Lynx Bulletin 5/5/2023

Lynx Bulletin


Did you know May 5, commemorates the anniversary of Mexico's victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza. Cinco de Mayo didn’t become popular in the United States until President Franklin D. Roosevelt enacted the “Good Neighbor Policy” which was intended to improve relations with Latin American countries and communities, so with that Happy Cinco de Mayo!

School Site Council 
Our next SSC meeting will be Thursday, May 18 at 2:30pm. You may see the Agenda here. All are welcome to attend this meeting!

Are you returning to Lynhaven next school year? 

We will be sending out a Parent Square message with a form attached to it next week, asking if your student will be returning next school year. 

By completing this short questionnaire, you help us to plan for next year. Thank you!

Message from PTA

PTA is still in need of a President and Secretary for 2023-2024; without these essential roles, Lynhaven will not have a PTA next year. 

There was a date change to our final PTA General Association meeting. It will now be on Tuesday, 5/23 at 7:00 p.m. via zoom. See link below. We will go over a proposed budget for next year and vote on how PTA funds will be spent, with the hope that people will come forward into these roles. 

If you are interested or have questions, please reach out to us! We would love to talk with you! Please email lynhavenpta [at] :) Go Lynx!
