The Principal's Corner

To Our Lyndale Families,

I hope that you were able to stay warm in what proved to be a very cold January. As a school, we have begun our transition into the Second Semester and there are some very exciting things taking place at Lyndale Community School!

If you haven't already seen it, there is a new rug located in the entryway in front of the Main Office. The acquisition and design behind the rug itself was a collaborative effort between donors, staff, and families. It is a great way to welcome current and prospective families into our school.

We are in the midst of a comprehensive recruitment effort aimed at securing 100 Kindergarten Students for the upcoming 2018-2019 School Year. This endeavor, entitled #Lyndale100Strong Campaign, would not be possible without the incredible support of our staff and families! We have engaged 170 prospective families in our attendance zone to encourage them to visit our school and learn more about Lyndale. Through door knocking, phone calls, and our Lyndale Eagle Extravaganza, we are taking steps to market our school to prospective families, as well as strengthening the bond we share as members of the Lyndale family.

The deadline to enroll new students is Saturday, February 17. Prospective families can enroll using our school's website or in person at school. If you or someone you know would like to enroll their student at Lyndale, we are happy to help!

It's that time of year again when we prepare for our upcoming budget allocation. This is a very busy time so please be on the lookout for future communication concerning the financial landscape of Lyndale Community School.

On Saturday, January 27, our Lyndale Leaders participated in the annual Lego Robotics tournament at Sullivan School. As always, our students represented themselves and our school in spectacular fashion, and came home with numerous awards (8 total) related to their understanding of science, engineering, and robotics. Thank you to Ms. Becker, Mr. Menz, and Ms. Del for continually supporting our students as they engage in authentic learning opporutnities through the GEMS/GISE program, we appreciate it!
