Lyndale Read-a-thon Congratulations and Thank You!
Friday, February 24, 2017 2:10 PM

Congratulations to Lyndale students for reading a whopping 76,150 minutes during Read-a-thon week! All those minutes added up to 3711 Eagle feathers, far surpassing the school-wide goal of 2500 feathers and earning students the chance to see Principal James and Assistant Principal Stauduhar in the Egg SPLAT stunt after STEM Night on February 16!

Lyndale students raised $7,125 to improve High-Five through 5th Grade classroom libraries during the Read-a-thon! Thank you, Lyndale families and friends, for your very generous support of Lyndale students and Lyndale School.

Congratulations, Lyndale students, for reaching the school-wide reading goal! Lyndale students earned more than 2500 feathers during Read-a-thon week. Way to go! Ms. James and Mr. Stauduhar will be performing a silly stunt on STEM Night. The votes have been counted, and that stunt will be...The Egg Smash! 

Feathers are still coming in, so the final total will be announced at STEM Night along with the Top Classrooms in each grade. Top Readers in each grade will be notified tomorrow. Students: If you have not turned in your blue Minute Tracker sheet, it must be in the school office by 9am tomorrow to be considered for Top Reader. Don't forget to turn in donations, too!  

Please come to the Read-a-thon Finale celebration after STEM Night on February 16 in the Multi-Purpose Room, from 7:00-7:30pm. You won't want to miss it!
