Greetings, Lynn Road Families!  I’m hopeful that everyone is enjoying the weekend.  We have less than one month remaining in this school year.  Let’s end this school year out strong!

 

Below are a few updates for the upcoming week.  We look forward to a great week of learning and growing!

 

Polling Site (Tuesday, 5/17)

Our campus is a polling site for the primary election that will take place on Tuesday.  Voting will occur in the gym.  As such, please anticipate delays in morning and afternoon carpool on Tuesday.

 

Super Kids Day

Super Kids Day is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7th (Rain Day is Thursday, June 9th).  This day will be full of fun, field activities for our K-5 students.  Since students will be outside for a couple hours to participate in these activities, please make sure that you send your child with a water bottle.  Also, please make sure that they are prepared to participate in the events by wearing sneakers.  For more information, see THIS LETTER from Mr. B.

Kindergarten Orientation

If you have a rising kindergartener, or know someone that does, please plan to attend an in-person event on Thursday, May 26th from 5:30p - 6:30p.  This will be an opportunity to hear from our staff and receive information that will help to ease the transition…If you have a rising kindergarten student and have not yet registered them, please do so as soon as possible.  You may also use THIS WEB PAGE if you would like additional information.

All 3rd through 5th grade students take End of Grade (EOG) Tests in reading and math.  Students in 5th grade will also take a science EOG Test.  Below is the schedule for this year.  It is important that your student is present to take the test so that they do not have to make it up later.  All tests will be given in-person; virtual students will need to come to the building on their assigned days.
