Congratulations, Lyndale students, for surpassing the school-wide reading goal! Lyndale students earned 4,910 feathers during the Read-a-thon. As promised, Mr. Stauduhar and Ms. Hunter will perform a silly stunt at the Read-a-thon Finalé school assembly on Thursday. The votes have been counted, and that stunt will be...A Pie in the Face!

Bonus: Students also met the 1,000 feather weekend challenge! They turned in more than 1,400 feathers this morning, which means there will be an additional special surprise at the Read-a-thon Finalé assembly!

Top Readers in each grade will be notified tomorrow or Wednesday. Top Classrooms will be announced at the Finale assembly. To be considered for Top Reader, students must turn in their blue Minute Tracker sheet by 9am tomorrow (Feb 13).

Donations made online through February 15 will count towards the $10,000 Read-a-thon fundraising goal. Online giving is at - search for Lyndale Community School Foundation. Thank you

Lyndale Students Surpassed the Reading Goal!
Friday, February 09, 2018 3:10 PM
The Lyndale Read-a-thon feather total is now -- drum roll, please -- 3,476! Lyndale students already surpassed the 3,000 feather goal! So, here's a new challenge:  If students read enough over the weekend to earn 1,000 more feathers (final total on Monday needs to be 4,476 feathers - or more!), there will be a special surprise at the Read-a-thon finale assembly on February 15.

Reading continues through Sunday, so don't forget to log all those weekend reading minutes on the Minute Tracker. Students can continue to collect donations through the weekend, too. Donors can make payment directly to a student by cash or check OR with a credit/debit card or online at - search for Lyndale Community School Foundation. Thank you!
The Read-a-thon Minute Tracker, Reading Goal/Donation Form, and donations are due back to school on Monday, Feb. 12. The Minute Tracker form must be returned for a student to be considered for top reader and top classroom awards. Need forms? Forms and more information are available on the Lyndale Read-a-thon web page.
