The Principal's Corner

Dear Lyndale Eagle Families,

Winter break is upon us and it's hard not to wonder where the time has gone. It seems like only yesterday that we were welcoming our Lyndale Leaders to the first day of the 2019-2020 School Year.

It is safe to say that the longest days of the season are yet to come. However, there are many bright spots to give us light during a time of year where sunshine and warmth are few and far between.

Our Third Grade Lyndale Leaders reminded us all of the power of peace with their annual peace Play performances made possible through our partnership with neighborhood Bridges (Children's Theatre Company) and The Breck School. Our Fifth Graders demonstrated their leadership and created the conditions for a fun and enjoyable week before break by identifying and advertising the different themes for each day during Spirit Week 2019. Students and families across the grade levels spent time together engaged in a wide variety of authentic and engaging learning experiences. It's apparent that Lyndale Community School continues to learn and grow together as a community.

There's no doubt that the latter half of the school year will move just as quickly as the former. Regardless of what may come, we remain committed to supporting our students, families and staff in their continuous improvement by getting better each and every day. Sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. Learning isn't always pretty and often times it's the exact opposite. That said, we're fortunate to have one another as partners for wherever the journey may take us.

Go Eagles!
