Lufkin ISD showcases artwork in museum’s dyslexia showcase
October is Dyslexia Awareness Month and to celebrate, the Lufkin Independent School District is presenting its Dyslexia Showcase at the Museum of East Texas.
What is the “Dyslexia Showcase”?
Dyslexic students in the Lufkin District will have artwork on display at the Museum of East Texas this Sunday (10/2) from 2-4 p.m. You will see sculptures, drawings and paintings by students of all ages. Following the showcase, the items will be auctioned off online with proceeds benefiting the Alys Ray Dyslexia Achievement Scholarship.
Over 100 items representing many amazing students who are talented in different ways are on display at the Museum of East Texas, and these same exhibits are also auctioned off with bids starting at $1, with $1 increments. Of course, you are encouraged to bid with your heart as money from the Alys Ray Dyslexia Achievement Scholarship Fund (501c3) will be used for senior graduates.
All art auction contributions (winning bids and monetary donations) are tax deductible.
What is dyslexia?
The Lufkin Independent School District Dyslexia/Literacy Team is comprised of literacy interventionists and dyslexia therapists who support K-12 students on their literacy journey. Research over the past few years has proven that dyslexia is not at all a reflection of a person’s intelligence level or ability. However, this condition presents challenges in learning and in daily activities.

There are many dyslexia programs in East Texas school districts. These programs and their staff have done an excellent job of helping students overcome these challenges and instilling confidence in these young people.
