The Principal's Corner

Dear Lyndale Families -

I am pleased to say that we are off to a wonderful school year at Lyndale Community School! The past couple of weeks have been a flurry of activities and action. Some items of note include:

  • Teachers are providing students with high quality literacy instruction inside the classrooms using the new Benchmark Literacy curriculum.
  • Both students and teachers are exploring our new online math program, Dreambox Learning, to enhance their conceptual understanding of mathematics.
  • Lyndale Community School continues to support the health and wellbeing of our students through standards based physical education classes, 30 minutes of recess each day, as well as the Pleasant Pathway.
  • All students at Lyndale Community School have the opportunity to eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch every day at school for no cost. There is nothing families need to do in order for their students to participate, however, we are asking all families to complete the Educational Benefits applicaiton if you have not already dones so. We have copies of the application in the main office, and links availalbe via our school's website.

Finally, Lyndale Community School has been recognized by the Minnesota Elementary School Principal's Association as a 2017 School of Excellence! This is a wonderful way to acknowledge the many contributions of our school staff, our families, and the greater community. Please stay tuned for more information regarding a community celebration in the coming months!

As always, your continued support of our school is recognized and appreciated. We thank you so much for the many ways in which you continue to make Lyndale a great place to be!
