From the desk of Principal Wickus
Mr. Ingles and I attended the School of Recognition Celebration for being a High-Progress School on October 13, 2014 at the Capitol. I continue to be proud of our rigorous programming and attention to student needs which enabled us to receive this award. In Lyndon, we continue to focus on Reading and Math achievement for all students and this award recognizes this.
I have had the opportunity to visit several classrooms over the past month. Our 3rd grade students have been busy learning about writing strategies in Ms. Azarian’s classroom. The students were engaged in writing paragraphs focusing on punctuation and topic sentences.
In Ms. Van Enkenvort classroom, students were engaged in learning measurement in Math. In both classrooms, small group collaboration and teacher assisted learning stations were present.
Our professional development days have been filled with lots of learning. This month teachers learned more about writing instruction and Educator Effectiveness, as well as meeting with their professional learning communities. In Lyndon, our educators worked to create interventions for students within the classroom and during intervention time.
We have had some vandalism in the past two weeks on our playground and by the doors of the building. These incidents have been reported to the Sheriff’s Department and Chief Greg Jessen. If you have any information on this, please contact Chief Jessen.
The team at Lyndon did a fabulous job of cleaning up the doors so the learning was not interrupted. Great Job Team!
Please remember to read with your student for at least 30 minutes a day!
