Mrs. Montalto brightens our halls with her smile each and every day!
Lyncrest kicked off the week of respect with Brian Chevalier and The Respect Tour, sponsored by the Lyncrest PTO. The students wore blue to stomp out bullying on World Day of Bullying Prevention. The students and staff learned more about respect today in a fun, musical way!
Our fourth graders have been busy this month! An award ceremony, moving up ceremony, yearbook breakfast, and immigration fair were just some of the fun activities they have participated in before starting their journey at Memorial next year!
Good Evening Fair Lawn Parents/Guardians,
The Fair Lawn Board of Education is working with Strategic Educational Advantage (“SEA”) Search firm to assist it in identifying a Superintendent of Schools to lead the Fair Lawn Public Schools. As part of this process, SEA is seeking input from our families. Your input will help build the profile, characteristics, and experience the new superintendent will possess. We thank you for assisting and your participation in this process.
You are invited to participate on Tuesday, June 13th at 7:30pm in the FLHS Auditorium so that you can provide feedback and hear about the timeline and process.
Thank you for participating if you are able to make it.
Ron Barbarulo, FL BOE President

This morning it was Lyncrest’s turn to have Thermo Fisher Scientific work with our 4th graders! We became scientists and extracted DNA from strawberries! Did you know strawberries yield more DNA than any other fruit???
Lyncrest School sponsored our annual "Make the World Better with a Holiday Sweater" campaign, this year benefitting the International Dyslexia Association. Students and staff sent in donations totaling over $700 and decorated a sweater which was proudly displayed in school.
