Welcome

Welcome to Lynnwood School! We are delighted that you are considering having your family as members of this great community of parents, students and staff.

We are an elementary school, conveniently located in the west end of Edmonton, just off 149th Street and the Whitemud Freeway. The school opened in 1959 and had an extensive modernization in 1999. Our school building is in excellent condition, offering bright, modern facilities for our students and staff.

Lynnwood School offers a regular elementary program, a district site for the Gifted & Talented program, and a district site for the Community Learning Skills program (for students with moderate to severe cognitive delays). Because of this, Lynnwood School meets the educational needs of a very diverse student population of approximately 300 students from kindergarten to grade 6.

An active school co-curricular program provides opportunities for students to extend their learning beyond the classroom. Field trips and guest performers which support curriculum are provided through the generous donations of our School Council, fundraising activities and from the school budget. School programs and activities include intramural sports, school choir, hand bells, AMA School Patrols, running teams, community service, a library program, a mindfulness program to promote positive citizenship, and a variety of in-class leadership opportunities.

Our goal, to challenge all students at a level appropriate to their readiness and ability within an atmosphere of mutual respect and dignity, is advanced by working closely with parents as partners. Parents are actively involved with our School Council, as volunteers, and supporting classroom activities.

While our students achieve excellent results on Provincial Tests, our goal is to continue to emphasize student achievement in the core subjects. A safe and positive school climate for staff and students is a priority, and we rely upon, and value, the partnership of the home and the school. We work collaboratively with students and their families to provide the best educational experience and social opportunities possible.

 

 

 

 

Principal's Message

Welcome to Lynnwood School!

We are so excited to work with your children to support their growth and learning this year!

At Lynnwood, we are committed to providing engaging learning opportunities for all students.  We understand that every student has unique passions, interests and strengths.  As a staff, we will work collaboratively to ensure that students have the support they need to reach their full potential.

We strive to create and nurture a school community that is positive and caring so that students feel confident in taking risks in pursuit of excellence.  We endeavor to help students to see mistakes not as failures, but as essential parts of the learning process.  

We believe that strong relationships between staff, students, families, and the community contribute greatly to creating positive school experiences for students.  At Lynnwood, we are committed to ongoing communication with home to ensure parents are informed about student learning and activities.  We will use SchoolZone regularly to provide parents with essential information.  The support of a fantastic Parent Council and Parent Society allows us to offer students opportunities related to technology, fine arts, physical fitness, and more. 

You will find a copy of our Parent and Student Handbook on this website.  This is intended to provide a framework for working together as a school community.  Our handbook contains a great deal of information related to our expectations, processes, and procedures. We ask that all parents review this document with their child(ren) each year.

Thank you for entrusting your children to us and we look forward to working with you!

Sincerely,

Christine Dibben

Principal
