In Good Hands

During our recent staff Development Day the Lynn Woods educators learned about RTI (Response to Intervention) which focuses on delivering instruction via three tiers of instruction.   Quality educators are constantly learning and experimenting with new strategies and technique while matching them to the needs of the learners in front of them.  I am thrilled to say that the Lynn Woods teachers practice this philosophy!
After lunch we spent some time being trained by Lt. Zukas of the Lynn Fire Dept.   He taught us CPR, including the use of our new defibrillator.   He also taught us the Heimlich maneuver.  Thank you so much for taking the time to train us……let us hope we never need to use it!

Veteran’s Day

Lynn Woods School recognized Veteran’s Day with a special Veteran’s Day Assembly.  Under the direction of our music teacher, Ms. Cohen the 4th and 5th grade students prepared some patriotic songs for the school.  Students in Grades 2 and 3 recited poetry from memory. The gym was decorated with lovely patriotic artwork.  Students in Grades 2 and 3 also created poppies that were distributed at our assembly.  The LEHS ROTC presented colors and performed a routine.  It is clear why they have won so many awards.  Thank you LEHS ROTC!  PS…..the poppies were made from recycled products from the new Lynn Business EXCL.

Science, Science Everywhere.....thanks to General Electric!

Once again our GE neighbor has been generous enough to support the implementation of the Science Program, KNOW ATOMS.   This program brings hands on Science experiments that require the students to use the Scientific Method.   In addition to their incredible generosity, the GE also allows engineers from the GE to visit and volunteer at the school.  This allows our students to benefit from the knowledge and experience of real life engineers.  We are truly fortunate and grateful to the GE because the KNOW ATOMS program is a gift to our students.  At this point students in Grades 3, 4 & 5 are involved.  Ask them about it!

Here our 4th graders have created a concoction to test density.  Our GE volunteer, watches closely.

On the same day, down the hall, the 5th graders were testing minerals.  Look at the intensity and involvement of the students.   Another GE volunteer, works with a small group testing minerals under special light.

Art Contest

 MEFA is offering the 8th Annual Art Competing for students in Grades 3-5.  You are welcome to submit a piece of artwork illustrating "What do I want to be when I graduate from college?"  The winners will receive $5000 in a UFund 529 College investing plan and the artwork will be displayed in a calendar.  Give it a try!
