Upcoming Events

Lynhaven Parent Handbook

Inquiring minds want to stay in the know about our school expectations!

We encourage our families to stay aware of the expectations for student safety and success at our school. It is important to read through our handbook with your students as there have been updates to our handbook. Some of them are listed below:

-all bicycles and skateboards must be walked on campus by adults and children. Bicycles will be locked to the bike rack and skateboards will be kept in classrooms or the office during the school day. 

-there is no playing on the play structures in the Kindergarten yard or on the big playground before or after school. Any students not enrolled in our after school programs must leave campus at dismissal. 

Thank you for supporting our expectations for student academic success and social development.

Students Practice Coding with Google Engineers

Our 5th grade students had the opportunity to put their coding skills to the test alongside Google Engineers!

Mrs. Schonig's 5th grade class for 2018-19 promoted onto middle school in June, but before they left, they had the opportunity to practice coding with Google Engineers. They were featured in an article on the Google website promoting their partnership with our school! Please take a look! We plan on continuing to foster this relationship and plan more hands-on opportunities for our students in the growing engineering field.

“Future of Learning” is Focus for District, Partners

"Our strategic planning committee identified the skills and competencies that our students will need to prepare them for their futures—futures with so much variability in what they're going to be facing as adults," said District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez.

Local community leaders (pictured here) joined hundreds of district employees for the all-staff meeting to celebrate accomplishments and reaffirm the commitment to the district’s mission: Educating each child to their highest potential.

“We are fortunate to have the support of many community partners who join us in our mission so that every student can thrive,” Viramontez added. 

The event featured guest speaker Sabba Quidwai, of Apple Inc., (pictured with microphone) who presented inspiring ideas about the future of learning and trends in skill demands of the future workplace. The top two needs: Be able to work on and solve unstructured problems, and be able to communicate.

She said that preparing students for the demands of the future workplace is, itself, a huge unstructured problem. She noted that the district’s Profile of a Graduate (POG) competencies are just what is called for—being self-directed, empathetic, innovative, collaborative and a critical thinker—and encouraged us to keep at this important work and keep sharing our experiences and stories. 
“As global citizens, the more we learn about one another, our challenges and our opportunities, the more we can work together to solve the most pressing issues of our time,” she said.

The event ended with a sequel video about Profile of a Graduate that featured the students of Campbell Union School District describing how they leveraged the POG skills to enhance their learning.
