Upcoming Events

Special Olympics at Lynhaven

On Friday, April 5th, Lynhaven students participated in our own Special Olympics. There were 72 students in all who had a wonderful time playing basketball, scooter ball, getting their faces painted. They all received a participation ribbon at the end. Here are some photos from the day! I am so proud of these students and our same-aged peers from the General Education classes who came to support and participate with them. Big thank you to our P.E. teachers, Coach T. and Mr. Prado, and Cameron from the Special Olympics along with our district team who helped make this happen! 

Springtime Reminders for all

Spring has sprung on our campus and we hope you all enjoyed the week off and were able to spend time with family and friends and traveled somewhere or enjoyed a "stay-cation". As the weather gets warmer, we want to give you a few safety reminders:  

-We appreciate every effort you make in arriving to school on-time for drop off and for pick up. Students are aware that if they are waiting on pick-up, they are sitting on the grass so that the teachers on yard duty can supervise. It's very important that all students follow the expectations of our school and are not running and playing on the campus or in the hallways after dismissal. It is a safety issue. 

-Please refrain from allowing students to ride scooters or bicycles in the hallways at arrival or dismissal. Our Bike rodeo is coming up on May 21st at 2:30, and it's a wonderful event for students to bring their bikes/scooters/roller skates to school and ride through an obstacle course on the playground. 

-All students must wear shoes with a strap on the back. Flip flop sandals are not allowed at school. 

Thank you in advance for helping our students stay safe while on campus! 

State testing begins 4/22

State testing will begin soon. Formerly known as the SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium), the test is now referred to as CAASSP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) 

Important information:

-All 3rd through 5th grade students in General Education and Special Education will be tested beginning April 18th with practice tests. 

-Testing will take place for all grades beginning on 4/22 PROMPTLY at 8:30am  until 10:00am. Testing days vary for grades so please talk to your teacher to verify the dates and times. Students arriving AFTER 8:30 will not be permitted into the classrooms and will have to make up the tests. 

-Students are encouraged to bring their own headphones for the tests so that they are comfortable. We do have the earbud type headphones for them to use. 

-As always, its even more important for our students to get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast during testing. 

-We ask that appointments are not scheduled during the testing times. 

- Most importantly, we remind our students to do their best everyday, get a good night's sleep, and eat breakfast. We appreciate you supporting this message as well.
