase 2 of School Reopening as we continue our commitment to excellence. At the core of our excellence is our commitment to social-emotional learning (SEL), which is why we have a variety of SEL initiatives embedded into our school culture and classrooms. Our team works diligently to reimagine the middle school experience for our children and provide holistic development to prepare them for the 21st century. As Aristotle said, "Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all". Our vision of cultivating a positive community of life-long learning and self-discovery will continue to be actualized as we navigate through the 2020-21 School Year!
”Our greatest ability as humans is not to change the world, but to change ourselves.” ~ Ghandi
Let’s continue to be the best version of ourselves. Remember, you are loved and we wish you well…

6th Grade Assistant Principal: Ms. Aveni
Hello Lions! I am elated to be the new 6th-grade Assistant Principal at Lyons Creek Middle School. I have had the opportunity to serve students, families, and communities in Broward County for eighteen years and am looking forward to joining the Lyons Creek family.
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I received a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Hampton University located in Hampton, Virginia and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Florida Atlantic University.
During my time in Broward County Schools, I have served as a Business teacher, Reading teacher, SAC Chair, Team Leader, Department Chair, Literacy Coach, and of course, Assistant Principal. I have used each position to coach and build avenues for student growth as well as to build capacity and empower teachers and families.
I believe that all children are gifted with talent. Each individual child has something to offer society and it is our responsibility to locate that gift and nurture it. A “growth mindset” asserts that learning and intelligence can grow with time and experience. I look forward to working together to help our children flourish and ensure that they propel into a bright future.
7th Grade Assistant Principal: Mr. Gurreonero
Hello Lyons Creek Families,
As your 7th Grade Assistant Principal this school year you can expect instructional and operational excellence in the planning and delivery of this new learning environment to your most prized possession…our students! As a father to both a first year college student (Go Owls!) and an incoming 6th grade “Lyon” there are no limits that will prevent me from assisting both you and your child as we move through this school year. I know understand the life of both a middle school student and a middle school parent and I encourage you to allow me to assist both you and your child throughout this new virtual reality.
As a former literacy teacher and a current literacy supervisor, I will work with our teachers and community to grow and develop our students to foster a love for reading, listening, writing and speaking!
I encourage you as parents to allow for us to assist you with any needs this school year. Reach out to us and allow us to hear the voice of both you and your students so that we can continue the Lyons Creek mission to cultivate a positive community of life long learning and self discovery.
Let’s do it together!
Mr. J. Erick Gurreonero
