A fresh theme for the 2019-2020 school year
Posted on 09/10/2019

Principals across Lynden Schools have taken a wholistic view to the start of school, creating themes and focus points designed to last an entire school year. 

Lynden Middle School

Principal: Molly Mitchell-Mumma

Assistant Principal: Cyndi Selcho

The LMS ASB theme for the year is “We Are LMS.”  LMS staff will focus on how they know students are learning and ensuring effective ways to respond when students need more time and support. By focusing on students’ learning, rather than covering content, teachers will be better equipped to identify gaps in learning and can develop lessons and strategies to address those gaps.  Built into the school schedule is a feature called “Focused Instructional Time” (FIT) which is intended to provide opportunities for students to master expected learning targets when they need additional time and support. In addition, as students enjoy the second year in the new school, new traditions will continue to be established and an important element of these new traditions is to make every student feel welcome and connected. The ASB officers and student leaders have developed a positive school culture campaign aimed at creating an environment where students connect to each other and recognize the strength in diversity. “We know that students who feel like they belong,” Selcho says, “do better in school and we want all students to know they belong because we are all LMS.”
