Lyndale Community School

The best academic programs honor the contributions and abilities of each individual child. At Lyndale School, our teachers and administrative team recognize this fact and strive to bring individualized attention to every student’s learning experience.

The Pleasant Pathway starts this Friday, September 21
Tuesday, September 18, 2018 2:00 PM

We are excited to announce that again this year all children on the regular education buses will be joining the Lyndale Walking Bus route on Fridays along the Pleasant Pathway. The Pleasant Pathway is an opportunity for Lyndale students to wake up their brains by walking to school!

Starting this Friday, September 21, all regular education buses will drop students off at 38th and Pleasant, where they will be met by Lyndale staff. From there, students and staff will walk the four blocks together into school. The Pleasant Pathway will run Fridays until Thanksgiving Break and will resume in the spring.

Parents and children who do not take the school bus are welcome and encouraged to walk with us each week. We meet on 38th St. about 8:20am. If you drive, please park away from 38th St. and Pleasant Avenue, so you do not block the school buses.

All Lyndale students on regular education buses participate in the Pleasant Pathway. If you have questions, would like to volunteer, or do NOT want your child to participate in the Pleasant Pathway, please contact Assistant Principal Hunter, 612-668-4017,

Want to get to know other families at Lyndale? Do you have questions about what's happening at the school, and in the district? Have ideas big or small to make Lyndale better? We'd love to see you at the Lyndale PTO!

In the past few years, Lyndale parents have: coordinated the school's mural; started a Read-a-Thon; planted dozens of new trees around the school; and organized to save busing for Lyndale families. These all grew from parent ideas into amazing projects to improve the school. Join us to learn more about what the Lyndale PTO is working on for this year, and how you can get involved.

On the agenda:

  •  Social time -- we'll spend a little time getting to know each other
  •  Fall Carnival (Oct. 4) planning and other upcoming events
  •  Committee updates (Communication, Fundraising, Landscaping)
  •  Discussion of the  DRAFT MPS Comprehensive Design Project and how Lyndale parents can be involved. The school district is using this draft plan to inform structural changes that could be implemented over the next three years, starting with the 2019-2020 school year. There will public meetings about the plan around the district in September.

Submit an Application for Education Benefits
Wednesday, September 05, 2018 1:20 PM

We're very excited that Lyndale will continue to be a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school this year! CEP schools provide school breakfasts and lunches to ALL students at NO CHARGE while they are enrolled in a CEP school during the 2018-19 school year.

We'd like to remind all Lyndale families to submit an Application for Education Benefits (formerly known as the Free and Reduced Lunch form). All families in the district -- even those with students enrolled at CEP schools -- are asked to complete this form, regardless of income or eligibility. The information gathered has an impact on our school budget.

Please complete forms by December 1 to be included in school budget calculations for next school year. You can complete the form online through your SchoolCafe account: Paper applications will also be sent in the mail. You can find more information here: Minneapolis Public Schools Application for Educational Benefits.

Please contact the school if you have any questions. Thanks!
