Thank you Barry Burbank & WBZ Channel 4

Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from Barry Burbank, meteorologist for WBZ TV, Channel 4 in Boston.  (CBS affiliate)  He taught us all about weather and how they forecast the weather. 
 
At the end of his great presentation, they recorded a “Morning Message” that will air tomorrow morning during the newscast.  It will air once between 5-6 am and then once again between 6 and 7a.m.  All of the “First In Math” Players of the Day were selected to say “Good morning Boston!” and then he filmed the rest of grades 3, 4 and 5 waving hello!  You can also see a video of us airing between 5 and 6pm, but this video will not have any audio!
 
Be sure to set your DVR or wake up and watch the morning news to see our Lynn Woods School!

Great job on the court !

Both our basketball teams did a fabulous job during the recent annual tournament. Both the boys and girls made it to the finals and represented us in true Lynn Woods style.

Congratulations!

Lynn Woods School was one of only 48 schools across the Commonwealth that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education recognized this year as a 2013 Commendation School for high achievement, high progress and narrowing proficiency gaps. 
This is the certificate of achievement that we received at school and I wanted to share it with the entire school community, since this accomplishment truly defines team work and collaborative effort! 


Building Literacy skills.......in progress!
