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.

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 progress!

Wolf Trot 5K April 5th

Lynn Woods School - Wolf Trot 5K

Saturday, April 5, 2014 - START TIME:  11AM

@ Great Woods Road Entrance, Lynn Woods Reservation.

The Lynn Woods Wolf Trot is a race through Lynn Woods – a 5K (LONG RACE) and 3K (SHORT RACE) open to the public.  Funds raised defray costs for Nature’s Classroom Trip (5th grade) and build the classroom funds for all other grades.


A $100 donation puts you or your business name on our race t-shirt.

The biggest costs associated with racing events are timing and t-shirts.  Last year our sponsors helped us cover all operating costs, which means more money for cool programs and activities at Lynn Woods School!

CAN YOU RUN or WALK with us on April 5th?

Our next biggest need is race participants.  We had 225 folks show up last year, and it was AWESOME, so share our race sign up information with everyone you know.    The first 100 registrants get a complimentary race t-shirt.  Run or walk, short or long race…we need your participation.  Teams welcome as well!!!  Paper registration forms or sign up on

CAN YOU HELP in other ways?

Donations of healthy snacks:  oranges, bananas, grapes, snack bars, etc. (NO NUTS PLEASE!)

A Powerful Olympic Poem by Robert D in Grade 3

Oh my I just heard the Olympics are starting!

Last place does not deserve to be champion but trying….YES!

Yet trying does not mean medals, only winners have them.

Main event, every four years and a big competition.

Participants play for the prize and pride

Indeed, during the opening ceremony the torch flies with flame.

Certain times an athlete wins a lot - and certain times they lose

Sportsmanship is needed to play for international champion and for changing the world.
