Lynbrook Excellence in Education (LExE) Update
I would like to thank and recognize Drew Coble for her years serving on the Lynbrook Excellence Board. She was a founding board member and she has been a tireless advocate for students. Her leadership and voice have been crucial to the success of Lynbrook Excellence in Education. Mrs. Coble could always be counted on to ask tough questions and to provide a wise and insightful school-wide perspective. When you see Mrs. Coble, please thank her for her dedication and time. She sacrificed many prep-periods to serve on the board. Thank you, Drew Coble, for getting LExE off to an amazing start and for your five years of service.
This year, Mrs. Evy Ene was elected to be the new Lynbrook Excellence in Education teacher-board member. Thank you, Mrs. Ene, for your willingness to serve in this important capacity.
New Course Possibilities for 2017-18
Next year we would like to be able to add Digital Photography and AP Computer Science Principles to our course offerings. These two new classes will require new equipment. The photography classes will require a $43,000 investment in digital cameras. The computer science teachers would like to add an iMac lab to for the AP Computer Science Principles class and expand to two computer platforms. The school has some funds set aside, but not enough to fully equip the programs. The school would like to partner with Lynbrook Excellence in Education to get these two programs off the ground for the 2017-18 school year. If you would like to be a part of fueling our future, please visit the LEXE website to make a donation.Click HERE. If we have enough students choose the classes during course selection, and if we have the necessary equipment, we will be able to offer the classes next year.
