A fresh theme for the 2019-2020 school year

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 High School

Principal: Ian Freeman

Assistant Principal: Michelle Nilsen

LHS will focus on developing student understanding and growing academic language that arises throughout classes at LHS. “We often hear about how a student performed poorly on tests simply because they didn’t understand what a word or question meant,” Freeman says. “As a staff, we will be highly intentional about using academic language, but even more importantly, we will be intentional about teaching academic language.” Freeman says a student’s ability to succeed within education is unlocked by developing vocabulary, understanding and use of academic language, all across the school.
