The school year is quickly coming to a close and before you know it, the last day will be here. Each grade level has a designated day where teachers will hand out any remaining materials (report cards, school pictures, classwork, etc.) and any personal items not already given to students.

Hello 5th grade families! 
We are so excited that we will be able to celebrate our fabulous 5th graders promoting to Middle School! This has been a trying time for them (and you!) but you've made it and deserve some fun! We'd like to invite you to a:
Drive By Promotion Ceremony-Wednesday, June 10th, 3:00-5:00. 
Ms. Calicchio and Mrs. Johnson will be in the parking lot in the front of the school. Mrs. Schonig and Mr. Cronin will be in the front bus loop. Follow the signs and look for balloons by your teacher. 
As you drive by, remember these rules: 
1. Everyone must stay in your car at all times. 
2. If you can, please have your student sit in the front passenger seat to make it easier for your teacher to give you your certificate and other surprises! 
3. Please pull up as far as you can so that we are not blocking the streets from regular traffic. 
4. Your teacher will approach your car and you can take a quick picture with them after you receive your materials. 
5. Traditionally, our theme for the Promotion ceremony and party afterwards is a Hawaiian Luau, so feel free to dress in Hawaiian/Tropical clothes or you can also dress up if you'd like to! 
We look forward to seeing you all on the 10th! 
Ms. Rowan, Ms. Ajlouni, and our 5th Grade Teachers

We are excited to share a new website where all of our Distant Learning plans and resources will be available. The new Lynhaven Distance Learning Hub can be accessed by clicking on the link below. We suggest that you bookmark it as we will be updating it each week.

We know that this is a challenging time for all of us, and especially for our parents who are juggling their new job as teachers with their other responsibilites.  While we are providing as many resources as possible to support you, please know that there are expected assignments and enrichment assignments.  This is a new journey for all of us and we know it will never replace face to face classroom teaching and learning. Please be kind to yourself and us as we embark on this new journey together.

We want to show everyone that we can be  far apart, but our school spirit continues to shine strong! Next week, we have some fun ways to show our spirit virtually. We hope you participate.

Share your photos on Seesaw with your class and you can email me and Mrs. Ajlouni directly too. We can't wait to see how you show your school spirit! We will share our photos too. I will post some of your photos on the website next week! Check out the list below to plan your fun!

Hello Lynhaven Families!

In order to properly plan for the next school year, each year we send out a form to inquire if your child(ren) will be returning to Lynhaven in the fall. With our Shelter-In-Place, this form must be completed online. This is very important information and we appreciate you taking a minute or two to fill it out for all of your children. You will see there are multiple lines for you to list all children returning. The form below is in Spanish and English.  We appreciate your time! Thank you in advance.

Even though this year we weren't able to  have some of our favorite school events, particularly the end of the year events, we know that you'll want to commemorate this school year! Our PTA would like you to know that our school yearbooks can be ordered, online only due to the shelter in place, through our PTA STORE!  Please click on the link below and Log in (or create a Log in.).  We hope that yearbooks will be picked up at Lynhaven after the shelter in place order has been lifted, otherwise it will be in the fall when we return. We will keep you updated with the details!
If you are not able to pre-pay and order online, please let your teacher know you would like one so they can get an accurate order count and you can purchase one when they arrive.  Any questions, feel free to email our PTA at lynhavenpta [at]

Beginning Monday, 4/20, the Lynhaven office will be open and staffed for phone calls only. The office hours will be Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10:00-2:00 and closed on Friday. If you need to reach our Community Liaison, Noelia Smith, you can call her directly at (408) 556-0368 ext. 4839.

You will be receiving an important message from your teacher regarding picking up more materials to facilitate our Distance Learning through the rest of the school year. While our school buildings are closed, school is not over. Our teachers will be distributing the materials on certian days and at certain times to allow for social distancing guidelines to be followed. Please make every effort to get the materials your child will need to continue the flow of teaching and learning. We ask that only one family member get out of the car to get materials and that children stay in the car. Thank you for understanding.

Hello Lynhaven Families,
We hope you all are doing well and staying safe! All of us would like to be back in our normal routines, but with this change to help keep everyone safe, we have to become familiar with a new normal. We will do our best to continue teaching and learning from a distance. While we were hoping to see you all soon, it looks as if this will be lasting longer. The most important thing right now is that you and your families stay safe and find happiness in your time together. 
As you are aware, we will be moving from the optional, flexible learning plans to a distance learning platform. This means that students will be expected to participate with the lessons their teachers are planning. Understandably, we all are dealing with a lot of challenging situations right now, and we know that it can be very overwhelming, but we would not be doing our due diligence if we didn't continue teaching and helping our students learn.  It's very important to keep in contact with your teacher about any needs you have and continue to check the district and our school websites for information. Our staff is here to help you. We know you are doing your best! Please take care of yourselves! We miss you all.
