Lynbrook High School  | Summer Mailer July 2017

Dear Lynbrook Students, Parents and Guardians,

YOUR ONLINE July Packet of information

The PTSA and Lynbrook Excellence (LExE) have sponsored the paper mailing as a convenience to all Lynbrook families. This email contains access to online versions of the mailed forms.  Every school year, students and parents are asked to fill out many important forms (some are required and others are voluntary).  Some of the forms provide you with the opportunity to donate. Your donations of money and time are a crucial part of maintaining the high quality programs at Lynbrook High School, and they are sincerely appreciated!

Preliminary 2017-18 Schedules Sent through Chalk Schools

Look for an email in the last week of July with your student’s preliminary class schedule. It is important that you check your spam/junk mail folders to make sure important emails are not being removed from your inbox.  You will need to electronically “sign” that you have received this email.

Drops ONLY & Change Days

The LHS website continues to be the source of the latest information throughout the school year. Make the website the first place you look for news and assistance. Our main office will open on July 31, 2017. Teachers return on Wednesday, August 9, 2017. The first day of school is Monday, August 14, 2017.

Viking Days, August 7th & 8th in the Field House

9th Graders: Monday, 8/7/17 from 12:30-2:30 PM -  10th ,11th & 12th Graders: Tuesday, 8/8/17 from 8:30am-3:30pm.

Viking Days are important! Students take photos, get their ID, and pick up their official class schedules. All students should attend the Viking Day for their grade level. If you use the paper forms enclosed, students will bring the paper forms (with checks attached) on Viking Days. If you completed and submitted forms online, students only need to bring checks on Viking Days (be sure to include student name and ID# on the memo line of each check—students do not need to attach the check to a form if the form was submitted online).

The 4c’s -- 21st Century skills for college, career and life

As a school community, we are focused on and committed to this vision:

Lynbrook High School’s vision is to create a dynamic environment of respect and achievement

where all can learn deeply, apply their knowledge and contribute purposefully.

We are continuing to target our efforts toward our identified long term school goals that include multi-year strategies and program development in the following areas:

High Levels of Learning & Performance for ALL students

Teachers will continue to work together in their Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and Course-alike Teams (CATs) to provide students with a guaranteed and viable curriculum. Teachers strive to calibrate course content and student performance expectations for consistency across classes.

Equipping ALL students with 21st Century Skills – Lynbrook’s 4C’s

2017-18 is the YEAR OF THE TEAM- We will be focusing on COLLABORATION skills

Managing Stress & Building Resilience in ALL students

Our team of mental health professionals is putting together a slate of speakers for parents and staff and will also be working on ways to promote wellness and equip students to manage stress.

Phase 1: Fitness Center under Construction & Phase 2: Quad Project in final design

Construction on Phase 1, the new fitness facility, is underway. If all goes as planned, it will be completed by the end of the coming 2017-18 school year. Architects are working diligently to complete the design plans for Phase 2, the New Quad, Cafeteria and Gym Lobby. They are aiming to have plans into the California Division of the State Architect in the Fall of 2017.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to review all of the important information that follows. It is your careful consideration and attention that helps keep Lynbrook a thriving community of curious and capable learners!

Enjoy your summer! We will see you in August for another great school year!

GO VIKES!

Maria Jackson, Principal

Something to Think About

Talking About Failure: What Parents Can Do to Motivate Kids in School

Is failure a positive opportunity to learn and grow, or is it a negative experience that hinders success? How parents answer that question has a big influence on how much children think they can improve their intelligence through hard work, a study says.


Harvard Rescinds Acceptances for At Least Ten Students for Obscene Memes

Harvard College rescinded admissions offers to at least ten prospective members of the Class of 2021 after the students traded sexually explicit memes and messages that sometimes targeted minority groups in a private Facebook group chat.
