LES calendar updated to provide additional instructional time
The Lynnwood Elementary School building cabinet, working with the PTA, met this summer to revise the school's building events calendar in order to give teachers additional instructional time with their students during the school day. This extra time will enable teachers to provide more opportunities for project based learning, additional enrichment work and extra support for students who are struggling. Many of the changes reflect a combining of events as opposed to holding events over a variety of days. (For example, combining the Apple Fun Run with Share and Celebrate). Many changes have been made and as a result, the printed district calendar mailed home to parents in August no longer accurately reflects many Lynnwood events for the new school year. Please make sure to consult the new LES calendar for revised dates of annual school events. View the updated calendar (PDF)
