Clubs & Activities
Lynnwood School supports the development of the whole child and offers diverse extracurricular opportunities for student participation. Activities are teacher and student driven and are created based on staff and student interest. The specific clubs and activities offered will vary from year to year. Some examples of clubs and activities that have run are:
Mask Making Club
Thinking Games Club
We also have many field trips and guest performers that support curriculum. Our Parent Council assist to subsidize both field trips and guest performers through School Council fundraising activities.
Students at Lynnwood School are provided with many opportunities to be leaders in the school. Some of those options are: school patrols, milk sellers, intramural referees, student announcers, CLS mentors, and classroom leadership opportunties.
Our students, staff and families support and organize many local and international community service projects throughout the year. Some of the community service projects completed in recent years include: Terry Fox Run, Santa’s Anonymous, Jump Rope for Heart, Edmonton Food Bank, Poppy Sales, Operation Candy, Valentines for Seniors, collecting hats and mittens to donate to children at other schools, and the Mustard Seed.
Last May we introduced the Lynnwood students to a new program called PEACE@LYNNWOOD (PAL).
PEACE@LYNNWOOD is a program designed to create peace within ourselves, our relationships and our school/community through:
BEING: Awareness of self and the present moment,
FEELING: Positively towards self, others and property,
DOING: Acting instead of reacting.
The first three months (September-December) focuses on making peace with ourselves through exploring self-awareness, self-care, self-respect as well as our attitudes.
January through March shifts towards making peace with others. Themes such as kindness, problem solving and empathy will be the focus.
The end of the school year (April-June) will involve making peace in our school/community where fairness, giving and gratitude will be celebrated.
This schedule is flexible and will shift and flow with the needs of the school.
We look forward to sharing more information with you as the year unfolds andwill be asking for your feedback and participation. Stay tuned and stay peaceful.
